Extracting maximum joy from the shortest day of the year in a Morgan
You would be forgiven for thinking that, from the outside at least, this Dove Grey Morgan may not look very different from its predecessors. Underneath, however, it is a completely reengineered British beast, bringing the marque bang up to date. Whether you’re blasting down the motorway or weaving through the narrow Cornish lanes, nothing is too much trouble for the lightweight and powerful Morgan.
Small manufacturers like Morgan offer us a breath of fresh air: they don’t conform to the new norm of driver assists and sensory isolation, and for us that makes it worth considering when you’re searching for your next driving thrill machine. Combining styling from the halcyon days of motoring and modern mechanics, it is the recipe for the ultimate practical classic. That’s why the Morgan is a modern-day hot-rod, and if you haven’t given these cars the time of day in the past, then they’re now certainly worth a look.
