Vehicle Description
2023 Morgan Plus Six

Porsche GT Silver with Rich Tan leather interior, matching stitching and piping, leather wrapped seat backs, Matte finish Walnut Aluminium veneer, black carpets, Black Mohair Hood.

Addictive power, unrivalled exhilaration and a true drivers’ sports car, the Plus Six heralds a new era of performance and refinement for the Morgan range. The recognisable Morgan silhouette is underpinned by an all-new platform and industry leading powertrain technology. Every component has been refined or redesigned to create an all-new model.

Now fitted as standard to the ’23 MY Morgan Plus Six, this car features Electronic Stability Control, ABS and Driver and passenger airbags

Morgan is no stranger to BMW power plants having used BMW V8s for years, but the Plus Six is the first Morgan ever to use a turbocharged engine. In this application the straight six makes 335bhp and drives through the same eight-speed automatic transmission, which you can of course control via paddles behind the steering wheel.

Unlike its BMW-powered siblings the Plus Six has a dry weight of only 1075kg, (little more than a Mazda MX-5) and achieves the sprint to 62mph in just 4.2sec and on to a top speed of 165mph.

The Plus Six gets the new Morgan aluminium CX platform which is not only twice as stiff as the previous-generation chassis, it is slightly bigger and lightweight to boot.

It’s a Morgan, of course there’s wood! An ash frame sits atop the chassis, to which the aluminium exterior panel work is attached. The cabin is mostly traditional, with a set of analogue instruments and just the tiniest of electronic displays for vital information.

What’s it like to drive?

This thing’s quite an experience. You’ll want to go roof down, naturally. A glance around reveals relatively few BMW-familiar components – by and large it’s all Morgan and all quite wonderful to behold. The view over that long bonnet doesn’t hurt, and the feeling of sitting far back, somewhere over the rear axle, is one that defines the Plus Six experience.

Coming in at well over a third of a ton lighter than anything else using this engine, the Plus Six feels almost terrifyingly quick sometimes. A lack of traction control accentuates the excitement – the rears can, and do, spin up easily if your throttle inputs lack subtlety, but being exposed to the elements also contributes.

Not that it isn’t incredibly entertaining, though. The Plus Six makes you realise how coddled we are by more conceptually modern vehicles. Some of that coddling is Morgan’s Plus Six shows there’s still value in the kind of experience that asks a little more of the driver – more attention, more patience, and more skill.
