Conceived in 1935, the introduction of the 4-4 signalled Morgan's move to 4 wheeled vehicles and the beginning of the next chapter in Morgan history. On the 15th of October 1936, the eagerly anticipated 4-4 debuted at the London Motor Show, held at Olympia. The modest 4-4 was a lightweight, affordable runabout that had been proven in local trials with great success across the UK. More recently known as the 4/4, this model has been a stalwart of the Morgan model range since its inception 80 years ago, and despite a short break during WWII, has been in continuous production ever since.
2016 marks 80 years of this automotive icon, a British success story and the longest running production car in the world. To celebrate, the Morgan Motor Company is proud to announce a limited edition 80th anniversary 4/4. Just 80 examples will be produced, each entirely hand crafted and featuring a multitude of new features inspired by the first cars.
Special features include solid wheels with brass centre locks, brass exterior accents and unique limited edition metal foil detailing. The 4/4 80th is offered in 3 colours; traditional Morgan BRG, Saxe Blue and Dark Red. A discreet side exit sports exhaust offers subtle performance improvements and a highly distinguished exhaust note. A quad bonnet strap, brass grille mesh, mohair roof and part tonneau cover further distinguish this model.
