Order a new Morgan and you will have to wait a year for it to be delivered—but flipping through this lavishly designed book is sure to make the wait more bearable. Relating the Morgan story year-by-year, the first half of this book highlights landmark events and sporting successes from 1909 to the present.

The remainder of the book includes chapters on the development of Aero 8, Morgan's first totally new car since 1936; Morgan's heroic Le Mans campaigns; extraordinary stories about Morgan owners and their cars; Morgan's manufacturing today—modern technology alongside tradition craftsmanship; the relaunch of the Morgan 3 and what the future holds; and more.
