It’s definitely a trend of the last few years to take a road car and set it up for off-road adventure. People have been doing that for decades, of course, but the idea of “safari-ing” a vehicle has certainly gained in popularity as of late. Even automakers are taking this approach at the factory level. You have crossovers getting off-road-esque treatment be it just at a styling level or with actual upgraded equipment. Even Morgan is getting in on the fun. And the British sports-car maker is doing so with a machine called the Plus Four CX-T.
In the video above, Henry Catchpole talks to a rep from Morgan and the pair goes over all the interesting details on the thing. Catchpole also gets to fling the CX-T around some trails in Wales. What I see in all this is a Morgan that appears up for a whole lot of fun. In fact, it’s a blast on a road course as well. Especially considering you can likely get a whole lot more movement with all-terrain tires than with the grippy stuff and at lower speeds. Don’t go for lap times. Go for fun. That’s what this thing is all about.
And now I want to borrow one for some time, so I can hunt out a great camping spot in a car no one would expect to find at the end of a great trail.
