It is now nearly sixty years since the last Morgan Three Wheeler was built, and whilst the world is a very different place in 2011 the time is right to relaunch this exceptional design. Young people may not have experienced the same thrill as the early Three-Wheeler pilots and perhaps cult status is assured for a car with such an emphasis on simple honest functionality. The future of road transport in the 21st century has two big issues, the conservation of precious resources and the protection of our beautiful natural environment. Downsizing and a philosophy of simplicity are ways of dealing with these problems. The Morgan Three-wheeler is a proven answer to these problems. In 2011 the Morgan Motor Company is to expand its range and go back to its roots.
The 2011 Morgan 3 Wheeler is a fusion of modern technology into a classic design. By fitting a modern V-twin engine and Mazda 5-speed gearbox the car provides & ‘get in and drive’ simplicity and reliability. A sturdy tubular frame and two rollover bars surround the passenger compartment. An aerodynamic 'bullet' hull protects the occupants from the weather. However, the feeling of freedom and contact with the road through the front wheels will bring to mind the joy of driving cars from the 20's and 30's but with none of their fragility or temperament. As Capt. Albert Ball discovered all those years ago, no car captures the feeling of flying quite like a Morgan, and this is so with the latest 3 Wheeler which features a leather padded aircraft-style cockpit.
Refining the original design has produced a unique 21st century vehicle. A sub-500kgs overall weight and streamlined bodywork provides the ultimate in performance and fuel economy. Once again, the iconic Morgan 3 Wheeler is being created by the skilled craftsmen at Malvern Link so that even in modern times, discerning drivers can experience the thrill and freedom of those halcyon days of motoring so long ago.</p>
