The new model was first seen testing earlier this month, revealing a design that's a familiar adaptation of the 1930s-inspired look Morgans have carried for decades. This is set to evolve further with a new range-topping model in 2020. But there are substantial developments under the skin.
The new model, known internally as the Wide Body, will make use of an all-new, lighter bonded aluminium platform. The company also says the car will feature "a powertrain never before installed in a Morgan".
The Wide Body comes after half a century of the Malvern-based car maker fitting V8 engines to its cars. The final examples of the Aero 8 and Plus 8, fitted with BMW's N62 unit, will be kept for Morgan's heritage fleet.
It's thought that a downsized, forced-induction six-cylinder engine will feature in the upcoming flagship model, and this could also be the powertrain used by the Wide Body.
