The Morgan Plus 8 is a sports car built by British car maker Morgan from 1968 to 2004 and again in revised form between 2012 and 2018. Its instant and enduring popularity has been credited with saving the company and keeping the company famous during the 36 years of its manufacture. Among Morgan enthusiasts, it is deeply associated with Peter Morgan, the owner-chairman behind its design. The production Plus 8 was launched in 1968 using Rover's production engine, a re-engineered version of the Buick 215 motor (renamed the 3.5 L by Rover) with a compression of 10.5:1 originally fueled by two SU HS6 carburettors. When the Rover Group re-certified their V8 engine for use in the Range Rover SUV sold in the U.S., Morgan made a petrol-powered +8 available with the same engine in the same tune and with the same anti-emission devices.
