The Morgan 3 Wheeler has always been built with the intention of changing every journey into an adventure. Lift the safety catch from the ‘bomb release’ starter button, hear the massive twin cylinders detonate and choose your favourite destination. We have kept the traditional shape which you can trace back to the early twentieth century, because why fix something that still holds the long distance speed records for one litre cars set in the 1930’s?
From the design perspective, we wanted to make a car as close to an aeroplane as possible, whilst providing space for a passenger and storage space at the back. The only purpose of the extravagant Morgan 3 Wheeler is to make driving fun. With a leather padded cockpit complete with aircraft instrumentation, the S&S 1983cc V Twin engine can make it feel like you really are flying.
The Morgan 3 Wheeler has the perfect combination of acceleration, performance and economy. With and estimated 140 Newton metres of torque the motor provides maximum power at minimum revs. Combine this with a weight of 525kgs, the 21st century Morgan 3 Wheeler provides unrivalled power to weight for its on the road price. Doing zero to sixty-two mph in six seconds, coupled with a top speed of 115mph, it is obvious that this car’s spec hasn’t been forgotten as we have remodelled it over the years.
Morgan vehicles have always been constructed using the traditional body-on-frame method of attaching a panelled body onto a rolling chassis. This was the first method used during mass-production which started in the 1930’s. We retain this method as it offers lightweight construction, and enables us to remain true to our heritage of using the finest materials – ash,leather and aluminium.
When did you last regard a journey by motor car as an adventure? The Morgan 3 Wheeler is designed to bring the fun and passion back to personal transport. Lift the safety catch from the 'bomb release' starter button, hear the massive twin cylinders detonate and choose your favourite destination.
The iconic design of the Morgan Threewheeler has been updated with 21st Century technology. The power train is a 1983cc 'V-twin' fuel injected engine mated to a Mazda 5 speed (and reverse) gearbox. This provides smooth 'get in and drive' convenience with the thrill of extreme performance.
Some things have not changed. Why change the shape when the Morgan Threewheeler still holds long distance speed records for one litre cars set in the 1930's? The pronounced aluminium bullet hull and the exposed tubular chassis are accompanied by the aeroplane profile of the car's sides. The shape is of a gentle yet powerful missile at the front leading to a beetle back tail at the rear.
From the design viewpoint, the focus was set on making the car as close to an aeroplane as possible, while retaining handy extra space for driver, passenger and a hold-all in the rear. The Morgan 3 Wheeler is designed for one purpose alone, to make driving fun. A leather padded cockpit complete with aircraft instrumentation adds to the sense of flying on the road. The car seems to respond as much to thought as physical input. With an estimated 140 Newton metres of torque the motor provides maximum power at minimum revs. When coupled with a weight of 525kgs the 21st century Morgan 3 Wheeler provides unrivalled power to weight for its on the road price. The time is right for Morgan to take a new look at the combination of acceleration, performance and economy. The time is right to drive a Morgan 3 Wheeler.
