Morgan, the longest-surviving British-owned sportscar maker, will set a production record in 2012 with nigh-on 1600 cars assembled at the company’s Malvern works.
Production has been on a climb ever since Morgan went back to its roots last year and launched a modern day 3 Wheeler, powered by a punchy US-built vee-twin.
The 3 Wheeler will make up around half of production in 2012 - its first full-year - largely thanks to buoyant demand in the US.
Seeing workers lovingly assemble cars at Morgan is a thing of beauty. A visit to Morgan’s warren of brick-built assembly buildings at Malvern ought to be on every enthusiast’s wish-list.
