No, building a Morgan isn't as easy as readying a pack of two-minute noodles. As you may know, Morgans are mostly hand-made, and the chassis uses a lot of wood. Jeremy likes to think that they're owned by people who have their teeth whitened as part of their mid-life crisis. What you can't ignore though, is the painstakingly beautiful way these cars are made.

The Plus 8 is actually one of Morgan's more seasoned models, and has been in production since 1968. Usually, it takes about one full month to build a single Plus 8. The Telegraph however, has managed to fit in the entire build process in a video spanning 2:14 minutes. 30 days of hard work encapsulated within 2 minutes 14 seconds.

Enough talking. Now watch.
