From the hydrogen-powered LIFEcar concept to the all-aluminum EvaGT to its history of wood-framed cars, Morgan spans an incredible variety of technology and aims with its cars, all wrapped in a classically-styled package. However, what many may not know is that the success of Morgan was originally founded on the manufacture of a very simple car, one with just three wheels.

The car was the Morgan 3 Wheeler, a simple design by engineer Harry Morgan (HFS) that became one of the most successful lightweight cars of the early days of motoring. Now, the iconic design of the Morgan 3 Wheeler has been updated with 21st Century technology but its styling has been kept retro, offering a relatively unique fusion of old and new.

This is the first video of a modern-day Morgan 3 Wheeler in action. We don’t need to tell you that 115 horsepower in a chassis that weighs just 1,100 pounds is going to be barrel loads of fun--watch and see for yourself.
