British countryside roads are the best driving roads for a Morgan. We always try to find the best driving roads in the UK to drive British Cars.

Having in mind that it is a toy car I'll save some money (I guess) and go for the old Plus 8.
Lovely car. I don’t think I’d be driving it that quickly around all those unfenced fluffy white sheep.
Need more cars like this
Gorgeous car! But the steering wheel and the gear selector don’t belong to the looks of the Morgan. Moto Lita steering wheel and manual transmission (or at least something more suited to the car’s style) are the way to go!
If A90 supras are in the low 10s with minor mods, imagine a chassis 400kg lighter! I'm not saying I'd build a Morgan drag car, but….
Like louis theroux bummed richard hammond
There is no substitute for true British motoring-the sounds, the smells, the feel.
I miss the V8 sound!!!!!! The rest is 🔝🔝🔝
More Turbocharged V6's please
This is one of my dream cars! The charm and pantomime is second to none.
There are different models with different shifters , what I like about Morgan is their GT model and some mew one off models. If you guy have time ,please take a tour of their factory , it was an amazing experience for me .
I wish I could buy a Morgan, but I live in the U.S.A. and the American cars made here are rumbish! Plus President Creepy Sleepy Lieing Joe Biden and the Socialist Demonrats are taxing us to bankrupcy! I can barely aford a 2019 Subaru Impreza. I miss the classic design of the wings, bonnet, boot and the cockpit of a Morgan.
I'd also get the gear selector molded and redesigned into a full crystal aesthetic. Might be able to just rip the black out of the original.
The seats would be replaced immediately.
The steering wheel and trim replaced with some more basic and sensible. Like a wooden steering wheel from a old Ferrari or Momo.
I really like this car but holy crap that steering wheel does not fit with the exterior. That'd be the first thing I'd rip out.
He sounds depressed af on voice over.
BMW is lazy NOT to give a more retro steering wheel, gear knob and rims. 1 word: sucks
The idea is excellent. Execution not so much. Needed a retro internal look.
No abs, no esp, no esc, no another ridiclous acronym in terms of driver's assistants … = Perfect machine <3
NA version with a stick shift, and it would be the perfect Morgan…
Ladies and gentlemen
A handcraft BMW with class who damnds you wear leathers before hopping in
why the interior isn’t dark brown? it would match well with the moonstone color
This is one of my dream cars. It's so unpratical that I can see that will be hard to enjoy it. But it is a beauty.
Basically an extra $60K because it looks cool over what its worth.
We want an electric morgan
Why it doesn’t have roll bars ?
I Iive near here and recently applied for a new job just so this road would be my commute.
Beautiful car! (I agree with others that the gear selector is a dissonant design element.)
If an 18 wheeler can have an automatic so can a Morgan! Its evolution! At my age i welcome automatic transmissions!
Bring back the Plus 8.
Though it was Richard Hammond
Morgan should partner with Ford and use the EcoBoost V6s. They make 375 hp, 450 hp, and over 600 hp.
Automatic fitting for an old school car isn’t necessarily a bad thing but the way they did it here just doesn’t look right it’s looks so….forced in I guess is the word.
What road in Wales were you on ?
Don't even know abou the car but whole time amazed by the views
Speaking as a BMW Z4 M40i owner, the engine makes sense (as it's a brilliant engine) but the gearbox does not. It needs a manual box. That gear shift looks fine in my car but plain silly in this one.
As you said in your later vid about the new Plus Four: it has all the power you need and a manual gear box with a stick you don't have to be ashamed of.
Any wonder we can all hear the death- knell with these companies? ..And no one even tried to make a shifter; even in plastic?
