2009, the Centenary year of the Morgan Motor Company was always going to be a busy one, and so it proved. Events throughout the year, included a visit to the factory by the Princess Royal, a mass Centenary factory drive away of new cars, the opening of the new Morgan Visitors Centre and Museum, plus featured Marque displays at Villa d’Este, Goodwood Festival of Speed and Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. As if that wasn’t enough, over 3200 Morgans gathered from 23 countries worldwide in August to celebrate the 100th Birthday at the Cheltenham Racecourse. Concerts, a Gala Dinner for 1000 guests and then a finale Proms in the Park concert with the English Symphony Orchestra and firework display wrapped up a weekend to remember.
2010 looks to be just as successful, with the factory starting production of the new Aero SuperSports, and introducing the new Euro V Roadster Sport. Production has increased to try and meet demand, with nearly 800 vehicles planned for this year – to be the largest ever number of Morgans produced in one year.
