EVO Magazine: "Drives just like how it looks, hilariously good fun!"
If many people know Morgan by its famous Roadster or convertible reminiscent of the late 1930s, it should not be forgotten that the firm was born from the production of three-wheeled cyclecars, which made it possible to circumvent the taxes on automobiles in England. From 1906 to 1952, the Malvern-based manufacturer developed sporty tricycles that were a resounding success.
Today, this small craftsman, as only England can create them, continues his work of authenticity for motoring pleasure, still building the 4/4, the Plus 4 and the Roadster whose production has never really stopped since 1936. It was in the early 2010s, in 2011 to be precise, that the 3 Wheeler was born, or should we say reborn. It takes up the recipe of the time, by fixing a twin-cylinder engine from the world of motorbikes on a tubular steel chassis with an ash wood structure on which aluminium body panels are placed. Minimalist and light, the new Morgan tricycle can be driven at up to 185 kilometres per hour thanks to its Harley Davidson engine of 1,998 cm3, developing 82 horsepower and needing to move only 500 kilograms. Fun and quirky, the 3 Wheeler is a return to the source of automotive pleasure, blending the worlds of motorbikes and cars.
This 3- Wheeler
This Morgan 3 Wheeler is in near mint condition. Delivered new in Germany on 27 March 2013, it has only 3.750 kilometres on the clock. Its classic Morgan Sport Green (British Racing Green as we all know it) is flawless, as is its interior and Biscuit colored quilted leather.
We can see the optional Brooklands steering wheel; the expensive chrome luggage rack, black finished roll bar, wheel covers and exhaust.
Other nice details are the two small aero screens, the leather straps to fix the bonnet and the silver-coloured striping. The 3-Wheeler was updated a lot during its lifetime and this example received quite a lot of those upgrades including the centa drive, the steering kit and of course the re-inforced chassis.
Its engine starts at the quarter turn, in a roque noise signed Harley, just to take the wheel is a real pleasure! It is a pure driving experience, and hilariously good fun from the go!
