The Morgan Motor Company has recently announced a Le Mans-inspired Plus Four, the Morgan Plus Four LM62.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • How many Plus Four LM62s will Morgan produce?

    According to Morgan, only 62 units of the Plus Four LM62 will be made.
  • When did the Plus Four LM62 make its debut?

    The Morgan Plus Four LM62 debuted on January 16 at the Bicester Heritage Sunday Scramble in Oxfordshire, UK.
  • The family-owned English motor car company has released a short clip showcasing the Morgan Plus Four LM62 on their official YouTube channel. You can check it out here.

    According to the Morgan Motor Company, the Morgan Plus Four LM62 was highly influenced by the 24 Hours of Le Mans 2.0-liter class-winning Plus 4 SuperSport driven by Christopher Lawrence and Richard Shepherd-Baron in 1962.

    The road-legal TOK 258 (its registered name) braved the 30th Grand Prix of Endurance and completed over 2,255 miles at an average speed of more than 93mph before it took the checkered flag and dominated the medium engine category.

    The limited-edition Morgan Plus Four LM62 harks back to this rare win.

    “The 1962 Le Mans class-winning Morgan Plus 4 holds a special place in the hearts of Morgan enthusiasts, employees, and owners around the world. It marked one of Morgan’s greatest motorsport achievements, covering more than 2,200 miles at an average running speed of almost 94mph, and triumphing — like David vs Goliath — over our bigger and better-funded rivals of the time,” explained Morgan Motor Company Chairman and CEO Steve Morris.

    “With the Morgan Plus Four LM62, we pay homage to this famous vehicle and an incredible moment in time, 60 years on. Limited to just 62 individually numbered examples, the bespoke touches and enhanced level of standard specification make these cars an enticing proposition for customers wanting a piece of Morgan history,” Morris added.

    Like the winning car, the Morgan Plus Four LM62 can be had in Morgan Jet Green (or Morgan Tertre Rouge) and fitted with a Heritage White hardtop. The Morgan Motor Company also offers a bespoke graphics package that adds roundels with TOK 258’s number “29,” an LM62 rear badge, silver-painted wire wheels, Le Mans-style fuel filler cap, domed rear panel, and an active sports exhaust with black tailpipes.

    In addition, the Morgan Motor Company also offers options for two-eared wheel spinners and a Moto-Lita steering wheel.

    To pay homage to the 1962 Le Mans car, the Morgan Plus Four LM62 comes with LM62 laser-engraved door pulls, perforated leather seats with embroidered headrests, satin lacquer rubber mats, as well as a Tawny wood center-tunnel top and dashboard.

    Each car will have a numbered plaque showing its place in the limited 62-car production.

    The Morgan Plus Four LM62 debuted on January 16  at the Bicester Heritage Sunday Scramble in Oxfordshire, UK. It is now available in Morgan dealers globally, in left- or right-hand drive, and with the choice of manual or automatic transmission.

    Prices may vary depending on the market, but in the UK, it has a sticker price of £78,995 (around P5.5 million).
