BRITISH sports car maker Morgan is to produce a limited run of a special edition model to mark the 60 anniversary of its class win in the Le Mans 24 hours race.

Only 62 examples of the Plus Four LM62 will be made with prices starting from £78,995.

Based on the standard Morgan Plus Four it pays tribute to the Morgan Plus 4 SuperSports - known by its registration TOK 258 - which took victory in the 2.0-litre class of the gruelling endurance race six decades ago.

TOK 258 was finished in dark green, while a particular shade of red was popular on motorsport Morgan vehicles of the time, and these two colours are the finishes chosen for the Plus Four LM62.

A Heritage White hardtop - just like the one fitted to the famous race car - comes as standard, marking the first time this item has been available for the model.

There is also LM62 graphics pack, which includes roundels with the number ‘29' - as per TOK 258 - as well as an LM62 rear badge, silver-painted wire wheels, a Le Mans-style fuel filler cap and a domed rear panel.

The touches are complemented by driving spot lights, body-coloured windscreen pillars, a black splitter and cowl mesh, polished stoneguard, black mohair sidescreens, a sidescreen bag embroidered with the LM62 logo, and an active sports exhaust with black tailpipes.

Other anniversary touches are included on the interior including a LM62 metal plaque, displaying the car's unique build number from its run of 62.

Steve Morris, Morgan Motor Company chairman, said:"The 1962 Le Mans class-winning Morgan Plus 4 holds a special place in the hearts of Morgan enthusiasts, employees and owners around the world.

"It marked one of Morgan's greatest motorsport achievements, the car covering more than 2,200 miles at an average running speed of almost 94mph, and triumphing - like David vs Goliath - over our bigger, and better funded, rivals of the time."
