Sharing Morgan’s show stand space with the new EV3, the 4/4 special will be built in a limited production run of 80 units, with each car costing £39,996.

Having been launched in 1936, Morgan says the 4/4 is the longest running production car in the world.

New features for the 80th anniversary models include solid wheels with brass centre locks, new brass exterior accents and graphics and bespoke paintwork. A side exit sports exhaust has also been fitted, while other details include a new bonnet strap and brass grille mesh.

Owners will be able to personalise the special 4/4 with new interior details, while each car also gets a numbered plaque. A 110bhp 1.6-litre Ford Sigma engine sits beneath the bonnet; the 4/4 can be had in either left or right-hand drive.
