Posted in Automotive and Exotic

The hand-built Britishness of Morgan is the whole appeal of their classic roadsters. With the launch of their all-new Plus Four CX-T, they’re taking that legacy off-road. But not with 4-wheel drive or a big suspension lift. They gave it some low-key coil overs, doubled the clearance to 9-inches & put a BMW 4-banger under the bonnet. It retains its rigid drive feel and very lightweight build, ensuring it will absolutely rip down those side-roads and dirt detours.
