Morgan Motor Company have announced the 2011 Morgan +4 SuperSports. Their press release says:
“The company have this to say:“At the 1950 Earl’s Court Motor Show Morgan introduced the 2088cc Plus 4 car to the world. This highly capable machine became the platform for annual innovative performance upgrades within the company. The perfect balance between engine size and weight was the catalyst for the birth of the Plus 4 Super Sports race ready car. This car introduced the infamous low-line aluminium body and a highly tuned mechanical specification taking Morgan to victory in their class at the 1962 Le Mans 24 hour race. This ground breaking success encouraged Peter Morgan to introduce many permanent additions to the Plus 4 which has continued to evolve to this day.
To celebrate this on the sixth decade of the Plus 4, Morgan Motor Company is proudly reintroducing the limited edition Plus 4 Super Sports.
Like it’s sixty year old predecessor, the 2011 Plus 4 Super Sports features a carefully considered specification including an array of performance upgrades, track inspired accessories and fashionable sixties themed aesthetics. This truly versatile car contains all the reliability of the modern Morgan but with a large injection of legendary 60s racing spirit.”

What we love about Morgan here at Beastie Folly is the combination of marketing and fresh design which has really breathed new life into the whole Morgan Brand. This is a marvellous refresh on presumably the car which has the longest production run of any car currently being made. At the same time we have a number of fresh new cars such as the up and coming Threewheeler which we reported on here and of course the Eva GT2.
