Latest update -



SUPER 3
Production is just starting, first vehicles for the UK should be ready within a month, with the EU dealer vehicles the month following, and then the USA dealer vehicles. And so our USA network will have Super 3 demo & stock vehicles late summer / early fall this year. We will have a USA product launch this summer. Dealers can place orders with us for this model, and we have launched our US $ price list. Early dealer vehicles were chosen from a pre-set pallet of 12 colours, customers may chose their own colourways of course.



PLUS FOUR, PLUS SIX
We do not have NHTSA approval for these models and so have not, so far, been able to sell them in USA. In 2015 the FAST act (replica car bill) was passed, meaning that manufacturers of cars which closely resemble cars produced 25 years ago may sell up to 325 per year into USA under heavily reduced NHTSA rules. This bill became law about a month ago (6 years after being first announced). In the meantime we started a program to ensure that the BMW 2.0 & 3.0 litre engines that we fit are EPA compliant (we use the EU versions, not the USA ones), and this program should be complete within a couple of weeks, 3 months after initialising it. Once we have a valid EPA certificate, we can start the NHTSA approval process, which we do not see as too challenging thanks to the FAST act regulations. This should be completed quickly, probably early fall.
We will shortly start the process of deciding vehicle specs for the launch vehicles, and create a US $ price list.

The first car that will be available in USA is the PLUS FOUR AUTOMATIC. This is our most popular model in UK & EU, and we see it as being the same success in USA. It remains our intention to supply dealer cars at the end of this year, and customer cars starting very early next year. Under the FAST act we cannot obtain title until 1st Jan 23 (they will be our 24MY vehicles). The PLUS FOUR MANUAL, & PLUS SIX, will follow at some point next year.

All vehicles will feature new specifications (in Europe they will be our 23MY vehicles, 24MY in USA) which are not yet shown on our configurator as the vehicles have not yet been launched.

To answer some client specific questions-

All Morgan-approved dealers can offer full warranty aftercare.

The alloy wheel is lighter than the wire, I do not have the exact weight difference but can find it if it is important.

The sidescreens are constructed from polycarbonate lenses in an aluminium frame.

The chassis is made from a very high grade of aluminium that is extremely corrosion resistant.

Our cars have ABS (the Super 3 does not).

There is no header unit (radio), the audio system is a wifi enabled amp with speakers, driven through your smart phone (standard on Plus Six, optional on Plus Four). This may change for 23(24)MY vehicles.

The LCD display of the current range may change for the 23(24)MY vehicles.

Our vehicles are designed to be driven roof-down, and are offered with weather protection. Each hood is handmade, and so it is possible that some owners experience slightly different aerodynamic results than others. Overall, the 22MY hood is far better fitting than any previous Morgan hood.

Our 22MY upgrades included a new extensive sealing package, including hood rail to windscreen, which have dramatically improved air (& water) ingress.

All vehicles ordered with a spare wheel are supplied with a jack, and wheel brace. This is from 22MY onward.

We are planning on producing around 80-100 vehicles for USA toward the end of this year, however we are not immune to the global supply chain issues and this may, or may not, slip. At this moment you should receive your car early next year.

You are welcome to order as many, or as few, options from our USA model order form, when available. Pricing will not be the same as UK/EU pricing.

The 21MY vehicles were updated for 22MY, and will be again for the 23MY range (24MY USA). I can assure you that the vehicle that you receive will delight you and fully live up to your every expectation.

That all sounds like promising news! Can't wait to see the spec (and price) sheets.

Hi Propman, thank you for the update. Just like Colin ... can't wait to see the specs and (hopefully acceptable) prices. One more question: Will there be airbags or will we still be able to order with alternative steering wheels?

Keith, I think they are officially launched after the factory return from the summer shutdown, (your official dealer may get pre-launch specs ?)

I'd imagine that it should be a good bit less expensive as we do not pay VAT. The question I have, will BMW honor the powertrain warranty or would I need to ship it 700 miles to the nearest Morgan dealership for a powertrain repair?
