I quite like the Copper colour but probably wouldn't pick it myself. I prefer solid colours and black alloys which to me give a retro look.

If I were buying a new Plus Four however, Black Alloys are £2000 extra over the standard alloys and metallic another £1000 and I'd spend the £3000 on other extras.

The other thing that stands out about the car is that in a photo it is virtually impossible to tell the car apart from a trad. Morgan must have decided that they cant improve on perfection and the only thing I dont like about the car is the front grille/spoiler which to me adds nothing. Give me a Wolf spolier any day!

It is something I have always found a bit strange about the front end of the trad. I think I would prefer to see the front mudguards come a little lower at the front and that there could be a continuous line from the bottom of the guards and under the radiator. It would make a more homogeneous front end instead of looking like a bunch of separate bits stuck on as an afterthought.

Not to the same extent as these race cars but you get the idea.

I agree with that, I think lowering the number plate in conjunction with overriders goes some way to improving the look.
I do like the Wolf version though.

The CX spoiler is to cover the gopping great lumps of chassis that support the radiator and wings, the chassis doesn't stop at the wheel centreline like on the trads

I agree, the promo Geneva 2019 version of Plus 6 had a more conventional and discreet valance grill as shown below, and spoilt IMHO by the mess offered in production, following through to the Plus Four.

I accept this almost full width grill may be needed on Plus 6 for extra cooling but why carry across to Plus Four?
