A superb time was had by MSCC & Talk Morgan members at the 2010 Le Mans Classic; from parade laps of the 8-mile Circuit de la Sarthe to watching the classic cars race through the night, the event held over July 9th, 10th and 11th was a resounding success. For a selection of photos, taken by the members of Talk Morgan (which include photos of a variety of classic Morgans, the new Aero SuperSports, the Aeromax, classic racing cars and other cars at Classic Le Mans), you can follow these links: LMC Photos One, Two, Three and Four.
The name 4/4 denoted the change to 4 wheels back in 1936, and the model has had continuous development ever since, culminating in this, the latest in small, lightweight, safe and fun sportscars using the unique fusion of traditional quality materials with the latest in advanced powertrain technology.
The high efficiency 115Bhp 1.6 litre Ford Sigma engine means that full advantage of the 800 kilogramme all up weight can be made. 143 Bhp/tonne gives lively performance with 0-62 mph in under 8 seconds, and with CO2 emissions well below 140g/km means that the Morgan delivers a thoroughly contemporary package.

As discussed on the Morgan discussion group Talk Morgan, the Morgan LIFECar takes a fresh look at transport, offering as revolutionary an approach to personal freedom as did the brilliant Morgan Threewheeler introduced by HFS Morgan nearly 100 years ago.
The LIFECar is powered by a fuel cell that is sized to meet the constant load requirement of cruising (about 20% of peakpower) and as a result significant weight and cost reductions have been made over other designs. By recapturing energy during braking, maximum performance is available to LIFECar for acceleration from this unique mix of technologies. More >
Such was the interest surrounding this unique design that it was decided, with the kind permission of its owner, to make a limited production run of 100 cars, all of which were sold within just a few weeks of its announcement.
Following a two year intense period of production development, and a number of minor improvements to the overall design, the first customer AeroMax is shortly to be delivered.
No expense has been spared in ensuring that the production quality mirrors expectations. Innovations include a world first, the use of high tech super formed aluminium panels for the entire body.
This process allows the most complex of shapes to be made in aluminium which are then fitted over a traditional ash frame. More >
