The premium barchetta-style Midsummer is the product of Morgan and Pininfarina, two of the world's most popular and esteemed coachbuilders. It sports a Morgan Plus Six chassis and is limited to 50 units, all already sold out. The topless limited-run model reflects the era of the 1950s and is simply gorgeous in every aspect. The Italian design house has borrowed from the 1930s and 1940s designs with extended rear tails for this stunningly retro-looking car. It features a pair of elegant aero screens reminiscent of classic barchettas instead of the standard windshield. Morgon asserts that great care and attention to detail went into creating the limited edition model. Over 400 layers of carefully laminated, sustainably sourced teak are used in the two-seat car to construct sculptured wooden elements that embellish the cabin. Let's take a closer look at other details of this masterpiece.

Morgan Midsummer: More Design Highlights

Though the Midsummer's external bodywork is largely new, especially the lengthened tail and the significantly more sculpted front, the majority of its proportions are comparable to those of the Morgan Plus Six. According to the British sportscar manufacturer, each car's hand-formed aluminum panels have taken more than 250 hours to construct. Inside, the Midsummer exudes a distinct vibe with its new analogue gauges, which are handcrafted in the United Kingdom and painted in an off-white hue. The driver is faced with a digital screen that is connected to a steering wheel featuring a solid metal core. Along with new dashboard controls, the car also has a new Sennheiser audio system.

The Midsummer is expected to have the same 3.0-litre turbocharged six-cylinder engine as the Plus Six. The unit produces 330bhp, mated to a standard eight-speed gearbox that drives the rear wheels.
