expensive but...

  1. Re: expensive but...

    How is it too expensive for what it is? Its made of modern materials (not plastics either), its hand made, its a sports car. Many of you like the Lotus Elise. I'm assuming thats because of its lightweight it gets good HP/Weight. Look again at the Morgan. Lotus Elise HP/Metric Ton = 159...Morgan Aero 8 HP/Metric Ton = 286. The Morgan's lightweight construction meshes awesome together with its 286 HP. Besides 280-300 HP is alot any stock car let alone one this light. As far as styling goes...IMO its beautiful.<!-- Signature -->

    vader, f-bodies are dead. thats all i got to say, maybe your right... but i would have liked it alot more with a different Bimmer engine.<!-- Signature -->
     
  3. Re: expensive but...

    Because it is handmade you choose the spec, I am pretty sure that there are road going examples with 350-400bhp in a 1000kg car. <!-- Signature -->
     
  4. It looks so nice !!

    The engine is strong , altough I'd have prefered the new BMW V8 4.4L 333hp.

    I don't know. I didn't really like that era. I liked the 50s, muscle-car era, and the new era, the futuristic era, that we're going through right now.<!-- Signature -->

    Outside it's just like "1936 Delahaye 135 Figoni et Falaschi Competition Court" but new.

    The engine could be smoother, like M5.

    F-bodies ?

    I'm french , does it mean front oriented design ?

    If so , check:

    Viper
    TVR Speed 12 and others

    If not , forget this post.

  11. Re: expensive but...

    the M5 engine would be too powerful for this car....i think....<!-- Signature -->
     
  12. Re: expensive but...

    the race version has over 500 hp and it only wieghs like 17 lbs more. . . .so it could handle it. . . . i dunno if the drivers could. . . <!-- Signature -->

    When did I say anything about f-bodies? Besides, they're not dead, they're "resting". Soon they'll be back. But they are not the matter here. I would have liked it alot more with an Aston Martin or Jaguar engine or even more with an engine that Morgan made themselves, but oh well, it's still a cool car.<!-- Signature -->

    Paint it black, fudge with the frontal appearance a little, and throw a huge rocket engine on the back and I think it would make an awesome Batmobile. Or, keep it the way it is and make it a Bond car (if Bond needs german power then at least go back to British styling).<!-- Signature -->
