Hi,

As promised, here are some (Super 3 focussed) images from my factory visit yesterday. Overall a very impressive factory tour - I would highly recommend it. In terms of Super 3 production, I was told that currently they are manufacturing "Press Vehicles" for media, test drives, etc. So no customer cars in production yet. They are still working on streamlining the production processes and also building a new paint booth (as this seems to be one of the bottlenecks of their production process). I can imagine that they have to re-think certain processes, as the four wheeled models are first almost completely built, then disassembled for painting and re-assembled. The Super 3 chassis is first painted, and then everything is bolted to it - so there is a high risk of damaging the paint - I guess this is the main reason why all the cars are carefully wrapped while in the production process.

Enjoy the pictures lurk

No problem, you're welcome! Took me over an hour to figure out how to post the pictures... Finally figured it out!

It is reassuring that they are aiming for a real quality build as with the CX cars . I cant help wondering how that tail shape will affect high speed handling (I know that is not what they are about) But as a Morgan owner with an interest in Aero -Hydrodynamics -yes I know how silly that sounds -I guess time will tell.

Thanks for sharing. Did they mention if they are still on track to deliver the first customer cars in August/September?

I did not specifically ask about the August / September timeline, but if the cars they build now are customer cars - which they denied. If the rose gold car mentioned by Viper above is a Dealer Demo car, they could still be more or less on track. The dealership here in Switzerland got the info that their Demo Car will be built in May and the Showroom/Stock car in June, with my car built then in September. To be realistic I guess it will be end of October by the time the car is shipped to Switzerland and registered, so the "summer driving season" will be more or less over anyway. Good things are worth waiting for, so I try to not drive myself crazy while waiting. crazy2

I'm curious to try this car.
I had the opportunity to sit in it at retromobile Paris, the driving position is strange.....

The picture of the Super 3 in front of the silver Porsche and red Morgan - what colour do you think that is? Alligator green or a special...? It's fabulous whatever it is!

The latest video of the Super 3 on Morgan's YouTube channel is the same car I think...

My guess would be that it is "Rhodium Silver" and yes I am quite sure it is the same car as in the just released YouTube video. Only visible difference is that the YT Video car had the "Flight Check" decals fitted as can be seen around 00:26 of the video.

I’ve not seen a silver car at all.

I’ve seen BMW Silverstone which is silver/blue

In the YT Video of Carfection, Catchpole mentions the color Rhodium Silver for his test car around the 1:20 mark. To me it looks very similar to the one in my photos. The silver in your avatar picture looks much brighter to me. Just my opinion.

You could be correct Henry does mention Rhodium, which is the colour mine was painted 4 years ago which at the time was a modern Jaguar ref (I don't know if large vehicle makers trademark paint colour names ?) and yes agreed, mine is much brighter
