Latest Morgan 4 Seater news and reviews:
Henry Frederick Stanley built his own three-wheeled car in 1909, and a year later, Morgan Motor Company began producing its own cars. These odd looking cars had two wheels up front and one in the rear, and were produced up until 1952. But, long before then, Morgan developed its first four-wheel car, the 4/4. Aside from a short shut down during World War II, the 4/4 has been continually produced. Now 2016 marks the car’s 80th anniversary.
In 2011, Morgan released the Morgan 4/4 75th anniversary edition, so it is no surprise the Morgan showed up at the Geneva Auto Show this year with another special-edition 4/4 in tow, this time, to celebrate the car’s 80th anniversary. The car has changed a little over the years, but deep down it still has that old-school styling that was popular back in the 1930s. This styling might cause some, especially the younger generations, to dismiss it quickly, but the car deserves a lot more attention than that. It is, after all, the world’s longest running production model.
Morgan is slated to produce just 80 models of the 80th-anniversary edition, complete with special features designed specifically for the special edition model. There is, of course, some personalization available, but you’ll see that the special features included as part of this special edition are more than enough to pay homage to this long-running model. So, now that we’ve talked about the history of the model lets dive in and take a deeper look at the 80th-anniversary edition.

The Morgan 4/4 is a car that has been around longer than a lot of us have been alive. Unless you lived through the second World War, there’s a good chance that you still weren’t around when the 4/4 was first introduced back in 1936. 75 years later, Morgan is rolling out a special edition model of the 4/4, appropriately called the "75th Anniversary Edition."
With an overall weight of just 920 kg/2028 lbs, the Morgan 4/4 75th Anniversary Edition is as light as a feather, which bodes well for it considering that it’s powertrain is a relatively subdued 2.0-liter Ford Duratec engine that only produces 145 horsepower. It doesn’t sound like a record-setter, but when you combine the output with its lightweight, then you have a car that can hit 0-62 mph in just 7.2 seconds and boasts a top speed of 118 mph.
Aesthetically, the Morgan 4/4 75th Anniversary Edition comes in a choice of three color options - Black Sport, Sport Red, and Old Español White - with a matte black longitudinal stripe and a "4/4 75th" inscribed on it. Other unique details of the 4/4 75th Anniversary Edition include chrome mirrors, a set of black 15" spoke wheels, black leather seats, and wood details on the steering wheel and the dashboard courtesy of Moto Lita.
Ownership of the Morgan 4/4 75th Anniversary Edition will cost you £38,750, which is around $60,000 based on current exchange rates. For a car that’s clearly long in the tooth, special edition models come few and far in between. That’s what has made the Morgan 4/4 75th Anniversary Edition such a compelling model for numerous generations.
