The Morgan Motor Company celebrated its return to the race track at Le Mans with special commemorative editions of its classic Plus 8 and 4/4 sports cars.

Designed as a tribute to ‘TOK 258’ - the 1962 2.0-litre class-winning Morgan Plus Four – the Le Mans ’62 editions feature a host of unique features that bring the pioneering spirit of motor racing to life.

Commenting, Christopher Lawrence, who led the winning team in 1962 and is now Chief Development Engineer at Morgan, said “It’s really wonderful to see a classic Morgan racing car live again. Times have certainly changed, and the Aero 8 GTN car we have built for the DeWalt/Race Sports Salisbury 2002 Le Mans entry is a very different animal to the car I drove in 1962. But the pioneering spirit is very much alive and well at Morgan, and this Special Edition is a superb reminder of our roots.”

Only 80 individually-numbered Le Mans ’62 cars were hand-built at the famous Malvern Link factory, 40 each in Plus 8 and 4/4 versions. One thing has certainly changed - customers did not have a long wait to get behind the wheel of a piece of history. Following recent investments in manufacturing facilities, waiting time for all Morgan models was reduced to under 18 months.

Le Mans ’62 features include a specially-developed hard top, unique Morgan Racing Green finish, and racing trim throughout. The 4/4 version will cost £27,500 and the Plus 8 is priced at £39,900*.
