They may be new, but the five models created to celebrate the partnership between Morgan Motor Company and its retailer in the Netherlands, Louwman Exclusive are a reminder of the days when motoring was truly motoring and craftsmanship was in focus rather than mass production.

The three limited-edition specifications served as the blueprint for the LE60 range that includes two Plus Six models in Ice Blue, a pair in Scintilla Silver, and a single Almond Green 3 Wheeler. The models were all designed in-house by Morgan's design team at the company's factory in Malvern, Worcestershire, England.

"We are delighted to recognize this landmark anniversary with our Dutch dealership, Louwman Exclusive," said Marcus Blake, Chief Sales Officer at Morgan Motor Company. "We are proud of our entire Dealership network, and it gives us immense pleasure to be able to celebrate these milestones in such a fitting way. When Louwman contacted us with their plans to celebrate 60 years as a Morgan dealer, we wanted to make sure they did so in style. All Morgan cars are special, but with consultation from our design team, these bespoke LE60 specials are especially beautiful and unique."

The Ice Blue LE60 Plus Six rides on 19-inch alloy wheels that feature a design that envokes the wire wheels of the past, but with a contemporary twist. There are yellow accents throughout the interior and exterior of the car - brake calipers, spot light castings, and LE60 decals just to name a few. The cabin is covered in black pebble-texture leather with yellow diamond seat stitching and LE60 headrest embroidery, and a matte tawny wood dashboard and tunnel top trim, while an interior motif reaffirms the model's significance.

Each Plus Six is powered by BMW's B58 turbocharged, inline six-cylinder 3.0-liter engine, which produces 335 bhp. The models can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds.

This second Plus Six LE60 model also has yellow accents, starting at ground level where the 18-inch black Speedster wheels sit above yellow brake calipers. There is a yellow number 6 painted on the grille, yellow horizontal seat stitching, and yellow LE60 headrest embroidery. A yellow band serves as a visual break between the hood and windscreen. Its dashboard and tuned top are body colored.
