A review of The Morgan Four Four 1800 Sports Car, with Photos and Videos, covering development, important features, and technical data of this the eleventh model in the Morgan range.
In this Article, I offer a nostalgic look the Morgan Four Four 1800, one of an elite group of classic cars, which was manufactured during the period 1993 to 2006.
In May 1993, there were further changes to the two seater four four 1600 in order to enhance its performance.
The Ford 1597 cc, CVH engine, fitted with electronic fuel ignition, was now replaced by a Ford 1796 cc, 4-cylinder, 16 valve, Zetec engine, linked to a Ford five speed gearbox.
Power was now increased from 100 to 114 bhp at 5750 rpm, which produced a top speed of 111 mph, and 0-60 in 7.8 secs.
Production of this variant ended in 2006.
Four seater four four’s were popular throughout the 1970’s, and into the 1980’s, when their popularity began to wane.
By the late 1980’s, it was only the UK market that maintained the tradition.
It was for this reason that only a two seater four four 1800 was introduced in 1993.
However, in 1999, in order to retest the market, a four seater four four 1800, with rear bucket seats, made its appearance.
Sadly, market research did not come up to expectations, and the model was discontinued two years alter.
The final variant of the four four 1800 was introduced in 2006, when the 1796 cc Zetec engine was replaced by an all aluminium Ford 1798 cc, 16 valve, Duratec unit, which developed 125 bhp.
Production of this variant ended in 2009.
The four four Series ended in 2009 with the introduction of a final variant powered by a Ford 1595 cc, 4-cylinder, Sigma engine, developing 110 bhp, and producing a top speed of 115 mph.
This model continues to this day.
This marked the end of the Morgan Four Four 1800
Perhaps this stroll down memory lane might have answered, or at least shed light on, a possible question:
Which Morgan Sports Car is Your Favourite?
However, should this question still remain unanswered, I will be reviewing, in some detail, in future articles within this website, the entire range of Morgan sports cars which were featured in the memorable era spanning 1911 to 1996.
I hope you join me in my nostalgic travels “down sports car memory lane”.
