The Morgan Plus Four CX-T is a Morgan like you’ve never seen before, designed explicitly for overland adventure built by Morgan in partnership with Rally Raid UK, renowned creators of Dakar race vehicles.
Finished in Morgan Classic blue / Land Rover Graphite with Morgan Tan pebble grain leather interior.
The Morgan CX-T was inspired by Morgan’s well documented history of competing in all-terrain endurance trials. As early as 1911, Morgan sports cars were competing and winning in trials competitions, and this spirit of adventure has been key to shaping the Morgan brand ever since.
Morgan partnered with Rally Raid UK, renowned creator of Dakar race cars, to jointly design and engineer the Morgan CX-T. Just eight vehicles were built and supplied in full overland specification – all were built at Morgan’s factory in Malvern before undergoing the final preparation and setup at Rally Raid UK’s own workshop facilities.
The exterior of the CX-T is designed to maximise luggage and equipment carrying capacity, and provide the occupant protection necessary for extreme environments. Most prominently, the rear panel of the vehicle has been replaced with an equipment rack, with unique side body panels designed to be reminiscent of the classic four-seater Morgan.
The rack houses two ruggedised and waterproof Pelican luggage cases, a Zarges aluminium tool/storage box, two Rotopax 11-litre containers and two spare wheel/tyre assemblies. Additionally, for those who venture further off the beaten track, recovery equipment is mounted on the exterior of the car within easy reach when required.
The external protective exoskeleton can also be adapted to carry leisure equipment such as bikes and surf boards, to compliment the lifestyle activities of the owner, while the removable side screens can be mounted onto the roof of the vehicle, allowing them to be carried unobtrusively in case of a change in weather conditions.
The suspension has been designed to be expedition ready: tough and fit for purpose. Durability, and a drive-over obstacle clearance of 230mm, has been achieved using modified Plus Six wishbones and EXE-TC coilover assemblies born from off-road competition and calibrated to provide the ideal balance of compliance and durability. The combined suspension package is optimised to undertake journeys never before attempted in a Morgan sports car, while ensuring composure and comfort during any excursion into the back country.
A five-piece underbody protection system – comprising an engine guard, rear chassis guard, mid-section shield and rear undertray – helps to protect the chassis and important components from damage when driving in extreme conditions. The car is also fitted with a full bespoke exhaust system with rear side-exit that improves the departure angle and contributes to 230mm of ground clearance.
The CX-T uses a BMW X-Drive electronic differential with bespoke software, calibrated and tested specifically for the application. Switches inside the cabin allow a choice of three modes to be selected depending upon the driving conditions; each mode varies the degree of differential lock that is applied. Selecting ‘Road’, ‘All-Terrain’ and ‘All-Terrain – Extreme’. The two All-Terrain modes are designed to be used when tackling rough surfaces and low-traction conditions. The final drive ratio has also been shortened to account for the larger diameter tyres and suit all-terrain usage.
Inside the cabin of the Plus Four CX-T features have been added to improve occupant comfort and usability in remote environments. Cabin stowage has also been optimised with the addition of a removable map/document holder and insulated cool bag, both located in the passenger footwell. A custom-made first aid kit is mounted to the internal roll cage behind the seats. Just like the exterior equipment, every interior feature has been designed with accessibility and convenience in mind, whether this is for use in remote conditions or the leisure pursuits of the owner. The cabin is enclosed within a composite hard top which is unique to the CX-T and has been intricately engineered to fit between the internal and external roll cages.
This, one only of eight examples produced, is supplied left hand drive and is UK registered. 3387 Km from new.
