I'd love to know the fix for slow filling - it's the only negative of mine. It takes forever to fill. Seasons change whilst filling.



Contact Mark Evans at MMC, Parts / Service and don't let him say "they all do that Sir!' because they don't and he fixed mine.
I'm most surprised the fix hasn't been circulated to the dealers cos it's a real PITA of a problem.

Ditto the Coupe, it blew back more than a politician at in an LBC interview but after three attempts they did fix it. Now it just needs a slight lift once in a while during filling.


Just time to burn a little more petrol before dinner.

It does seem like a missed opportunity.

I recently watched a You Tube clip on the Connaught V10 Sports car from the early noughties. They only made one, but there are parts available to build a small number. The engine is a 2 Litre V10 and running on the bench it sounds glorious................................


Indeed: Morgan PR: "We're reintroducing the Aero line under our newly-acquired Bristol brand, perfectly blending Bristol's aviation heritage with Morgan's forward-looking luxury coupes." Would've allowed Morgan to prototype innovations and charge more for them.

... I saw that too - wasn't the Connaught also hybrid, which you'd have thought would make it particularly relevant now.

I suspect these nine will have been offered and sold to special customers of MMC long before the article appeared on their site. It's a PR job utilising old chassis and running gear circa 2018 from the sadly failed Bristol project.
We have a couple of priority customers on here that might elucidate in the fullness of time wink...
