Why The New Morgan Super 3 Is The Epitome Of Old-School Motoring

Why The New Morgan Super 3 Is The Epitome Of Old-School Motoring

Here are six reasons why the 2022 Morgan Super 3 is an unadulterated, old-school, thrilling machine, despite a hint of modernity

The 2022 Morgan Super 3 is the British carmaker’s latest model. It’s a successor to the even more old-school, Morgan 3-wheeler, which in turn harkens back to the 1932 Morgan F Series 3-wheeler. While the Morgan 3-wheeler is rightfully described (by Morgan) as a rebellion against sanitized, modern motoring, the Super 3 scores a degree of modernism, lacking in its forbearers. That said, there are still plenty of aspects about the Super 3 that make it the epitome of old-school motoring, and here’s what they are.

2022 Morgan Super 3

Morgan’s new three-wheel model gets a hint of modernism while still keeping it old-school

Morgan is one of the very few carmakers that still does things old-school. That said, even Morgan has realized it has to move with the times. With this in mind, how do you make a contemporary vehicle while still adhering to tradition? Somehow, the old British automotive company has managed to pull it off, and this endeavor resulted in the 2022 Morgan Super 3.

Morgan Goes Bespoke with Limited Edition Plus Six and 3 Wheeler

Only five built, all shipped to the Netherlands

Morgan may still build cars that look like they were designed in the 1930s, but they’re actually as modern as they get under the shell. The British company just redesigned the Plus Six and Plus Four on brand-new aluminum platforms and it’s now showcasing its ability to deliver bespoke cars with a pair of limited-edition models based on the Plus Six and 3 Wheeler. They’re called LE60 and celebrate 60 years of Morgan’s partnership with Dutch dealership Louwman Exclusive.

2019 Morgan Plus Six Comes with Supra Power, It’s Quicker than the Toyota

New aluminum platform and engine, the same vintage design

Having just discontinued the Plus 8 and Aero models, Morgan introduced a brand-new vehicle at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. It’s called the Plus Six and it’s the company’s first brand-new car since 2000. As the name suggests, it features a six-cylinder engine, also borrowed from BMW, but it rides on a new platform too.

Morgan May Have Purchased the Blue Prints and Tooling for the Aston Martin Vanquish

Aston Martin announced that it was selling the design and tooling for its Vanquish model, but it didn’t specify who it was sold to for £20-million or around $26-million. Now, a new report indicates that the buyer was, in fact, low volume car manufacturer Morgan. Morgan has since announced new models. The math seems pretty simple here, right?

Morgan Plans to Inch 20 Years Into the Future With a New High-Performance Sports Car

Morgan Plans to Inch 20 Years Into the Future With a New High-Performance Sports Car

A new car from Morgan, here’s something you barely ever hear

Morgan, the family-owned British car manufacturer that was one of the last in the world to rely on wood for its body structure, announces a new flagship sports car will arrive by the mid-2020s in both coupe and roadster forms.

Since 1935, when Morgan released their first four-wheeled car, the 4-4, Morgan designs have strongly relied on the style of that era. Now, with a new sports car in the making, Morgan announced they too have moved on with the times - sort of - and the new design language will be based on the shapes of the 1960s.

The new and so far unnamed car will feature the same front engine rear-wheel-drive layout bolted to a versatile new box-section chassis that will find its way into a number of Morgan products over the next few years.

2018 Morgan Plus 8 50th Anniversary Edition

2018 Morgan Plus 8 50th Anniversary Edition

50 examples built to celebrate Morgan’s most iconic model’s 50 years

First introduced in 1968, the Morgan Plus 8 remained in production for 36 years until 2004, becoming one of the industry’s longest surviving nameplate. The roadster was revived in 2012 with minor updates and soldiered on for a few more years. Come 2018 and Morgan is putting an end to the Plus 8 model for good with the 50th Anniversary Edition. The limited-run Plus 8 obviously celebrates 50 years since the model was launched, but it also pays tribute to the car’s early motorsport days.

Unveiled at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, the 50th Anniversary Edition also marks the end of the line for Morgan’s 4.8-liter V-8 engine. Borrowed from BMW in 2008, this unit remained in production at the company’s British facility a full seven years after the Germans stopped using it in models like the 5 Series, 6 Series, 7 Series, and X5. Morgan has yet to announce a replacement for the Plus 8, but a new model is probably under development. The body style will live on though through the 4/4, Plus 4, and Roadster versions, which use four-cylinder and V-6 engines.

Morgan's Electric 3-Wheeler to Go into Production in 2018

Morgan’s Electric 3-Wheeler to Go into Production in 2018

The EV3 gets more power and better acceleration in production form

Remember the three-wheeled electric car that Morgan unveiled in 2015 as a prototype and then as a production-ready model at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show? I’m talking about the EV3, an electric version of the famous 3-Wheeler with a revised front fascia. Introduced with full production plans in mind, the EV3 never made it past the limited-edition Selfridges Edition model, but this will change in 2018 according to recent reports.

