The 2015 Morgan AR Plus 4 has been revealed at this year’s Silverstone Classic race meeting.
The AR Plus 4 is intended to commemorate 65 years of the Plus 4 and has been developed and will be produced by AR Motorsport, the company’s racing division.
It will be powered by a 225bhp Cosworth engine and promises to be the most powerful 2.0-litre Morgan ever produced. Although Morgan has not yet revealed any performance figures for the new model, it is expected to manage the 0-60mph dash in around 6sec and weighs just 900kg. This is the first time that Morgan has used a Cosworth engine in one of its cars.
The AR Plus 4 is a road car, despite its racing background, and limited to a production run of just 50 cars. It is described as having every available performance upgrade and a "fully loaded" interior.
It gets a selection of upgrades over the standard Plus 4, including an all-new suspension system, adjustable shock absorbers, new brakes and a revised chassis. Styling upgrades include 16-inch matt black alloy wheels, aluminium floor and door panels, AR Motorsport details and stickers throughout, a black Union Jack badge and footwell lighting
