Nice pics if only we could see that engine.

Like all new car prototypes these days, another LHD, indicating where they expect to sell most of them. Also Shame they have not retained the Sliding Pillar innocent

Those instruments don't look too period, but i'm sure 3 wheels will be fun.

The engine will be a 1800 CC Harley-Davidson coupled to a five speed Mazda gearbox with a reverse gear. 100 bhp at the rear wheel and acceleration 0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds.

It sounds like fun.

In talking with Matt Humphries about the design influences for this project, setting aside the original Morgan Threewheeler, which is a given!, they were quite wide and varied (but all very appropriate).

For instance, he wanted to try to capture the appeal of early American street rods (converted Ford Model Ts, etc) with their simplicity and raked stance - even down to the often primer paint. Matt also wanted to inject the aesthetics and feel of aviation and therefore, some of the switch and cockpit detailing will also reflect this (the bomb switch starter just being one aspect). There were others but that would be nice to hear directly from him.

I am very excited to see the finished product, from the conversations I have had, it will be a really unique sports 'car'.
