The new Morgan Roadster 3.7 is deceptively fast with a Ford Cyclone six cylinder engine. Power delivery is smooth and consistent all the way up to the maximum engine revolutions of 6850 per minute. The overall weight of this aluminium car is only 950kg which spells a power to weight ratio of around300bhp per tonne. Power delivery is transmitted to the road through a limited slip differential with cone drive for good traction off the line. The 6 cylinder engine and 6 speed transmission provide an excellent combination of performance and economy. Carbon emissions are extremely low for a fast sports car.
The cockpit offers the perfect enthusiastic driver's environment with plenty of room combined with the luxury and special feel of real leather. The large well designed speedometer and rev counter are fitted into a completely new dashboard featuring electronic warning systems and digital and analogue displays for all engineering functions. There is even a stop watch to measure your lap time. The instruments and dials are framed in wood and the highest quality materials are used throughout this coachbuilt car.
The convertible roof is easy to fasten and provides a warm secure environment.
