Engine  1,595cc, straight-four Top speed  115 mph (185 km/h)


The 4/4, which means four wheels and four cylinders, employs the latest Sigma series engine from Ford, producing 125 bhp. At 1,157 lb (525 kg), the three-wheeler’s exemplary power to weight ratio  gives maximum power  from minimum revs. It is  built for driving pleasure.

CLASSICS  CARS OF THE FUTURE 4/4 The embodiment of Morgan tradition,  the 4/4 was first produced in 1936, and some say  it is the car with the word’s longest production run. Customers know precisely what to expect  from the car and a new model is always an instant classic. A wood-framed body with flowing mudguards and cutaway doors is mounted on a separate chassis, and Morgans with V8 engines can go very fast. However, for a more authentic period feel, the 4/4, with its 1,595 cc Ford engine, although still rapid, is a more leisurely proposition.
Morgan launched a production version with limited sales success, thanks to the tiller and single seat, but the car’s performance and toughness won praise, and when two-seater versions with steering wheels appeared, demand grew quickly. In fact,  his design template was widely copied, but rivals generally struggled to meet his cars’ standards. The Morgan’s reliability and verve, along with handling that was safer than other three-wheelers, made this little tricycle a popular competition car, and a performance version, the Grand Prix, was built. Soon, Morgans were familiar and successful sights on racetracks such as Brooklands, where they beat much bigger, more powerful cars.
