Comments Off on Meet Morgan’s New Experimental XP-1
We are proud to reveal the latest vehicle to break cover from Morgan’s engineering department, a new all-electric development project, XP-1.
XP-1 will act as the forerunner to all future electric Morgan sports cars, the experimental prototype will provide key information to Morgan’s engineers and designers as they embark on the development of the company’s first production electric models. The striking prototype is not intended for production but has been created to enhance thinking in several key areas including driving characterisation, powertrain development, in-house EV competence and training, and new feature ideation and testing. Following 12 months of design and build, XP-1 will now embark on a comprehensive testing programme over the next 18-24 months.

Comments Off on Bring The Colour To Morgan This Summer
With the introduction of Morgan Plus models in November 2022, we provided even more ability for customers to tailor their dream Morgan. For decades, we have famously – and proudly – allowed customers to order vehicles in any paint colour imaginable, over 40,000 in fact. And with 40 different interior trim and carpet options on Plus models, there is an almost endless combination of colourways and options available, ensuring every customer can create a true “one-off”.
In a quest for colour, we are inviting new customers to embrace their inner creative when specifying a new Plus Four or Plus Six this summer, with a full choice of paint and interior trim options included as standard.
Until September 30th, all Plus Four and Plus Six orders will benefit from a range of options at no additional cost. [...]
Comments Off on The 2023 Morgan Plus Four is a surprisingly modern mountaineer

It’s barely six degrees Fahrenheit at the summit of the Julier Pass. Visibility is zero, a full-blown whiteout. The edges of the road are practically invisible with the blizzard sending horizontal sheets across the windscreen. Snow ceaselessly accumulates onto the asphalt.
I’m the first person outside of the factory to be allowed behind the wheel of this updated 2023 Plus Four, and I briefly wonder whether perhaps we’re both a little too far out of our comfort zones. It may well be the most extreme test the roadster has ever been through. At the very least I suspect it is a situation in which precious few owners of Morgan’s latest Plus Four will find themselves.
This is, after all, a machine meant for pleasure [...]
Comments Off on DRONE FLIGHT GIVES NEW PERSPECTIVE OF THE MORGAN FACTORY
For the first time ever, a drone has taken flight around the historic home of Morgan at Pickersleigh Road. The 108-year-old factory – which welcomes around 30,000 visitors each year – is famed for being home to the production of the Morgan Plus Four and Plus Six, and will shortly be the site where the company’s all-new three-wheeled model will be produced.

Anyone who has been in this Morgan World for any length of time knows that its orbit will sweep in great circles but end up back where it started; again and again….and again. I bought my first Morgan in 1972 in Los Angeles, California. LA is a funny place in many respects. South Pasadena, where I lived at the time, is way out to the north east of the city and Long Beach is a bazillion miles to the south west; but miles in LA don’t seem to matter. A 50 mile drive to go to a movie was not uncommon so it seemed perfectly reasonable for me to drive from Pasadena to Long Beach for Morgan Plus Four Club of Southern California meetings. Unfortunately that first Morgan, and the several that followed it, were not paragons of reliability so I never really integrated with the club. But I did meet people; Morgan people, like [...]
Charles Morgan chose a Hollywood landmark for the intimate launch of his new Morgan Supersports. Stahl House, is a modernist styled house in the Hollywood Hills section of Los Angeles, California that was designed by Pierre Koenig. Photographic and anecdotal evidence suggests that the architect’s client, Buck Stahl, may have provided an inspiration for the overall cantilevered structure. Built in 1959 and part of the Case Study Houses program, the house is considered an iconic representation of modern architecture in Los Angeles during the 20th century. It was made famous by a photograph by Julius Shulman showing two women leisurely sitting at a corner of the house with a panoramic view of the city through the floor to ceiling glass walls at night. The house was used in numerous fashion shoots, ad campaigns and at least five films.
