Morgan will spend $8.6 million in cooperation with the British government to go hybrid and electric starting in 2019. That should keep prices down while giving the small carmaker a chance to double its production figures through new markets.
Every cause has an effect. Every article has a response. Wisconsin’s S&S Cycle, makers of some of America’s best engines, did not take kindly to what I said about baggers. They responded with an open invitation up to their ranch of V-Twin madcap shenanigans.
Limited to just 50 units, the AR Plus 4 comes with Cosworth power, an adjustable suspension, bigger brakes, a different axle ratio and a revised chassis. Plus an ash wood frame, of course.
Bahaaaaaah, the French. I mean, the English. Yes, the English have always been celebrated for making the world’s best Fourth Cars. There is an English manufacturer named Morgan, inspired almost exclusively by the desire to make “Fourth Cars.” They’re ash-framed and, like the best English cars, deliver vintage styling,…
Morgan is going to show a prototype EV three wheeler at Goodwood, with a view to releasing a production version in 2016.
Morgan built just sixty of these speedsters to celebrate its centenary, and they are all sold out by now. Driving experiences don’t get much purer than this.
[Remember that time Morgan built a car that was cross-eyed? It was called the Aero 8 and it was awesome. They gave it corrective surgery six years after its debut. Photo: Morgan]
Morgan's anniversary Aero comes with a 376 horsepower V8 from BMW, a revised chassis, a tasty mixture of wood and carbon fiber and a price that made it sell out until January in the first few hours of the Geneva Motor Show.
When Morgan introduced the Aero 8 in 2000, it was their first brand new car since 1948. Now, it's 2015, and they've made a new one. Oh, and it sounds like they kept the side pipes connected to a V8. Lovely.
Morgan's brilliant team takes wood, glue, aluminum, steel tubes, some paint and leather, adds BMW power to the mix and three weeks later, your iconic sports car is ready for some speed.
Orangey-copper paint. Big, shiny wheels. Eyes staring at you from beyond darkened spectacles. And wood, wood everywhere. The Morgan SP1 is the car of the future you wish you could imagine. But it's real.
Morgans are built the old way, the way cars should be, by craftsmen not on assembly lines, but in workshops. Which is why the latest special edition of the Morgan Plus 8 is so goddamn fantastic. Sure, it's got the latest in aluminum chassis development, but a belt holds down the hood. Enter the Morgan Plus 8 Speedster.
It’s not very often on a factory tour that your guide will say ‘And now we move on to the wood shop’, we could only be at the foot of the Malvern Hills, in the Morgan factory.
Morgan is a company that still builds cars the old fashioned way, out of wood. A lot of their cars are still somehow thoroughly modern, but that doesn't mean they're assembled in a factory. No, they're crafted, in a workshop. And this is what it looks like.
Morgan first built a 3 wheeled car back in 1909, in fact it was their very first car. In 2011 they decided to revisit the 3 wheeler once more, based on the classic shape of the 1937 Super Aero, but with more modern underpinnings.
The board of Morgan Cars has voted to reject Charles Morgan's appeal, leaving him officially ousted from the company his family started. In a new post on his personal blog, Morgan reveals his disappointment and his ambitious plans for the company's future.
You've just been forced out of your position at a company your family founded and has run for generations. You don't want to say anything you'll regret later but you're clearly steaming. What do you do? If you're Charles Morgan you just go nuclear using Twitter's retweet function to let others say what you think you…
The Morgan Motor Company, founded by H.F.S. Morgan way back in 1910 and famous for making very old-school British sports cars, announced Charles Morgan – the founder's grandson – is no longer part of the company.
