2016 Morgan 4/4 80th Anniversary Edition

Jump to Images

Perhaps the longest running production car model in the world, the 4/4 made its debut at the London Motor Show way back in 1936. Apart from a break during WWII, the car has been in manufacture ever since.

Features unique to the 80th Anniversary Edition are solid wheels with brass center locks, as well as brass exterior accents, brass grille mesh, and metal foil detailing. A side exit sports exhaust gives improved engine output and a fuller sound. A quad hood strap, mohair roof, and partial tonneau cover also set this car apart.

The car is available in British Racing Green, of course, as well as Saxe Blue and Dark Red.

(from Morgan Motor Company Press Release) 2016 Morgan 4/4 80th Anniversary Edition

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. The 4/4 has been a stalwart of the Morgan model range since its inception 80 years ago, and despite a 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 are proud to announce a limited edition 80th anniversary 4/4. Commissioned to celebrate the timeless design of the 4/4, just 80 examples will be produced, featuring unique styling inspired by the Series 1.

The 80th anniversary limited edition has been designed in the spirit of the original vehicles and benefits from a number of styling enhancements.

Extra Features

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.

Interior

Customers can personalise the interior of their 80th 4/4 from a carefully selected range of leather and box weave carpet colour combinations. Period Smiths dials with cream faces and brass embellishers are a jewel-like detail against the matte lacquered walnut dashboard. Extended leather door tops, leather door pull handles and an array of new trim details complete the look. A numbered plaque reminds each owner that their car is 1 of 80 of these highly detailed limited edition vehicles.

Like the standard 4/4, the 80th edition uses a 1.6 litre Ford Sigma engine and is available in right and left hand drive variants.
