Road and Track reported on 7th March that "after 110 years of family ownership, Morgan is being purchased by an Italian investment firm". For many classic car enthusiasts this will be sad news and unexpected too.

It's been a busy time at Morgan over the last few years with 110th anniversary, a new platform (Morgan CX chassis), a new Plus Six built on it and with a new drive train from BMW. But then news the family owned will stop being family-owned in April 2019 as an Italian investment firm steps in as a major shareholder. Sadly like its naturally aspirated V8s, Morgan's British ownership is a thing of the past!
