The Morgan range of contemporary sports cars holds true to Morgan philosophy – pure, elegant, light and fast.
Using the best quality materials, aluminium, ash and leather, every Morgan is created with passion, care and dedication by the craftsmen and women at the small factory in the picturesque Malvern Hills.
Incorporating the most modern drivetrain technology, a Morgan will not only perform, but deliver low running costs and low carbon emissions too.
The 4/4 Sport takes purity to a new level. A back to basics car, the elegance is in the simplicity.
Available in a choice of 8 colours and a Saddle brown leather interior as standard, the 4/4 Sport has been designed to appeal to all ages as the iconic Sports Car.
With its peppy 1.6 litre 110 Bhp engine and weighing in at under 800Kg, the 4/4 Sport delivers fun in abundance. Carbon emissions of just 139g/km make this the lowest emitting sports car in the world. The perfect balance between tradition and modernity without the smallest compromise.
If it’s more performance you desire, the Morgan Plus 4’s lightweight hand-crafted body still follows the flowing lines of the original, but these days it’s driven by the latest generation Ford 2.0 litre Duratec 145 Bhp four cylinder engine. This high power lightweight car delivers 0-62 in 7.3 seconds, and an amazing ability to put in fast averages thanks to its balance and power delivery.
The Morgan 4 seater has always been a well kept secret, despite being in production for over 70 years. Available as either a 2.0 litre Plus 4 or 220 Bhp 3.0 litre V6 Roadster, this model adds a new dimension to Morgan ownership, and with just one 4 seater rolling out each week, exclusivity is guaranteed.
Two generous rear seats fold forward to give a large load area. Child seats can be fitted to ensure that the whole family whatever age can enjoy the delights of open air Morgan motoring.
The ultimate development of the traditional line is the smooth, powerful 3.0 V6 Roadster. Weighing only 940 Kg, the 220 Bhp Roadster sprints to 60 mph in around 5 seconds, yet still delivers co2 emissions of just 225 g/km. A very low figure for supercar performance. New for 2010 is the Roadster Sport, which like its 4/4 sibling comes in a standard specification available in 8 colours, albeit with a much higher level of standard specification.
Morgan build cars for people who want a highly individual sports car that’s fun to drive. Although the Classic Range has been shaped by a long heritage, the emphasis now is on modern use, environmental considerations and fuel efficiency.
