The Morgan 4 seater has never before been available with a range topping engine: a 223 hp version, that gives this model the highest power to weight ratio of any open 4 seater on the market.
Two engine variants are on offer, a lusty 145 hp 2.0 in the +4 model, and the smooth and powerful 3.0 V6 Roadster 4 seater, both using versions of Ford’s Duratec engine delivering performance, economy and reliability.
Major styling revisions to the rear of the car, and improved rear seat packaging mean that this is no cramped 2+2. A new hood system gives greater head room, sufficient for full sized adults to sit comfortably – not that the little ones have been left out, as two ISO fix child seats can now be accommodated in the rear.
Rear seats can be folded forward to accommodate awkward loads. Sidescreens now have painted lower sections, and a complete front to back wooden centre console can be ordered as an option, linking nicely with the traditional ash framed body – a Morgan hallmark.
New too for 2006 are optional 18” stainless steel wire wheels.
For the UK market, prices start from £32,020 including VAT for the +4, rising to £39,130 for the powerful 3.0 version. Delivery is currently estimated at 6 – 12 months.
