This is the new Morgan Plus 4 70th Anniversary Edition. As the same suggests, it celebrates the iconic British sports car’s seventh decade in continuous production, after its initial launch in October 1950. Just 20 examples of the celebratory model will be built, priced at £60,995 each – and all of them have already been reserved.

Keen Morgan anoraks will notice that this special edition Plus 4 is based on the outgoing model, rather than the recently launched BMW-powered evolution. The 20 cars will be the final Plus 4s built on Morgan’s traditional steel-frame chassis, before production moves over to the company’s all-new bonded aluminium underpinnings.

As such, it uses the previous car’s powertrain. Like the Plus 4s of the early 2000s, this special edition model is powered by Ford’s 2.0-litre four-cylinder Duratec engine. However, Morgan’s in-house tuning specialist, Aero Racing, has added a sports exhaust system and a new engine map – meaning power rises from 154bhp to 180bhp, while the Plus 4’s 0–62mph time falls from around eight seconds to “less than seven seconds.”

Each 70th Anniversary Edition will come with an extensive list of exclusive additions including a gold-painted chassis, platinum metallic paint, satin dark grey wire wheels, a motorsport-inspired front valance and an exterior styling pack that swaps the car’s A-pillars, sidescreens, stone guards and exhaust for black replacements.
