It was introduced in 2004 replacing the Morgan Plus 8; the car is identical to its predecessor except for new modern Ford V6 mechanicals. The new engine develops similar power, though less torque, is lighter than the Rover V8 which results in increased performance and better fuel economy. Air conditioning is now standard on U. S. models. Like its predecessor, the chassis consists of a standard ladder frame design and is built from galvanised steel with five tubular or box section cross members; the body is built of aluminum around an ash frame. Suspension is traditional Morgan slider type solid axle / leaf spring at the rear. Unlike its predecessor, the Roadster was available as a 4-seater; the standard colour range is Royal Ivory, Corsa Red, Indigo Blue, Connaught Green, Black, but any single colour or two-tone combination from the ICI Autocolour range is available as an option.

Amanita verna

Amanita verna known as the fool's mushroom, destroying angel or the mushroom fool, is a deadly poisonous basidiomycete fungus, one of many in the genus Amanita. Occurring in Europe in spring, A. verna associates with various coniferous trees. The caps and gills are all white in colour. Amanita verna was first mentioned in the scientific literature by French mycologist Jean Bulliard in 1780 as form vernus of Agaricus bulbosus. Bulliard warned that it could be confused with the edible field mushroom, that remedies for those who had eaten it included putting vitriolic ether in wine or crushed garlic in milk; the species name verna is derived from the Latin word for "spring". Three years Jean-Baptiste Lamarck gave it distinct species status in his Encyclopédie Méthodique, Botanique; the fool's mushroom known as the spring destroying angel or death angel, is a close relative of Amanita phalloides, the death cap, a member of the mushroom genus Amanita. Amanita verna, like its close relative, belongs to the subfamily Phalloideae.

The fool's mushroom is all the way to the gills and the stipe. This fungus, like all amanitas, has a volva; the fool's mushroom's cap is 5–10 cm wide, is about the same height. This mushroom's lamellae is free and white, the volva is bag-like and large, its annulus is white and membranous, A. verna react yellow with 20% potassium hydroxide solution, unlike its relative Amanita phalloides var. alba while Amanita virosa gets an orangeyellow reaction. The mushroom's spores are elliptical; the fool's mushroom grows in European woodlands and hardwood forests in springtime as the fungus' Latin name suggests. Unlike various related poisonous amanitas, this mushroom is not known to occur in North America. Related to other deadly pure white amanitas, the fool's mushroom is one of the most poisonous mushrooms in the world. Just like the death cap, this organism contains a fatal dose of alpha-amanitin, which causes liver failure if not treated immediately. While this mushroom contains phallotoxins, these phallotoxins are not toxic to humans as they are poorly absorbed.

This mushroom's toxicity and symptoms are similar, if not identical to that of the death cap. Like other members of the subfamily Phalloideae, the fool's mushroom has been implicated in a number of serious or fatal poisonings. There are no negative symptoms from eating this fungus until 6–24 hours after ingestion; the first symptom is unease. Violent cramps and diarrhea follow. On the third day, the same symptoms repeat themselves, but while to many this may seem like a sign of recovery, most of the time it is a herald of the final onset of symptoms, which include kidney and liver failure due to amatoxins. At this point, drastic measures like liver transplants need to be taken, or the victim would most die. Amanitin List of Amanita species List of deadly fungi Mushroom poisoning
