56 CARS FOR 56 YEARS
MOKE will mark its homecoming with a strictly limited run of 56 cars, built for sale exclusively in the United Kingdom. Each is available in a choice of 14 colours and the Limited Edition ‘MOKE 56’ comes with the front grille and windscreen rails in chrome, a discrete union jack badge on the front wings, and a numbered plaque on the bonnet.
Waiting lists are filling fast with resorts and private buyers in English coastal hotspots taking particular interest.
REDESIGNED AND REBORN
Following UK regulatory approval, MOKEs are now available to purchase across the United Kingdom and Ireland. All MOKE bodies will be engineered and sub-assembled in the centre of Britain’s globally renowned specialist automotive manufacturing industry in the Midlands before being shipped to Cerizay, France for final assembly.
Today’s MOKEs remain true to the look and feel of the original, with a particular focus on maintaining the sense of fun and freedom that has endeared the car to so many for more than five decades. Updates include a new 4 cylinder, fuel injection engine, uprated suspension, braking and the option for either automatic transmission or manual for the more engaged driver.
The vehicle is also slightly larger to provide more cabin space. Features previously viewed as a luxury like power steering and heated windscreen now, of course, come as standard.
From today, UK buyers will be invited to order either the limited edition ’MOKE 56’ or the standard MOKE Classic, full production of MOKEs in standard configuration also start today. Indicative pricing starts at £20,000 excluding local taxes and delivery.
