Morgan celebrates Christmas in a very muddy way by taking the new Plus Four CX-T on an outing to pick up a tree. After strapping the conifer to the roof, there's an opportunity to slide the rugged coupe through an open field.
The video has a very simple concept. A worker at the Morgan shop realises that it's December and decides to take a Plus Four CX-T to pick up the tree. After arriving at the farm, he cuts the evergreen down with a chainsaw and straps the conifer to the roof.

Then, it's time to have some fun. The driver sees an open field while driving back to the shop and starts sliding around there. The CX-T kicks up lots of mud while the driver drifts around. It looks like a fun time to spend an afternoon.
At the end of the clip, the driver returns to the Morgan factory and does a sloppy job of decorating the tree. You can see a glimpse at the tail of the new Plus 8 GTR on the right side of the frame.
Morgan is making just eight examples of the Plus Four CX-T, and each one costs £170,000. The model has a BMW-sourced 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder that makes 255 bhp (190 kilowatts). A multi-mode electronic rear differential offers various levels of lock depending on what the driver wants to do.
The CX-T rides on EXE-TC coilovers and has wishbones from the Plus Six to widen the track. Chunky, all-terrain tyres provide some traction off-road. The suspension setup offers 230 millimetres (9.05 inches) of ground clearance.
The CX-T looks properly rugged with an external roll cage that has lights above the roof. The overhauled rear section holds two full-sized spare wheels, luggage cases, a toolbox, and fuel containers. A five-piece skid plate protects the vital mechanical components from damage.
