One of the features of the Sport models was the limitation of choice, which was otherwise unusual for Morgan, but in order to make the price attractive. I had a 2010 Roadster Sport, the same principle and I remember from that time that there were only a few colours, like from 2008 on the 4/4. Sports.....black, white (which was a light and nice ivory) blue, grey, green, red. Later on Sports sand and teal (which I had). Later still, dove grey was added, a very nice colour. But with the appearance of dove grey, the Sports wave was almost over. It can be said that some of these Sport colours were a good orientation and simplification for customers who had sleepless nights deciding on a colour, at least the Sport colours offered a guide in the search.

Montegue, Very nice picture, the sport green comes into its own against the strong light blue house wall as a contrast.
BTW here could be a threaddrift or let's say an expansion. The last thread about the history, the diversity and the nuances of BRG was a few years ago.

The Sports spec was so right in many respects. They had the colours that suited the car best and the traditional vinyl hood. They did however delete the rear spare which was not everyones cup of tea - but it did look good though, giving the car a more sporty lightweight pared back look.

Belle is bare ali and Jaguar Brooklands Racing Green which is hard to photograph, the headlights are LEDs which I prefer. The Plus Four is in Jewish Racing Yellow I am told or is that Prosecco?
