THE first Morgan Plus Six production cars have been presented to the company’s UK dealership network at a special event.
The official handover of the vehicles, which took place during the annual Morgan ‘Thrill On The Hill’ at the Prescott Speed Hill Climb in Gloucestershire, was the first delivery of the all-new Plus Six, which was announced at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
Eleven UK-based Morgan dealerships from as far north as Perth to as far south as Exeter were at the event to take delivery of their Plus Six demonstrators.
More than 150 Plus Six orders have now been placed, said Morgan, with customer deliveries expected to begin during the fourth quarter of 2019.
The Plus Six is an all-new car that celebrates Morgan’s distinctive design. It features a BMW three-litre in-line six-cylinder turbocharged engine, and is the first model to be built on the company’s new CX-Generation aluminium platform. Fewer than one per cent of its parts are shared with other Morgan models.
Steve Morris, Morgan Motor Company chief executive, said: ‘We are delighted to witness the first Plus Six models being handed over to our UK dealership network here at Thrill On The Hill 2019.
‘The sight of all 11 Plus Six First Editions is one to behold, and this handover marks the culmination of years of hard work from our small team based in Malvern Link.
‘I would like to thank all the staff at our factory, and our Morgan dealerships in the UK and around the world, for their continued efforts in bringing Plus Six to market. We look forward to a bright future for this fantastic new Morgan.’
