    • Toyota isn't the only one getting B58 power - Morgan Plus Six with BMW I6 turbo power in a 2400 pound chassis

      Morgan is a manufacturer we need today. Why? Their cars are about the driving experience. Everything they make is fun to drive from the 3 Wheeler to the Morgan Plus Six. The key is keeping things simple and most importantly light.


      The Morgan Plus Six gets BMW B58 power mated to a chassis that comes in at 2370 pounds. Do what you want to your Supra or Z4 but you are not making up a 1000+ pound penalty.

      This is not the first time Morgan utilized BMW power. The Aero 8 series is well known for BMW naturally aspirated power from N62 and S62 engines. The Aero 8 is also more of a modern design and heavier (though still light) compared to the classically styled Plus Six.

      You can see the Z4 automatic shifter in the cabin. Morgan always offered a manual option but not this time around.

      Interesting, isn't it? The most engaging and highest performance car with the B58 motor isn't a BMW or the new Supra. It is the Morgan Plus Six.
