The 2014 Morgan Plus 4 prides itself on its old school looks that frankly hasn’t changed all that much from the models in the 60’s. It’s quite charming, really, that Morgan continues to roll out a car that looks like this.

There are some redeeming qualities about Morgan and the Plus 4. A lot, actually. One thing we’ve come to appreciate about the company is its dedication to its classic sports car roots. Whereas other brands may have caved in to produce cars with designs that are up to the times, Morgan is sticking to its guns, determined to cater to that specific market that still appreciates an retro-looking burner when they see one.

And in a lot of ways, the Plus 4’s design actually makes it stand out these days. Thankfully, Morgan understands that just because the car looks like a `40’s hot rod, it doesn’t mean it should carry an engine from those times. It has 154 horsepower under that elongated bonnet, more than enough to enjoy the thrill of riding in style with the Plus 4.

2020 Morgan Plus Four

2020 Morgan Plus Four

The two-seat roadster sees its first redesign in 15 years

The 2020 Morgan Plus Four is a neo-retro roadster produced by British coachbuilder Morgan. The 2020 Plus Four replaces the old Plus 4, a roadster that Morgan produced without any updates from 2005 to 2020. While the nameplate carries over unchanged, the word "Four" replaces the numeral "4" for better differentiation between the two cars. The 2020 Plus Four is underpinned by the CX-Generation, bonded aluminum platform that Morgan debuted in the 2019 Plus Six. Although it looks virtually the same on the outside, the 2020 Plus Four features a more modern interior, while the old naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine was replaced with a turbo-four from BMW.

2020 Morgan Plus 4 70th Anniversary Edition

2020 Morgan Plus 4 70th Anniversary Edition

British automaker’s longstanding chassis will finally get a chance to rest

After more than 70 years of serving as the skeleton of Morgan models, the British automaker’s long-running steel chassis finally has an expiration date. But before that day comes, Morgan is giving the chassis a proper send-off by launching the Plus 4 70th Edition.

Yes, Morgan is celebrating the life and times of its steel chassis by taking the special edition route. The move isn’t uncommon these days among automakers — Bentley just announced the Mulsanne 6.75 Edition to celebrate the Mulsanne’s impending retirement — but Morgan’s decision to pay tribute to its decades-old steel chassis does have strong emotional ties to it, in part because of how long it was used by the automaker.

The Morgan Plus 4 70th Edition is limited to just 20 units with each unit priced at £60,995 or just a tick under $80,000 based on current exchange rates. Unfortunately for those who are looking to buy one, all 20 units are already accounted for.

Morgan Celebrates The 110th Anniversary: Learn About 6 Most Important Cars It Has Produced

Morgan Celebrates The 110th Anniversary: Learn About 6 Most Important Cars It Has Produced

Company That Specialized In Oddball Design

Morgan Motor Company celebrates the 110th anniversary next year. That’s more than a century, folks. I think this company definitely deserves massive attention as it is basically a love story written in pain, blood, and cars so amazing that every car enthusiast simply must fall in love with it.

It all started in 1909 when Henry Frederick Stanley Morgan installed a Peugeot engine in a tricycle he designed. Even then, in a time when small manufacturers produced a number of oddballs, his car was among the strangest with that small engine actually fitted at the front. It’s not surprising that Frederick maintained that eccentric style throughout the years. It all translated into the modern times, and now Morgan maintains that eccentric character despite only being a small family business.

Yet, with humble beginnings, but illustrious history, Morgan never really broke among the big ones. It stayed a niche producer, and after more than a century, it is among the best in its segment.

I will lead you through its history and present some of the most important cars Morgan ever endeavored to produce. Of course, we will start with the first one - the 1909 Morgan Runabout. The one with a Peugeot engine inside. Don’t worry, and I will also spark your imagination with the latest special edition cars the company has produced too.

Morgan Resumes Four-Wheeled Vehicle Sales In The U.S.

Morgan Resumes Four-Wheeled Vehicle Sales In The U.S.

