Malvern, 21 November 2022
Morgan Motor Company has teamed up with resort wear and swimwear brand, Orlebar Brown, to create the ultimate holiday ready Super 3. The one-off Super 3 showcases a range of bespoke design features, celebrating the customisable nature of the model.

Super 3, as with all Morgan vehicles, is coach-built in Malvern, Worcestershire. Unveiled in February 2022, the Super 3 has received praise from media and customers alike, with the first production cars now in showrooms around the world. The company’s flair for creating bespoke special projects has lent itself to the collaboration with Orlebar Brown, which has seen the design teams from both companies work together on the unique specification.

The OB x Morgan Super 3 is finished in a pastel beige paint colour, combined with matching Khaki Sand technical fabric interior. Red accents feature throughout the exterior and interior, matching Orlebar Brown’s unique colourway. Several bespoke adaptations to the interior continue this theme, including a body colour instrument cluster, red cockpit bungee cords and a body colour OB liveried gearshift surround.

The exterior of the Super 3 features yet more bespoke modifications. Custom laser cut, geometric pattern luggage racks with red bungee cords adorn the sideblades, with the luggage rack pattern mimicked in a textured graphic applied to the sideblade. Orlebar Brown branding features subtly on the exterior of the Super 3, including on the body-coloured spotlight covers.

Most strikingly, this unique Super 3 has been adapted by the Morgan special projects team to enable the attachment of a bespoke sunshade canopy, allowing both driver and passenger to seek shade in even the sunniest of locations. The removable canopy, with its body colour frame, is trimmed with the same Khaki Sand technical fabric as the interior of the car and fits to specially adapted mounts on the flyscreens and roll hoops.

The ultimate holiday ready Super 3 will be seen in some of Europe’s most exotic locations over the next 12 months. To launch the collaboration, adventure photographer and visual artist Karl Shakur has taken the OB x Morgan Super 3 on its first road trip, capturing his adventures on and off the roads and beaches in locations around Wales.

“Beautifully designed cars appear on every mood board as design inspiration for OB collections. I am very excited to be working with Morgan, bringing their history of classic design, iconic cars and dedication to craftsmanship. Values that we share. And I cannot wait to drive this extraordinary OB car.”
Adam Brown, founder, Orlebar Brown

“Super 3 is a statement of individuality, providing a blank canvas to reflect one’s personality whilst offering the means to experience adventure. The OB x Morgan Super 3 introduces a colourful new character in the Super 3 Story. It has been a pleasure to work with the OB team to deliver a suite of exclusive features and curate an adventurous, purposeful yet relaxed, holiday ready aesthetic.”
Jonathan Wells, Chief Design Officer, Morgan Motor Company
