Morgan will unveil a new model line-up at the Sunday Times Motor Show later this month.

Now in its 95th year, Morgan will unveil the new Morgan Roadster, a new, high power-to-weight ratio sports car, set to replace the venerable Plus 8 which ceases production just a few days before the show.

Powered by a 3-litre V6, the two-seater Roadster promises to be built using a combination of traditional Morgan chassis and coachwork skills and the latest engine technology.

Also at the show, the 2004 Aero 8, the result of a £2 million development programme, featuring a wider cockpit, new BMW-sourced 4.4-litre V8, ABS, dual airbags, re-engineered front suspension and a ‘substantial’ re-styling of the rear end.

We can’t help thinking they’ve re-styled the wrong end.