The British marque returns after 10 years via Isis Imports

British automaker Morgan has announced that its four-wheel models will return to the United States after 10 years of absence through the company’s official U.S. arm, Isis Imports. Previously allowed to sell the 3-Wheeler model only, Isis will, from now on, be able to import the more traditional four-wheeled models thanks to a new law.

The British carmaker has yet to say which models will cross the pond to North America, but it’s likely that customers will have access to some of the vehicles from the Classic lineup, which includes the 4/4, Plus 4, Roadster, and Plus 8.

“While details remain to be finalized, the latest word from the Morgan Motor Company is that they anticipate opening the order books for NEW Morgan cars for the USA, possibly as soon as this summer,” Isis Imports said in a statement. “It is possible that production may begin on USA spec cars before the end of the year."

Isis Imports is already accepting deposits for four-wheeled Morgans, which are refundable "up until eight weeks prior to the build of your car after your specifications are finalized."

Pricing information is not available, but expect U.S.-spec Morgans to be a tad more expensive than their British-market counterparts. The most likely vehicle to head this way is the Roadster, which uses a 3.7-liter V-6 rated at 280 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. Tipping the scales at only 2,094 pounds, the Roadster hits 62 mph from a standing start in only 5.5 seconds and tops out at 140 mph.

2016 Morgan AR Plus 4

2016 Morgan AR Plus 4

They say Porsche’s been building the same car for decades. But next to Morgan, Porsche looks like Lexus 2050. So tightly has Morgan held to tradition that not only do its new cars look like they might have been designed in 1950, they’re built like it, too. As of right now, Morgan is the only car company in the world to build its frames out of wood. Yes, wood. As in, the stuff that used to be trees; in this case, ash trees harvested locally from the Malvern Hills. Now that’s tradition.

Of course, you’d expect a car company so deliberately steeped in the grandiose past to plan something big for a notable commemoration. This year marks the 65th birthday of the company’s most successful model, the Plus 4. While 65 years old is technically old enough to collect a pension in England, Morgan’s limited run of 50, Cosworth-powered AR Plus 4 proves that this dapper old chap isn’t quite ready for the retirement home yet.

2013 Morgan Plus 4 Super Sports Baby Doll VI

2013 Morgan Plus 4 Super Sports Baby Doll VI

Morgan has made a habit of releasing tribute models to its cars of yesteryear. Recently, it unveiled its latest tribute, the Plus 4 Super Sports Baby Doll VI.

This model pays homage to the Morgan Plus 4 Super Sports, which was first introduced back in 1961. The Baby Doll VI certainly lives up to its name, featuring a lightweight aluminum body, a material that was used on the original.

The Baby Doll VI comes in two color schemes: Kingfisher Blue with matching white stripes and Westminister Green with yellow stripes. The car rides on a set of 15-inch Roadster alloy wheels wrapped in Yokohama A048 tires.

Inside the Baby Doll VI, there’s Tillett carbon race seats with Aero Racing logos on the headrests. It also boasts a removable steering wheel, new dash, dials and switches, two aero screens, fire extinguisher, roll bar, battery cut-off switch, and a Baby Doll badge on the back panel.

Under its hood, the Baby Doll VI features an Omex engine that produces 260 horsepower and mates to a Mazda transmission. Morgan installed a slew of other components on this tribute model, including an oil cooler, sports exhaust system with a repackable silencer, gas adjustable dampers, a 4.10-to-1-ratio limited-slip axle, front and rear disc brakes, brake re-action bars, and a Panhard rod.

Morgan is also offering extra options for the Baby Doll VI. For an added cost, you get a high roll cage, a heater, spot lamps, full race-spec brake calipers, and a set of Silver Minilite 7j wheels with 3-eared spinners.

The Morgan Plus 4 Super Sports Baby Doll VI comes in at £55,000 (around $87,000 based on current exchange rates), including VAT with no warranty available on the engine, due to race tuning.
