Intially offering Morgan Classic Plus 4, Plus 4 4-Seater

The first official Morgan showroom will be opening along EDSA on April 25th. You first read about the news of the arrival of one of Britain's oldest car brands here. We visited the dealership along the throughfare on the ground floor of Midway Court in Mandaluyong City along the EDSA automotive dealership row, which includes mainstream and premium automotive brands.

Morgan Plus 4 inside the showroom

Under its distributor White Knight Automobiles Inc. (which had a rather uncharacteristic launch late last year) the British brand aims to make a comeback this year with a quartet of cars inside the showroom. White Knight has initially brought in three sports white Morgan Classic Plus 4 2.0-liter cars, a sports white Morgan Classic Plus 4 4-Seater, and a sports blue Morgan 3-Wheeler.

The 3-Wheeler however, was instantly snapped up by an avid customer last February according to Marketing Head Ruth Tan.

Ford Duratec engine

The Plus 4 cars are powered by Ford Duratec 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engines rated at 145 PS and 187 Nm mated to a 5-speed Mazda manual gearbox. The Plus 4 measures at 4010mm long, 1720mm wide, and 1220mm tall weighing in at 877kg; the Plus 4 4-Seater is 100mm taller and weights 50kg more.

The 3-Wheeler is powered by an S&S 2.0-liter V twin engine mated to a 5 speed gearbox rated at 80 PS and 140 Nm, while weighing a mere 525kg.

In addition to the three models, the distributor is also offering the Aero on an indent order basis.

Pricing are as follows:

  • Morgan 3-Wheeler - Php3,500,000

  • Morgan Plus 4 2.0-liter - Php5,500,000

  • Morgan Plus 4 4-Seater 2.0-liter Php5,500,000
