The new Morgan Plus Four is the Roberts DAB radio or the pastel coloured, chrome handled Smeg fridge of the car sphere: olde worlde aesthetic on the outside, up to date technology underneath. And no, up to date isn t a typo. This is the second of many Morgans, following its big bro the Plus Six, to be based on a new bonded aluminium CX platform. Around 97 per cent of its components are new.Fitted with a new 2.0 litre, four cylinder turbocharged BMW engine, double wishbone suspension all round and a more commodious interior with such wizardry as automatic headlights, central locking, puddle lighting and a Bluetooth connection, this is nothing short of a revolution for the 110 year old company tucked away in the Malvern hills.

Then 12 year old me had a poster of it on his bedroom wall, and could recite the ridiculous numbers off the top of his head: 1,001 metric horsepower, 253mph, 16 cylinders, eight litres, four turbochargers. Astonishing, even by today s ludicrous standards.It all started in 1998, when legendary VW Group boss and engineer Ferdinand Pie ch went on a shopping spree. He wanted the Group to move upmarket, so in just that year he oversaw Audi s acquisition of Lamborghini and outbid BMW for Rolls Royce Motors. That particular deal got a bit messy in the end VW walked away with Bentley (Pie ch claimed that was all he d ever wanted anyway) and BMW got Rolls but that s a story for another day.

The car? An outwardly unassuming RX 7, one of a few hundred left on the road. But if you get a little closer, the side skirts and spoiler give it away. This is one of just a dozen RX 7 Elford Turbos left in existence.Kiwi owner Tim Bassett came upon the model in 2011, after a childhood misspent ogling rotary engined machines. When the mechanical engineer moved to the UK, he was astounded at just how cheap they were and knew he had to have one. Even better, he managed to find a 100,000 mile Elford Turbo a Bournemouth engineering firm s take on the iconic Japanese coupe for just 2,200. Today it has covered 112,000 miles but is still valued at three times that.

In the meantime, one of your teammates found a Devotion three buildings away, but didn t ping it because they didn t know you wanted it.That s a frustratingly common scenario in Apex Legends.
