Morgan adjusts pricing
Strengthening dollar squeezes Morgan pricing by up to $5471
6 Jun 2016
A FALTERING United Kingdom economy and more robust Australian dollar has enabled Morgan to reduce its local pricing across the Classic and 3 Wheeler ranges, with savings of up to $5471 in the case of its unorthodox 3 Wheeler.
Specification for the 2.0-litre V-twin three-wheeled model is unchanged with 60kW sent to the single rear wheel via a five-speed manual gearbox, leather interior, timber frame construction and aluminium body for a new price of $100,284 driveaway.
At the most affordable end of the range and the company's oldest nameplate, the 4/4 has been given an almost negligible price cut of $1 to $97,849 driveaway, as has the Classic range flagship Plus 8, which now costs $239,879.
Entry-level 4/4s get a Ford-sourced 1.6-litre engine with 82kW/131Nm and can accelerate from zero to 100km/h in 8.0 seconds, while the Plus 8 has a 270kW/490Nm V8 courtesy of BMW, with corresponding performance of 0-100km/h acceleration in 4.5s and a V-max of 'over' 250km/h.
Sitting above the 4/4 is the Plus 4, which has been treated to a $3158 reduction taking the price to $112,067. It gets a larger 2.0-litre Ford engine with 115kW/201Nm for a 0-100km/h dash of 7.3s and a 189km/h top speed.
Next up is the 3.7-litre Ford V6 powered Roadster, which has been reduced by $3391 to $150,224. It gets to 100km/h from static in 5.5 seconds and can hit a maximum speed of more than 225km/h.
The performance halo of the Morgan brand and mechanically unrelated Aero 8 has not been affected with a driveaway price of $299,845.
The British car-maker prides itself in offering a high level of personalisation and a wide range of optional extras, including novelties such a polished chrome adornments, leather quilting, an intercom system and even a pin-up girl graphic for the 3 Wheeler.
For the Classic range, customers can add wire wheels, Performance seats, a range of leather and wood choices, accessories such as luggage racks, leather luggage, wooden steering wheels and a photographic album of the model being built.
