Morgan Cars is a British automotive firm founded in 1910, who are still producing around 1300 hand assembled cars each year. The mainstay of the company is their classic roadsters, coupes and sports cars that have a vintage appearance but are completely modern ‘under the skin’. This means that their exhausts produce minimal noise and they experience low fuel consumption and low C02 emissions. No more having to buy a lead additive for old cars. Not to mention a number of mod cons such as electrically heated window demisters, immobilisers and dashboards featuring electronic warning systems. Modern safety features include a seat belt warning light and buzzer, a brake failure warning light and collapsible steering column.
Range Rover Reborn
The iconic Range Rover from the 1970s has been given a new lease of life with the Range Rover Reborn series by Landrover, another UK car manufacturer.

Enthusiasts who wish to purchase are given information about suitable base vehicles and preferred chassis numbers. With this in mind, Landrover will undertake the restoration to preserve authenticity.
