The bush-bashing two-seater costs almost as much as a Lamborghini Huracan.
British sports car manufacturer Morgan has unveiled an all-terrain off-roader, known as the Plus Four CX-T.
Designed and built in Worcestershire in conjunction with modification firm Rally Raid UK, the vehicle shares many of its components with the standard road-going Plus Four sports car.
However, it has been retuned for increased ground clearance and improved grip on loose surfaces. A tubular ‘exoskeleton’ also provides added storage at the rear, and helps to maintain structural integrity in a roll-over accident.
A turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine sends 190kW/350Nm to the wheels via a six-speed manual transmission, allowing the 0-100km/h sprint to be completed in 5.2 seconds on tarmac. Torque is apportioned through a BMW X-Drive electronic differential on the rear axle.
Bespoke suspensions allows for 230mm of ground clearance, and steel underbody protection plates guard the exhaust and drivetrain against large protruding obstacles.
Just eight examples are slated for production, priced from £170,000 (AU$335,000) before shipping and on-road costs.
