Morgan Celebrates 60 Year Partnership With Trio Of Special Edition Models [Video]

When you’re a company that has over 110 years of history, chances are that you have a solid group of friends that you can always count on.

One of them is Dutch auto dealer Louwman Exclusive which focuses mostly on Morgan, McLaren, and Maserati models and has worked with the company for over 60 years. As a way of saying thank you, Morgan has unveiled three special edition models that highlight Louwman’s contribution to Morgan’s business. Morgan will only build five …

Morgan Ends EV3 Production, Still Keen On Producing Future EV Models

When Morgan unleashed the limited production EV3 sometime ago, it marked a bold new direction for the revived 3-Wheeler with the EV3 being the first all electric Morgan to be ever produced. However, the project had a number of setbacks, and after four years of development and a very brief career in the Morgan model family, the company revealed that it has formally killed the EV3.   The company revealed this during an interview with Autoblog where the news was made known. The reasons for the death of the EV3 come down to two key factors. The first of these is …

Morgan Plus Four Gains BMW Engine, New Moniker For 2021

Following on the heels of a lone teaser image that was released late last week, Morgan has finally unveiled the all new Plus Four which not only breathes new life into a vaunted nameplate, but also further cementing Morgan’s ties with engine supplier BMW for its future models. When we say all-new, the term is purposely used, with the exterior styling not deviating too much from its core heritage and retro DNA. The new car only shares three percent of its components with the outgoing model, with the front fascia, side profile, and the elegant rear deck all reminiscent of …

Morgan Teases Upcoming Four Cylinder Model For Geneva, Is It A Next Generation Plus 4?

Morgan is embarking on perhaps the most ambitious era that it has ever undertaken. The company started things off by rolling out an all new aluminum platform that replaced the iconic 83 year old steel ladder chassis, and it also ditched V8s, with the firm replacing them with BMW sourced turbocharged inline six engines. The sweeping changes for the company will continue on for 2020 with the Malvern based company confirming that it is cooking up an all new model which will make its debut at the Geneva Motor Show next week.   Like other recent unveilings, Morgan is keeping …

Morgan Plus 4 70th Anniversary Edition Brings A Golden Farewell To Outgoing Steelframe

Changes are happening at a rapid pace at Morgan Motor Company, with the bespoke British sports car maker saying farewell to its long running steel chassis. And yes we use that term quite literally, with the frame underpinning nearly all Morgan four wheeled models (Aero excluded) for over several decades. It also predates the Morgan Plus 4, which is currently celebrating its 70th anniversary this year. To help kill two birds with one stone, Morgan has unveiled an all new special edition that brings gold and platinum to the party.   Before we go any further, we might as well …

Morgan To End Production Of Traditional Ladder Frame, Focus On CX Based Underpinnings For Next Gen Models

When Morgan first introduced the simple steel ladder frame 83 years ago on the 4/4 and other models in the firm’s four wheeled range, the British sports car maker had no idea that these humble underpinnings would not only last so long, but also help build and cement the unique history and identity that has come to define countless Morgan Motor Company products. But following a recent shakeup in Morgan’s management structure, the company has revealed that it is ending production of this iconic underpinning next year in order to accelerate the introduction of its next generation CX platform. This …

2018 Morgan 3.7 Roadster – Gallery at Amelia Island Concours 2019

Who knew that gloss black would look as good on some old-school wire wheels as it does on modern five-spoke alloys! This Morgan Roadster at Amelia Concours was a sight to behold – even sitting among its more powerful or more three-wheeled siblings in the Morgan range. Calling this the Morgan Roadster might seem slightly silly: aren’t they all roadsters, you might ask? That is besides the point. This is the V6 Roadster whose 5-second sprint to 60-mph and 140-mph top speed are perhaps the ideal performance levels for most shoppers.  Fast and fun with a 3.7-liter motor making 280HP, …

Morgan Unveils All New Plus Six Roadster, Debuts New CX Platform

When we last checked in with our friends at Morgan, they were teasing the future, shelving the V8 powered Aero, and promising a turbocharged future for their future models. With the Geneva Motor Show now upon us, Morgan has formally unveiled the fruits of their labor, with the all new Morgan Plus Six roadster which brings a number of new technologies to the Morgan brand. The exterior styling of the Plus Six may not look like its hiding much at first glance, with the Plus Six embracing the distinctively retro elements that have become an iconic calling card for the …

