4.6 litre engine for the Plus 8 becomes an option. Producing 220 bhp at 5,000 rpm and increasing torque to 260lb ft at 3,600 rpm. With almost every extra going, including air bags, the price was now just under £38,000.00. Autocar wrote 'However much you want to slam the Morgan for its outdated dynamics and chronic ergonomics, it is hard not to be won over by the skill of the craftsmanship and the undiluted character of the driving experience. You are not merely buying a car but a perfectly preserved piece of motoring history.'

A number of production improvement where introduced including aluminium superform wings (all except the 4/4), longer doors, redesigned facia to allow for airbags and generally improved materials throughout.
