Morgan 110 Works Edition

I recently had the opportunity to spend some time in the passenger seat of the Morgan Plus 4 110 Works Edition.

Scroll down to see some of the photographs from the evening, and to read a few words about the experience.

Perfect Fit

July in the UK is no guarantee of good weather, but fortunately when the time came to jump into the passenger seat of the Morgan Plus 4 the sun was out and the roof was down.

Despite being a tall chap at six foot four, getting into the Morgan and getting comfortable wasn't as challenging as I expected. Width wise, it helps to be friends with the person next you, but for leg room there are no complaints.

The next concern I had was whether I would be looking at the top of the windscreen rather than through it. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I sat low enough to look through the glass rather than over it.

Once settled, we set off in search of some scenery to take photographs, heading off towards Macclesfield and the edge of the Peak District.

Mother Nature

With the door windows removed (they detach rather than retract) and roof off, there is less buffeting in the cockpit than expected but being exposed can make holding a prolonged conversation a challenge at speed.

However, the open nature of the Morgan is fantastic to experience and to be honest, conversation is secondary to the aural experience when the engine is on song and the exhaust is popping and banging away like some demented 60's rally car.

Its safe to say that being in the Morgan instantly feels like an occasion, a moment to savour and something rather special, and on the right roads in the right weather, perfect for a summer evening jaunt.

Details

This particular car is the 110 Works Edition, built to celebrate 110 years of the Morgan Motor Company. Painted in sports green with a satin finish bonnet, with wheels matched to the body colour, it looks incredibly purposeful even when stationary.

I've always been a fan of cars without their (usually chrome) bumpers (Ferrari 250 SWB, Aston Martin DB4GT) and I think this look really suits the Morgan Plus 4 especially in this colour.

Other details that stand out include the embossed headrests and badges featuring the 110 moniker and the Union Flag, highlighting the Morgan Motor Company's heritage dating back to 1910 and its location in the heart of the Malvern, Worcestershire.

Thanks to Dave Rook () for taking me out for a spin, and to the Morgan Motor Company () for the opportunity to spend time with the car. Hopefully I'll be able to get my hands on one soon and see what the car is like from the drivers seat.
