Morgan Motor Company celebrates 70 years of Plus 4 production in 2020 with the debut of the Plus 4 70th Anniversary Edition. In addition to the milestone anniversary, the new car marks the end of Morgan’s use of a steel chassis for the Plus 4. The company is switching to aluminum chassis.
The British automaker said only 20 of the anniversary-edition cars will be produced. Each will wear Platinum Metallic paint and will feature various upgrades, including individually numbers plaques and specially embroidered headrests.
Engines also will be upgraded with Aero Racing engine controls and exhaust systems. Aero Racing is Morgan’s in-house tuning shop. Engines will produce 180 horsepower, 26 more than usual, with 0-100 km/h acceleration in less than 7 seconds, Morgan said.
The cars were priced — all already have been sold — at £60,995 ($79,470).
“As the design team creating the Plus 4 70th Anniversary Edition, our aim was to create a classic look, yet one that exudes the significance of what it represents,” said Jonathan Wells, head of Morgan design. “A mix of premium tones, high-quality materials, and exquisite details reflect the essence of the venerable Morgan Plus 4, and provide a fitting tribute to the steel chassis that has formed its backbone since it was launched in 1950.”
