Conti Tyres on 70th Anniversary 4/4 Morgan

(Clacton, U.K./Tyres & Accessories) The legendary Morgan 4/4 launched in 1936 and still produced today is about to become even more special.

To celebrate its 70th anniversary, the Morgan Motor Co. has unveiled a limited edition Morgan 4/4, slightly smaller than its Plus 4 and Roadster siblings.

Just 142 “70th Anniversary” Morgan 4/4 cars will be built – two cars for every year of its production life since launch. Each car will be individually marked with the year it honours, finished in period style and fitted with Continental 165/80R15 CT22 tyres.

Matthew Parkins, sales director at Morgan, said: “We chose Continental because we have received high levels of customer satisfaction with their tyres. They combine value for money with a classic styling appropriate for our special edition cars.”

Tracey Hyem, passenger brand manager at Continental, added: “We have a long-standing relationship with Morgan and have been supplying original equipment tyres to them for over 20 years. Morgan’s choice of tyres for their limited edition 4/4’s is a testament to the diversity of Continental products and the range of cars we supply to at OE.”

The 142 special edition cars cost £27,950 including VAT, production runs from January to November 2006.