First Drive – 2019 Polaris Slingshot SLR – By Carl Malek

When it comes to 3-wheel cycle cars (aka “autocycles,”) these special vehicles strike a welcome and particular chord in the heart of this author. For those that aren’t familiar with this type of vehicle, it is essentially the best of both worlds between a motorcycle and a car, with each one trying to do something different depending on how much car or motorcycle DNA is in it. Autocycles were invented before traditional four wheeled cars, and for a time were a sales phenomenon, especially in Europe. The Morgan 3-Wheeler is arguably the most iconic and historic of these particular vehicles, …

Morgan Shelves V8 Engine, Teases The Future In New Teaser Video [Video]

It is not too often that we hear from our friends at Morgan. The bespoke British sports car maker has won over our hearts with their unique and iconic interpretation of what a proper British sports car should be. However, even Morgan has to occasionally adapt to the ever changing marketplace, and it has done so by ditching the V8 engine for good, and preparing a bold surprise for a future generation of Morgan enthusiasts (this eager author included.) While the outgoing Plus 8 and Aero 8 models are the only two V8 Morgan models in the stable for right …

Morgan Confirms Plans For 50th Anniversary Plus 8 [Video]

With the venerable but aging 4.8 liter BMW sourced V8 reaching the end of the line with the current generation Aero 8, Morgan has revealed that it will be marking the engine’s departure in the Plus 8, with a limited run of 50th Anniversary models. While the Plus 8 has largely existed behind the spotlight shone on the forementioned Aero, this special roadster was actually the first V8 powered model that the niche British sports car maker ever produced. Originally revealed as a running prototype back in 1968, the car featured a Rover sourced V8, and sent power to the …

Morgan Announces End Of Aero 8 Production, Teases Limited Edition GT Model [Video]

  It’s not too often we get a new model offering from our friends at Morgan, but the bespoke British automaker has revealed that it is drawing the final curtain on its Aero 8 Roadster, but not before it unleashes one last special edition model for eager Morgan enthusiasts (this author included.) Dubbed the GT, this special model draws a lot of its inspiration from the company’s extensive experience in GT3 racing, and it certainly looks the part, thanks to a number of styling revisions. A key one is new bodywork that is designed to reduce drag, and increase downforce …

2011 Morgan AeroMax LHD Tall-Boy Special – RM London 2017

Just 100 of these AeroMaxes were produced for sale!  Seems a small quantity compared to the outsized reputation this machine has for its Top Gear and UK car-mag popularity.  The AeroMax is sure to be collectible thanks to its well-known teardrop hardtop design, split rear window and somewhat cross-eyed appearance from certain angles. This edition to be sold by RM Sotheby’s London sale this week is a delicious metallic blue over lipstick red inside.  It has less than 2000 miles from new and was originally sold to a member of the British royal family. A coupe special features of this …

British Upstart Eadon Green Aims For Morgan With Black Cuillin Coupe

These days, many startup automotive companies are created to build and craft a futuristic vehicle filled to the gills with technology aimed at disrupting the established order. However, the folks at Eadon Green are doing the opposite, and are determined to bring fierce competition to the benchmark leader of the modern classic genre, Morgan Motors. Unlike Morgan which has a pedigree dating back to the early 1900’s, you will not find Eadon Green in the dusty pages of a history book. But that is not stopping the London based company from bringing a car to the Geneva Motor Show. Dubbed …

Morgan EV 3 Wheeler 12

2017 Morgan EV3 – Electric 3 Wheeler Is Streamliner Heaven

Exciting first look full reveal from Morgan today ahead of the Goodwood Festival of Speed: the iconic Three-Wheeler in electric form! Dubbed the EV3, this prototype is on the way to production with a weight loss of nearly 200-pounds versus the gasoline model, plus a much sportier handling balance. Why such a change in dynamics versus the normal 3 Wheeler? That model’s highly unusual engine placement ahead of the front axle creates some quite extreme forces on the chassis in hard driving. That huge polar movement around bends is part of what makes the 3 Wheeler such a joy to …

2015 Morgan Plus 8 SPEEDSTER Headlines Geneva Show Stand 10

2015 Morgan Plus 8 SPEEDSTER Headlines Geneva Show Stand

  The Morgan Three-Wheeler and Aero 8 hoover up much enthusiast attention, but are they really the sweet-spot of the Morgan Motor Cars lineup? We would vote in favor of the Plus 8 Speedster — a stripped-down and chopped-windshield special based on the legendary best-seller. Running the latest 4.8-liter BMW V8 making 367-horsepower through an automatic or manual transmission, the Plus 8 roars to 60-mph in just 4.5-seconds. But those numbers do not really capture the drama of launching a Plus 8. With your rump almost right atop the back axle, the Plus 8 Speedster removes the bulky glass from …
