Morello Auto


#21

In 2002 the Platani 1800 chassis was used as the basis for the creation of the 1800 PWRC rally car which took part in the Production World Rally Championschip championship from 2002 to 2005 in the N3 class.

The car was equipped with the turbo version of the 1.8L engine mounted on the standard car that delivered 195 Hp with 261 Nm of torque

2005 was a decisive year for Morello Auto because:

  1. The company was bought by a financial fund in Doha.
  2. The Termini Imerese factory is bought by FAT (Turin auto factory).

So the new range of vehicles was as follows:
Kalsa 2.0 DI, light sport coupe with 2 luxury seats.
Scirocco 3.0 SS, Sport coupe with 2 luxury seats.
Platani MK 2, hatchback 4doors / 4 seats with PWRC class N3 (coming soon).

The Kalsa 2.0 DI model fitted the same I6 engine as the Tauromenion I6-B but with direct injection.
The main changes are the sequential gearbox and the satellite navigator as standard.
It was also the first light sport car of the Morello with front engine.

The Scirocco 3.0 SS model was equipped with a turbocharged V8 engine called 423/326, which was based on a 1987 prototype that was not mass-produced due to the lack of supply agreement with the BMS team, a 5-speed sequential gearbox and the satellite navigator.

The Platani Mk2 model had a new body and the chassis in light AHS steel and fitted with a new 1.9 liter engine giving the car a power of 161Hp and a torque of 258 Nm.

From the Platani Mk2 was derived the version to compete in the PWRC category N3 that mounted the elaborate version of the 1.9 Litrimontato engine on the standard car that brought the power to 258 Hp and torque to 302 Nm.

In 2010 Morello put into production the Platani MK 3 2400 a Premium hatckbatck characterized by high driveability but without giving up entirely to the sportiness that peasantises the brand.
The 2400 compared to 1900 (MK 2) was 10 cm longer, fitted with an AWD transverse transmission, with Variable Electric steering and the Sat-Nav system.
The engine was a 2421 cc aspirated with direct injection.

The 1900, however, with a new set-up that improved its performance, was still used in the N3 class of the PWRC for the two-year period 2010-2012 that is until the cancellation of the competition

Also the classic distinctive Luxury Sport by Morello Auto will be presented.

In 2014, Morello presented the Platani MK3 2400T that maintained the excellent chassis-mechanical base of the 2400 but with a restayling of the front and the plug-in of the turbo version of the 2.4-liter engine.
