Let see.... A design and chassis from 1930's but the wheel is modern design from 2014. That's kinda strange for me.

Its complicated to make new 21 century cars from wood.

They have been out of date for the last 40 years, But i do like tht they have been able to maintain there constant retro ness, But i wouldnt mind seeing a 21 century Morgan, Like what Chevrolet did with the Camaro and Dodge with the Challenger, You could say they did that, But not enuff. And i think they should use either Ford of Chevy motors instead of Bmw Motors, But then again everyone uses those engines, An MB engine may not bee too bad though.

I do think the styling is outdated.

08-35, Still old as shite, Or Olde English, You dont see many people here under say 60 driving a Morgan, They usually attract the "Olde Elegant" type, Good cars, and definetly British, Even though they use German Engines, But British cars using American engines i think is how it should be, There something about that combo thats, "Just Right. German ones arent bad at all, But id go with the other.

I also dont have a problem with Morgan keeping to the olde tradition, I kinda like that, But how long will it last?..

@BR2+: That car's Styling is really 1935ish.

Bmw more likely. But it would be nice if Morgan stopped thinking it was 1908, I love there Quintessentially British nature, Old school retro ish, Wood, Dark and damp, But its 2014, not 1908.

Hmmm, 4.8 liters, let me guess' the engine is from a Volvo XC90.
