Just appeared on Ebay 2020 Morgan PLUS 6 AUTO 335 BHP 2998cc Silver Damaged Salvage.
The Morgan has only done 1000 miles.

It looks a big rebuild for someone brave enough.

Looks more like a Cat B than a Cat S!
And, yet another warning for prospective purchasers of the Plus 6. Is it now holding the record for the most written off car in it’s short history so far?

Yes one of our regulars on here phoned up for an insurance quote (from a leading Morgan agent) on a Plus Six and was refused cover point blank !!!

It's their crash history that has steered me across to the Plus Four route which to my mind has a sufficiency of power for my needs.

Ouch, all four corners suffering damage. A very brave project for half the asking price. Break for spares surely although probably only one good wheel.

What percentage of plus 6 cars so far made have accident damage I wonder ? Are they bought by unwitting punters or what ....

Glad I have a 370 bhp semi auto paddleshift !

That's exactly what I would be interested in, madmax. Is it a significant part of the fleet or do we only ever see sensational reports of unfortunate exceptions which cause a negative overall impression?

Hello,
looks like the Plus Six from member "MikefromPembroke", at least same spec. Hopefully I'm wrong, I dropped him a line to clarify.

Edit: See picture in thread: Have you driven your CX today, page two.

Regards
Markus

Yes it was my car....... Fortunately no one was seriously hurt, the car was damaged during a test drive following its first service. The replacement is due first few weeks of March.

Sorry to see that, looking forward to seeing your replacement soon.
Good to read you weren't driving or injured.
