Morgan, famed for its wood-framed transport and modern retro-themed designs, is getting back in the game for the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, this time with a three-wheeled conveyance
powered by a nose-mounted V-twin engine mated to Mazda five-speed gearbox.
The power is sent to the rear wheel by a V-belt, and the design remains a classic, airplane-inspired thing of quirky beauty. There's no real reason to build a three-wheeled car, or at least no good one, aside from the fact that they're fun, weird, and pretty cool-looking, so we're not going to ask any "whys" as to the 3 Wheeler's existence.
At £25,000 before tax, the 3 Wheeler is about the least expensive Morgan you could own. Considering its super-light construction and 115-horsepower output, it's sure to be a fun little ride as well. Best of all, it's approved for U.S. roads. We want one. Now.
