New Morgan Three-Wheeler Revealed +videoThu, 24 Feb 2011 00:00:00 -0800
New Morgan Three Wheeler
This really is a case of Morgan going back to its roots, with a traditional 3-wheel Morgan to tempt drivers looking for real, wind-in-the-hair, traditional motoring on a budget. A budget that will be just £25k + tax.
Morgan say they’ve made the New Morgan Three-Wheeler as close to an aeroplane as possible, with space for driver and passenger and a bit of ‘stuff’ in the rear holdall. A leather-clad cockpit with aircraft-style instruments adds to the thrills, thrills Morgan reckon are delivered as much in response to thought as physical input. From which we guess they mean it’s a hoot.
Morgan say that during the firts year of production the 3-Wheeler will be available with a 115bhp V twin from specialist engine builder S & S. Which sort of says that’s not a permanent plan. What Morgan do say is that the V Twin has big torque offering lots of hillclimbing fun. But no more real detail except it gets a Mazda 5-speed ‘box which does get a reverse gear.
The 3-wheeler is about as opposite of Morgan’s last offering – the Morgan Eva GT – as you could imagine. But it’s also the perfect offering for austere times. Being poorer shouldn’t mean having less fun, and the Morgan 3-Wheeler looks like it will be bundles of fun.
