“In a Morgan, one doesn’t simply move, one travels. One doesn’t simply drive, one takes command,” Pierre Henri Mahul, importer of the car to France.
American fashion designer Ralph Lauren started his career in a cream-colored 1961 Morgan 4/4. Impressed by its elegance, he still owns one today as part of his collection. This model, a unique classic full of charm, embodies the quintessence of English craftsmanship. An icon of the English automobile industry created in 1909, the Morgan comprises a wooden structure with metal plates attached.
This handcrafted design has remained unchanged since the 1930s. To fully appreciate the Morgan experience, it must be driven with the top down. Proud owners of this model would sooner pop open an umbrella when the car is stationary than put the top up. Ralph Lauren is one prime example, once known to say that “real Morgan owners don’t drive with the top up”.
