Morgan Eva GT revealed
17th August, 2010
The stunning new Morgan Eva GT made its public debut at
the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in California (USA) on Sunday 15th August 2010.
Its existence marks a departure for the 101-year old family owned Morgan Motor Company, in that it is
the first time in the long history of the company that it has built a 4-seater coupe.
The design goal with this car was to manufacture a stylish but practical coupe that could be used
every day and answer all the typical family’s transport needs.
Although it has only two, but large doors, the car can seat four adults and has a spacious boot
(reference the current Morgan Aero SuperSports, but it is considerably deeper on the Eva GT with a hatch
As with all Morgans, the car will be fun to drive with sensitive hydraulic power steering and excellent
balance. The mass is evenly distributed within the axles and the car has short overhangs.

Morgan Cars Australia is currently accepting orders with a request for a deposit of $15,000 to ensure an
early allocated build slot for this very special car. The first 100 cars are planned for production to
begin in mid-2012 and Australia is expected to receive a reasonable allocation.
Pricing cannot be confirmed at present, but the Morgan Eva GT will be price positioned well below the
current limited edition Aero SuperSports “flagship” model, but above the current top Classic model, the
Morgan Roadster. This means a likely price position in the $200,000 to $300,000 range.
