Just thought I would say Hello - I have just bought a +4 Supersports!

My first Morgan - started looking for a 3 wheeler and end up deciding to plump for this instead.

So may I ask for forgiveness in advance for any numpty questions I ask.

That looks lovely, although you do know that red ones are faster, dont you?

I particularly like the centrelock minilites, I would love some of those on mine

It looks lovely..... I'm thinking very seriously of buying a Morgan, despite my chums saying it'll make me look like a geography teacher!

Enjoying the experience?

I so very nearly ordered a Morgan .. it was beaten by a 981 Boxster, and it was very close

I am approaching full arousal about Morgans. Which will be moderately costly. smile

Not actually collected the car yet. So not had a breakdown, or a leaky roof or had something fall off when going round a corner so this is probably as good as it gets!

I only started looking at the weekend and I was originally looking for a 3 wheeler. I did a bit of research and thought the +4 SS seemed like a good idea instead. Then realised they were limited in number, saw this one and pulled the trigger.

My last two new cars have been a TVR and a Bristol - so let's hope my curse doesn't strike a 3rd time.

Ah ha, that's a familiar path to ownership.

You'll love the +4SS. I hear they go pretty well up the hill at Prescott too......

BTW, they like to live on a battery conditioner.

Griffdude is right; he persuaded me to buy one and I've had it a few months and so far done just on 2,000 miles. Mine's Iris Blue, chosen after much swithering between that and your RAF Blue. Definitely the 2 best colours of the 6 offered, though they do look good in red. The car is just magic. My 3rd Morgan and 2nd Plus 4, though I last had one 40 years ago. Griffdude said I must have another while I'm still young and I haven't looked back. Driving the SS now is just like coming home, though the car is actually so much better in so many ways. Now looking forward to having a bit more time to spend enjoying it. It will be out to play at Le Mans Classic.

Good luck with yours, and enjoy it!

Forgot to mention: just like you, I also switched from a 3 Wheeler; ordered one in March 2011, drove one at Goodwood FOS in July, loved it. Then saw the Plus 4 SS as the sensible, sober alternative. Well not quite, but reckoned I would get a whole lot more use out of it, and - for me - I think that was the right call.

Long drive home from Kent via Central London.

Really enjoyed it and it is certainly not like anything I have driven before.

Your car is gorgeous! Woof woof!

What's it like to drive? Could one use it as a daily driver? Tell us more!

Daily driver? maybe 10 years ago but I am a bit past it now.

it's a bit of an assault - great exhaust noise, wind rush every where, revs up to about 7.5K and gets decently quick in the upper range.

It's much better to drive with the roof off (even up the M1 yesterday) - it feels a bit enclosed with the roof off.

I use my 4/4 as a daily driver, its not a problem, although the supersport is a bit more hard core.

I really don't see why you couldn't use it as a daily driver. Fairly mundane mechanicals and the heater works, the late ones even have a heated windscreen. in the seventies I reckon you could have fitted a child on the shelf behind the seats as well. Definitely one in a carry cot.





I think it looks great with the roof off.
