Yes I think that's right, I remember it being new in 2009 when I bought my Sport.

Heinz -- it is a different colour from Indigo but similar.

Looks lovely in Sport Blue Markus, more understated & retro than the metallics in my opinion.

70 km this afternoon in the new plus four.
I have the car since this morning.I am very pleased.
The exhausts noise is nice even without the
sport exhaust.As said before the seats are hard.
But i have a cover from Tempur and it s ok for me.
The quality of the mohair hood is less good than
the hood of my arp4.The mechanism of the hood
is hard.Needs some silicone grease or something like that.
The brake pedal and the accelerator pedal are very close.
I have to be careful not to brake and accelerate
In the same time.The car is very powerful
and you are over legal speed rapidly.It is an
huge improvement versus the classic chassis.
Roads where i could only drive at 40 km/h
Can be passed at 100 km/h.
It s not the classic car anymore but it is the
best Morgan i have owned.

I felt that way when changing from a Roadster to the Aero chassis Plus 8.

All you have to do now is enjoy!

Only covered around 1000 miles, so it’s a little early to fully explore the full performance and handling of the plus 6, but you can only be impressed by both. I have found the ZF gearbox intuitive, but tend to use the gear selectors prior to any spirited moves and I agree with Marcus “not to have a heavy right foot”!

My first and only other new build was a 06 Roadster and I have to admit the build quality has improved since then… The plus 6 cabin space is noticeably larger then the roadster, but the storage behind the seats is quite a bit smaller, but sufficient for a weekend bag. I was slightly apprehensive having seen so many negative comments around the seats, although you have a slightly more upright driving position, I found the seat comfortable and supportive. I have quite a large frame and i fit fine..

Only a two niggles, OS Fault light and petrol gauge inaccurate reading (its a Morgan). The car is back at the dealers for its 3 month check up so hopefully both will be sorted.

No “tour” pictures yet but one on the day of collection.

Very nice Mike. I hope you enjoy controlling that beast. I did a test drive & found the performance was incredible.

Mike, thats a nice colour combination. The black A-pillar is special isn't it? Typically it is in body colour. I hope you enjoy your toy.
Did you realize that the fuel gauge has a second function as an indicator of road inclines?

How do you like the heater so far?

Regards
Markus

Great to hear you are enjoying it, looks lovely.

p.s. The fuel gauge doubles as a G-force meter.
