The Morgan Plus 4 70th Anniversary Edition cars come with a host of exterior, interior, and convenience specification. Only twenty will be made.
The first Plus 4 models were built in 1950 and it remains one of the company’s best-selling models throughout seven decades of production.
Morgan recently announced that models built on its famous steel chassis will cease production in 2020, and the Plus 4 70th Anniversary Edition commemorates this important moment, too. For the first time ever, the chassis will be painted in gold, highlighting its significance in Morgan’s 111-year history.
Just 20 units of the Plus 4 70th Anniversary Edition cars are to be built. They feature an individually numbered plaque, marking them out for years to come as some of the last steel-chassis Plus 4 models. A specially embroidered headrest will further differentiate the edition.
The company’s in-house design team has created a unique specification that provides a timeless, sophisticated look, and nods to Morgan’s rich past.
A platinum anniversary is the celebration of 70 years and the Platinum Metallic paint complements the satin dark grey wire wheels, while a motorsport-inspired front valance and exterior black pack including a black stone guard, A-pillars and side screens form a purposeful aesthetic.
Inside the car, the finest grade of leather has been sourced exclusively for the special edition. There is a Ravenwood veneer dashboard, dark grey box weave carpets and a satin black Mota-Lita steering wheel.
Other specified extras include a leather-trimmed steering cowl and door handles, mohair hood cover, and side screen storage bags. Heated sports seats, footwell lighting and an exclusive commemorative Photographic Build Record are also included with each of the 20 cars.
To match the 70th Anniversary Edition’s dynamic look, its performance and distinctive engine note have been proportionally enhanced. The cars come with an engine map configured by Aero Racing, Morgan’s in-house motorsport specialists, raising power from 154 to 180hp and reducing its 0-62mph time to less than seven seconds. In addition, the cars are fitted with an Aero Racing sports exhaust, finished with a ceramic-black tail pipe, allowing the engine to truly sing.
The Plus 4 70th Anniversary Edition is priced at £60,995.00 OTR, and a deposit has been taken on every one of the 20 cars.