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 EV3

2016 Morgan EV3

Morgan’s iconic 3-Wheeler goes electric

Morgan Motor Company is a unique figure in today’s automotive industry. Still a family-owned manufacturer after more than a decade in the business, Morgan continues to build vehicles based on 1920s and 1930s designs, most of them on hand-made wood frames. Some would call their vehicles dated and too old-fashioned, but Morgan has developed a cult following in Europe and sales are strong, despite the expensive price tags. Come 2016, and Morgan takes a new step into the future with the EV3, an all-electric version of the iconic 3-Wheeler.

Unveiled at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, the EV3 is Morgan’s first-ever electric vehicle and the first 3-Wheeler to receive a significant makeover since its revival in 2011. Not just a drivetrain swap, the EV3 gained a redesigned body and a new interior with a more modern instrument cluster.

A final pre-production prototype as of this writing, the Morgan EV3 will go into production in the fourth quarter of 2016, with the first examples likely to hit showrooms by the end of the year. Along with the EV3, Morgan also announced that it will develop more EV and hybrid vehicles in the future with funding from the British government. Until that happens, let’s have a closer look at the 3-Wheeler’s battery-powered brother.

Morgan Plans To Build Hybrid And Electric Models From 2019

Morgan Plans To Build Hybrid And Electric Models From 2019

British manufacturer of retro-inspired cars is jumping in on the hybrid and EV bandwagon in an attempt to keep up with the times

Add Morgan to the growing list of automakers who are gearing up for a future model lineup that includes hybrid and electric vehicles. The British automaker has announced its intention to develop a series of hybrid and EV models that it plans to launch by 2019. While it’s not as big of a company as some of the giants in the business, Morgan is still making that leap, thanks in large part to securing funding from the UK’s Advanced Propulsion Centre.

The company is also tapping into its partnerships with Delta Motorsport and Potenza Technology to invest £6 million ($8.5 million) in the development of new technologies, including hybrid and EV powertrains.

Morgan managing director Steve Morris told Autocar that the company has already invested time and money to get to this point, specifically touching on the research and development of new propulsion technologies that it has been doing for close to a decade now.

While it’s certainly hard to envision Morgan becoming as big in hybrids and EVs as the Toyotas and BMWs of the world, the company knows what its targets are and is sticking to it, including appealing to its key markets and attracting new customers.

Only time will tell if Morgan will be able to get where it needs to go, but there’s plenty of reason to believe that with the industry evolving into one that places a premium on delivering improved fuel economy and efficiency, there’s no time like today - and the future - for Morgan to go all-in on this endeavor.

XCAR Reviews Morgan Plus 8 Speedster: Video

XCAR Reviews Morgan Plus 8 Speedster: Video

Morgan is very much a unique car company: it makes cars you either love or hate. The folks at XCar are definitely in the love-it camp, and in this video, they not only say it, but also show it by taking a roofless model out for a test drive in January. That’s something you’re likely to do only if you really love a car. This enthusiasm is understandable though, especially given the fact that this is one of only 60 units of the Plus 8 Speedster that Morgan will build.

The car is special edition to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the company, which is still family owned after a century of operation. It manages this by having its niche more or less all to itself, building cars by hand that have the appearance of machines from the 1930s. It’s an odd approach, but it has clearly worked for them, and the cars have a definite charm to them. It might be strange to feel nostalgic for a time you probably weren’t alive for, but Morgan can make sure that you at least have fun doing it.

Morgan Teases New Model For Geneva

Morgan Teases New Model For Geneva

British manufacturer Morgan has announced it will launch a new model at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show in March. The single teaser image Morgan has released so far suggests that the new vehicle could be related to the Aero Coupe and Aero Supersport models. Both represent a significant departure from the company’s traditional styling, seen on models such as the 4/4 and the Plus 8, featuring integrated fenders and front bumper, as well as a heavily revised rear end. Judging by the preliminary teaser (shown above), the Brits are likely to showcase the new version of the Aero in Geneva.

With no actual clue as to the identity of the new sports car except for the Aero front end, I’m inclined to believe this Morgan won’t be an all-new car, but rather a slightly revised Aero with a new engine. The current Aero roster is motivated by

BMW

sourced, 4.8-liter V-8 engines the Germans stopped using in the X5 SUV and the 5 Series sedan five years ago. With these mills unlikely to pass future emissions standards, Morgan may have developed or borrowed a new engine for the Aero series.

2014 Morgan SP1

2014 Morgan SP1

If there’s one automaker that’s more exclusive than Ferrari, that would have to be Morgan Motor Company. Of course, the comparison is somewhat silly given the products that come from these companies, but Morgan is one of those manufacturers that builds less than 1,000 vehicles a year. What’s more, certain cars have a waiting list of up to six months. That’s because each car is assembled by hand, starting with the wooden frame and ending with the hand-formed, aluminum body. Sure, nothing’s cooler than a Ferrari badge nowadays, but Morgan’s old-fashioned ways are darn impressive in my book.One less-known fact about this British company is that it has a Special Projects Division.

This means Morgan can build bespoke, one-off vehicles just like the big boys from Ferrari, Lambo and Jaguar Land Rover. They don’t do it very often, but you’d better be prepared to stand in awe when such an automobile comes out of Malvern, England. If you fancy the classy yet modern looks of the Aero Coupe, then Morgan’s latest custom vehicle will leave you impressed. Meet the Morgan SP1, essentially the production version of the 2009 LifeCar concept!
