The you tube clip shows an attractive front guard -great, though I am not sure about more carrying capacity the plus six has about a third the luggage room of my old trad, though if you have the legs of a giraffe it's the Morgan for you. Always wondered why Alfas seemed to fit me, apparently I have that shape despite having no Italian heritage (that I know of)
This car has the makings of the winner that Mr Morris probably promised the new owners , all power to them I hope it sells well and brings new owners to the fold.

They did a great job in making it look like a Trad
and the specs make me wonder how much better it will ride than the monstrous Plus Six
congratulations to the team at Malvern

As a die-hard trad lover I must say it looks much better than expected. Good they don`t use the clunky Plus Six mudguards and resist to mount low-profile wheels. The steering wheel is realy ugly.

The bonned lowers too much towards the front.

But that is complaining at a high level. Put a Motolita in it and its a good looking car.

I`m starting to think these cars need switchable traction control and ABS as standard. I would be a lot happier with it on in the wet and off in the dry and when has not having ABS ever been a clever idea these days ?
I come from fast bikes and that world has embraced the fact that not everyone is Valentino Rossi for years now and the tech is amazingly advanced and it really does work .
Turn it off if you want to be a hero but keep it on for everyone else especially those new to the brand who are used to modern sports cars. it will allow most us of to explore the limits of the new chassis much more safely.

ugly steering wheel apart I think its spot on otherwise..

I was wondering why I seemed to be the only one thinking it was very expensive compared to the outgoing model.

Then I saw on FaceAche that it was designed to be more equivalent to the outgoing Roadster despite being called Plus Four...suddenly the price makes much more sense...

I would, like others, like to see a lower powered version sat nearer to the outgoing Plus 4 price, I think that would sell really well. Or, controversially, an electric version with a range of 200 to 250 miles, and recharge rate of 150 KWPH or more.

It's a masterpiece of design to look like that.

It should sell well to the Roadster demographic, and should be nimble with just four at the front.

Just now I wouldn't trade two trads I can mess with for one I can't but of course I'm a potential buyer.
