Summary


First arriving on UK roads in 2019, the Morgan Plus Six is a luxury roadster, and the first turbocharged model that the Morgan Motor Company has ever produced.

Described by Evo as a “British brute with BMW power”, the Plus Six derives its name from its 335hp six-cylinder engine that is also used by the likes of the BMW Z4 and Toyota GR Supra. This powerful unit, combined with the car’s lightweight frame, means that this flagship Morgan model can complete a 0-62mph sprint time in 4.2 seconds.

“This is a seriously rapid car”, Auto Express explains, adding that the Plus Six has “decent body control, light but accurate power steering, fine brakes and surprisingly excellent traction”.

That said, Evo says that the lack of driver aids means that you probably shouldn’t investigate its top speed of 165mph – “the rears can, and do, spin up easily if your throttle inputs lack subtlety”. It also asserts that the Plus Six has “truly hopeless” seats that are not “shapely enough to hold you in place during the car’s wild cornering antics.”

While a few reviewers point to the fact there are more practical sports car options for the Morgan’s steep price tag, many enthusiast-focused titles give the Plus Six glowing reviews due to its potential as a weekend track toy. As Top Gear concludes, “This is a genuinely modern Morgan; a wild and wonderful sports car that’s more liveable than any of its forebears.”

As of May 2022, the Morgan Plus Six holds an Expert Rating of 80%, based on ten reviews published by British media sources.

    “Although it remains expensive at £85k, it still feels every inch like a true Morgan but one with a better hood, a more comfortable cabin, sharper than ever dynamics and a rousing soundtrack to match. We love it, and so do its increasing band of customers.”

    “In a world in which so many cars look the same and have unrealistic and unusable performance, a Morgan makes more sense now than it ever did. And the new Plus Six is spectacularly good.”

    “If only, like a Seven, it had the option of more supportive seats. The standard items are truly hopeless, neither comfortable over distance nor shapely enough to hold you in place during the car’s wild cornering antics.”

    “The Morgan Plus Six is a rarity. It’s a new car from Worcestershire-based sports car manufacturer Morgan… and that doesn’t happen very often. It looks traditional enough to keep enthusiasts happy, but it’s also more comfortable and easier than ever to drive. We think it could be the best Morgan ever sold.”

    “The straight-six engine is also more characterful here than in other applications. It can’t match the metronomic throb of the old V8 at idle, or its furious top-end bellow, but there’s plenty of induction whoosh and snarl, peppered with pops from the twin tailpipes.”

    “The new Moran Plus Six is easily as fast as the outgoing Aero and Plus 8, outhandles and outrides them, and provides a great basis for big Morgans of the future. I’d like a bit less polish and a bit more of an edge to the steering, ride and gearbox response, but that’s all for the future. As it is the new car is fast, great looking – and even tall people can drive it.”
