Since 1936, when the iconic 4/4 sports car was introduced, Morgan Motor Company never really looked back in terms of fan following, for the sheer iconic status of the vehicle. It might not
have created as many waves as the Ferrari's and Lamborghini's from the Italians, and Bentley from Britain itself, but the loyal fans of the car still swear by it till date. So, to celebrate the 75 years of the particular model, Morgan has reintroduced it as a special 75th anniversary edition. Using the traditional frame, with some minor twitches and modern customizations, the 4/4 has come alive yet again for the niche vintage automobile lover.
Unlike the original 4/4, this version of the car comes with 3 primary options for external chassis coloring; old English white, sport red, and the sport black as seen here. There is also the additional matte black stripe, which will be bearing the ‘4/4 75th’ graphic to remind every one of the special series of the car. Other minor but aesthetic changes include the narrow 4/4 wings, Black stone guard, 9-stud windscreen with black PVC coated retractable hood. However, what reminded very much of the classic edition is the black painted 15-inch wired tires and the polish matched rounded door handles and rear view mirrors. Talking of the inside view, black leather upholstery all around, with the seats being of the perforated design. The carpeting done in black also retains the old world classic charm. The dashboard gives out the finer taste through the polished wooden rimming and the moto lita steering wheel.
Under the hood, the engine packs in quite the punch. There is a 1,999cc, 4-cylinder engine which takes this vehicle from 0-100 km/ph in just 7.2 seconds, meaning speed thrills are always on the offer no matter the old
world design. The top speed of the vehicle however, goes to 189 km/ph, so it’s still a thriller on the highway. As for pricing goes, be it would cost the buyer £38,750 ($59,697) each. Also, we had shown another icon in the form of the Morgan 3 wheeler reintroduction 2011, and the Superdry edition of the same car. Small but beautiful, indeed!
