It is an old brand (founded in 1913) - all their cars are completely hand built and are made only on order.
I understand that there is a nice long waiting list too.

go to Morgan Motor Company Home Page for more info on these vehicles

That's right - it's XK There were so many people surrounding the XF that I couldn't get a good shot.

There were long queues for sitting on Bentleys! These cars were in a ring fenced area and only some 10-15 people were being allowed to enter there at one go. The interior of Bentley's was huge! The price tag of Continental Spur was 120k-150k, when you compare this to new Mercedes S class's 56k price tag, Merc seems way cheaper

Previously, I used to think that only very well built people could drive Bentleys or big Mercs. But I was surprised to find the range of adjustments offered in these luxury brands. The seats could be adjusted from almost every position! Even a shortie like me could find absolutely perfect driving position (in such a way I could see the bonnets of these cars).

The hummer is ridiculous... I suppose you pull out a wheel, twist the bonnet, bend here, push there, pull here --- and it turns into a robot. Better to spend much less in a toy shop! The Landrover seems to heading that way too.

Citroen: my pick of the realistic-price cars, but the Bentley --- If I ever did have absurd amounts of money to spend on a toy, that would be my choice!

Nice photos.I love the silver Morgan. I pray the day will come when Indians, especially the youth , will stop drooling over dull as ditchwater economy hatchbacks and the same with trunks, people mover MUV's and expensive Daddy-sedans and start demanding sporty cars, which run the range from economy to mid-range in price and equipment levels.In other words, affordable. The Morgan is one such exquisite motorcar that will never see the light of day in India. It is not affordable, i agree, but i'd rather own one than a garden variety Merc SLR. As for affordable, the Suzuki Cappucino can be a start.
