Unveiled at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, Morgan's EvaGT drew some well deserved attention to the thriving British marque. Morgan's goal with the EvaGT was to build a car that was a comfortable daily driver that is worthy of the historic pedigree while also being a thorough performance coupe.

Under the hood is a BMW Twin Turbo straight six that outputs 306 horsepower to get you off the line and going from 0-60 in 4.5 seconds all the way to a impressive 170 mph. A 6 speed manual will be available to our European friends while everyone across the pond in the US will have an automatic gearbox.

Believe it or not, the company also hopes to make the car is efficient as possible, mileage is currently rated at 40 mpg which would make it one of the most fuel efficient performance cars on the road today. If you want one Morgan is currently accepting deposits of $8000 to guarantee you a build slot in the first 100 cars that are projected to be in production in mid 2012. Link
