When you combine stunning design with classic style and luxury, you end up with something truly remarkable – something like the Morgan Midsummer.

When you think of Morgan cars, you think of timeless looks, formidable performance, and – crucially – extreme luxury.

This car is set to be absolutely no different, but there’s an added bit of spice to this particular vehicle – because they’ve teamed up with Italian designer, Pininfarina.

The result of that collaboration is the Morgan Midsummer, and – come on – it looks absolutely incredible.

Seriously, this has to be one of the most beautiful cars ever designed, right?

The shape is unmistakably Morgan, with the automaker’s iconic wheel arches on clear show.

The Midsummer is inspired by a type of two-seater racing car called a ‘Barchetta’ and was produced using the two companies’ combined 200+ years of design experience.

While the car has an elegance and old-world charm to it, there’s a cutting edge to this beast, too.

Underneath the exquisite exterior beats the heart of a performance car, as Morgan’s turbocharged six-cylinder engine works alongside an eight-speed gearbox.

We haven’t got any numbers, but expect it to put down around 335bhp onto the tarmac, and reach 62mph in around four seconds.

The car should only weigh around 1,000kg – so that power should translate into motion pretty well.

For Pininfarina’s part, they’ve added touches to the outside of the car, as well as making a few changes to the long bonnet that improve the aerodynamics of the car.

Performance is something that Pininfarina takes very seriously, even when they’re creating cars inspired by Batman.

The design for the car – we’re told – harks back to Pininfarina’s design ideals from the 1930s and 1940s, which you can imagine tallies perfectly with Morgan’s overall aesthetic.

As collaborations go, it’s right up there with Maserati and David Beckham, or Ferrari and Ray-Ban.

If you’re salivating at the very thought of owning one of these cars – and have the bank balance to back it up – you’re unfortunately out of luck.

Only 50 of these cars will ever be made, and they’re already sold out – each of those models will be designed to the individual owner’s specifications.

Production will start later this year, the year that Morgan celebrates its 115th birthday, and will continue through 2025.

These cars take time, as Morgan prides itself on creating every single car by hand.

In their own words, they provide a ‘fitting antidote to mass-produced automotive manufacturing’.

When the end product looks as good as the Morgan Midsummer, it’s really hard to disagree with that statement.
