Morgan has become a popular tourist attraction since its 100th birthday in 2009, when a visitors’ centre for factory tours at its Malvern Link HQ opened. Limited to around 18 people, the opportunity to experience the rich heritage behind this old-school automotive producer is a must for petrolheads and car enthusiasts alike.
Two and four-seat three-wheelers were (and still are) the entry-level car types that Morgan produce. Even today, its 3 Wheeler is still being made and serves to represent a rebellion against motoring as we know it. Like other models in the range, it retains the adventurous character which goes into its bold engineering, inspired from the original 1920s vehicles. A tubular steel ‘space frame’ chassis, ash wood frame and aluminium body panels mean this remarkable motor weighs in at just over 500kg. The standout inclusion on the 3 Wheeler is an S&S V-Twin engine with 82bhp which spur it on to do 0-62mph in six seconds.
Morgan’s four-wheel cars followed its tri compatriots, coming over two decades later in 1935. The first, the 4/4, is still sold new today – the name of which represents both the number of wheels and cylinders in the engine.
Representing the ‘sweet spot’ in Morgan’s line-up is the Plus 4, which is the most popular choice of the bunch thanks to its advantage of being versatile. With space for two adults, a wider wheelbase than the 4/4 for greater stability and better suitability for longer journeys thanks to an engine with better fuel economy. A mohair hood pack is an additional option for the Plus 4, while sports seats as standard both make longer journeys possible in your new roadster possible.
