Morgan has stolen the show at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance after it unveiled this: the sensational-looking Eva GT – a four-seater luxury grand tourer that will go into production at the Malvern-based sports car specialist’s factory in 2012.
The Eva GT will break new ground for Morgan by offering accommodation for four and their luggage, in a vehicle built using the firm’s unique aluminium body and chassis technologies.
Underneath the Eva GT lies a development of the same lightweight bonded aluminium chassis you’ll find in the Aeromax Supersports, and wrapped around it are superformed aluminium body panels similar to those adopted by the aircraft industry.
However, inside this new Morgan is a proper two-plus-two cabin layout and a generous boot, making it a much more practical offering than any of the Aero-series cars that have preceeded it.
“It’s intended to be capable as serving as everyday family transport as well as a luxury GT,” Charles Morgan told Autocar. “The rear seats will be comfortable for children and small adults, and should serve for occasional use for taller occupants.”
