Morgan Threewheeler brings fun

Morgan says its new Threewheeler will put some fun and passion back in to personal transport.

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 holdall in the rear.

A leather padded cockpit complete with aircraft instrumentation adds to the sense of flying on the road.

Not only does it have the sort of paintwork that adorns WW2 fighters, it requires the driver to flip a safety catch "bomb release"-style starter to fire up the 1.8-litre twin cylinders.

Sourced from specialist engine builder S & S, the powertrain is a Harley-Davidson style V Twin fuel injected engine mated to a Mazda 5 speed (and reverse) gearbox.

As a three-wheeler, safety is addressed with a reinforced tubular chassis and twin rollbars for driver and passenger.

A sturdy V belt provides traction to the reinforced rear tyre. Prices will start from £25,000 plus tax.

So what's it like to drive? Morgan says the Threewheeler is "easy to control with compact dimensions offering a perfect view ahead and to the rear."

You can customise your Threewheeler with optional US military and British Air Force inspired logos, oval racing numbers and stripes, a fearsome shark nose, chequered winner's bonnet, official national flags or the Morgan wings.

All part of the fun.
