“Down with the old” – this is exactly what the engineers of the British automaker think. Is it about creating hybrid powertrains? Yes, but no …

The manufacturer of British sports cars, the company Morgan, has been using good V8 engines in its models for several years now. At first they used Land Rover brand engines, and then BMW. Despite the fact that the yard is already 21st century, the guys continue to create classic sports cars.

Now there is reliable information about the new model of the company Morgan, which will be presented next year.

“We are pleased to announce the launch of our new sports car, in the coming weeks and months we will publish additional details about it,” said Graeme Chapman, technical director of Morgan Motor Company. “The launch of this car in 2019 will be the culmination of several years of unprecedented investment for our company in design and engineering.”

  The car from engineers of the British automaker, which was developed in recent years, will use a completely new platform made of aluminum. It is reported that due to the widespread use of the most modern technologies, the new platform will be more rigid than the one used on the previous flagship of Morgan. As for the engine for the novelty, then, according to the representatives of the brand, it will also be innovative – there are rumors that the power plant will be borrowed from the Aston Martin Vanquish.
