Morgan Plus Four CX-T Adventure Sports Car

The Plus Four CX-T is Morgan like you’ve never seen it before. Designed for overland adventure and exploration, the Plus Four CX-T redefines the capabilities of a Morgan sports car. 

Morgan_Plus_Four_CX-T_ Morgan has a long history in trialling, these are the all-terrain endurance events which test man and machine to their very limits.  As early as 1911, Morgan sports cars were competing – and winning – in these competitions around the UK.

Trails is where the ‘T’ in its latest creation, the Plus Four CX-T, comes from. It’s this spirit of adventure in Morgan’s history, along with the voyages that have been undertaken by Morgan customers all over the world since, that have inspired the new model. The CX part of the name, you might’ve guessed, references the versatile CX-Generation bonded aluminium platform which underpins both Morgan’s Plus Four and Plus Six models.

“The project was unrestrained and born entirely from a desire to create an exciting British adventure vehicle,” says Jonathan Wells, Morgan’s Head of Design. “For me, it’s a complete package: historical integrity, legitimate capability, and a brand-new adventure-lead aesthetic.”

The extreme capability of the vehicle comes from a host of modifications and upgrades: EXE-TC coilover assemblies, Plus Six suspension arms, bespoke bushes, and off-road tyres give the vehicle a drive-over obstacle clearance of 230mm, and the durability to match, while a three-mode locking differential maximises traction on any surface type.

For travelling far from the beaten track, a rear equipment rack – which incorporates a protective exoskeleton – houses an array of stowage solutions. It can be further adapted to carry leisure equipment such as bikes and surf boards, to compliment the lifestyle activities of the owner. Less visible is a five-piece underbody protection system and full bespoke exhaust system with rear side-exit that improves the Plus Four CX-T’s all-important departure angle.

Tempted? Well, just eight vehicles will be built, all to be finished before the end of 2021 and priced at £170,000 plus local taxes. For that, you’ll be able to sit down with Morgan’s design team to tailor the specification to your exact desires.
