The new product is called Midsummer and will be released in a small batch of fifty copies. The two-door is based on the Plus Six model, but it has an original design and a unique wooden belt around the cockpit. The Midsummer is powered by a BMW B58 inline-six with 340 horsepower and 550 Nm of torque. The gearbox is an eight-speed ZF automatic.

The joint project between Morgan Motor and Pininfarina, announced last year, has taken shape. It turned out to be the Midsummer barchette, named after the summer solstice and the hill of the same name on the border of Worcestershire and Herefordshire in England, from which you can see the historic Morgan factory on Pickersley Road in Malvern Link.

Externally, the barchetta resembles cars from the 30s and 40s of the last century. It will be released in 50 copies, each of which will cost the owner about 200 thousand pounds sterling, which corresponds to 23 million rubles.

The limited edition sports car is based on the regular Plus Six, which means it uses an aluminum chassis with a wooden frame, which required 400 individual strips of teak. The exterior panels took 250 hours to complete and the truth is, the Midsummer looks fantastic.

Notable features include forged vintage wheels, a grille with additional slots to improve air flow, and piano key-shaped vents at the top edge of the hood. However, the most interesting thing about the barchette is the wooden structure that surrounds the cockpit.

The interior features new analogue instruments, a differently shaped steering wheel and a Sennheiser audio system. According to Morgan, the Midsummer weighs around a ton, so you can expect excellent dynamics and handling from it. Fortunately, for active driving there are adjustable Nitron shock absorbers.

The engine is standard, from Plus Six. This is a straight-six BMW B58 with 340 horsepower and 550 Nm of torque, mated to an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission. The Midsummer’s 0-60 mph takes about four seconds. The maximum speed exceeds 260 kilometers per hour.
