Description
For those of you who'd like to see a trailer of the Morgan 3Wheeler you can click here . wine

DESIGN
When did you last regard a journey by motor car as an adventure? The Morgan 3 Wheeler is launched to bring the fun and passion back to personal transport. Lift the safety catch from the “bomb release” starter, hear the massive twin cylinders detonate and choose your favourite destination.

The iconic design of the Morgan Threewheeler has been updated with 21st Century technology. The powertrain is a V Twin fuel injected engine mated to a Mazda 5 speed (and reverse) gearbox. This provides smooth “get in and drive” convenience with the thrill of extreme performance. The car is a fusion of old and new.

Safety is paramount with a reinforced tubular chassis and twin rollbars for driver and passenger. A sturdy V belt provides traction to the reinforced rear tyre. Some things have not changed. The Morgan Threewheeler still holds long distance speed records for one litre cars set in the 1930’s so why change the shape? The pronounced bullet shape and the exposed chassis and aluminium tub are accompanied by the aeroplane profile of the car’s sides. The shape is of a gentle yet powerful missile at the front leading to a beetle back tail at the rear. 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. But above all the Morgan 3 Wheeler is designed for one purpose alone, to make driving fun. A leather padded cockpit complete with aircraft instrumentation adds to the sense of flying on the road. The car is easy to control with compact dimensions offering a perfect view ahead and to the rear. The car seems to respond as much to thought as physical input.

Dynamism is further enhanced by what the Morgan design team calls a sporty “race on Sunday” design philosophy. The car’s lines do not end abruptly but instead flow organically and echo the smooth shapes of a racetrack. The smooth profile makes the car look sleeker and lower. The sculpted bonnet and boot enhance the aerodynamic feel and the short overhangs front and rear emphasize the sports car sense of purpose.

CHASSIS AND DRIVING DYNAMICS
Morgan chassis experts have worked on the driving experience of the new Morgan 3 Wheeler with the same passion given to the development of any new Morgan. The result is a driver’s car with properties that do the sporting appearance full justice. The weight of the engine is counterbalanced by the mass of the passengers and the car has a planted feel with a very low centre of gravity to ensure it remains glued to the road. During the development process, the chassis team worked on the new 3 Wheeler in parallel with the forthcoming Morgan EvaGT. The result is a solution that features changes and refinements to virtually every single detail that affects a car’s cornering capabilities.

ENGINES
During its first year of production, the new Morgan 3 Wheeler will be available with a V twin from specialist engine builder S & S. The car is approved by US and European road transport authorities for safety and emissions. With an economical 115 horsepower the motor provides maximum power at minimum revs. Big torque spells effortless hillclimbing ability. The current focus of the Morgan Motor Company to cut CO2 emissions and low fuel consumption is very much part of the rationale behind the launch of this car. The time is right for Morgan to take a new look at the combination of acceleration, on road performance and economy. The time is right for Morgan to relaunch the 3 Wheeler.

Price £25,000 before tax

Bespoke extras
Bespoke leather and paint are available at extra cost as on the classic Morgan. A Polished engine, stainless steel tailpipes, cowl, polished cowl,headlamps and roll hoops are also extra cost options for a more classic look.

Exciting graphic packs to compliment the Sport “race on Sunday” philosophy

High quality decals are available to give the owner the opportunity to boost the sporty attitude of the new Morgan 3 Wheeler. These include special designs including US military and British Air Force inspired logos, oval racing numbers and stripes, a fearsome shark nose, chequered winner’s bonnet, official national flags and the Morgan wings.

More information can be found on the Morgan 3 Wheeler site

A couple of things I notice:

Meaning more choices in a year? I thought the engine would be the last thing we'd get to choose!

I take it they mean that polished roll hoops and polished headlamps are being the option (i.e. the polished finish being the option), and not actually have roll hoops and headlamps as optional extras.

On second thought, without headlamps it wouldn't be road legal, so it has to be the finish that is optional.

Also the price: How much taxes does Australia and the UK have on vehicles like these? We have 180 percent here in Denmark(I kid you not), so I'll certainly not have it registered here even if it was possible legally.

Our VAT is 20% of the price: equating to £30,000 for the Morgan 3 wheeler. I wonder what the cost with a few options will be?

In regard to your comments about the chrome I read it as those parts can be chromed at an extra cost. smile

Good. Is there no more taxes/vat/duties on something like that, other than the vat?

A UK registration would probably be easier than registrering it in Australia (EU and all).

AQM,

Is that 180% on all vehicles including previously owned vehicles?

What would happen if someone sold you a car very cheaply?

As far as I know, there is a bit of "rebate" if it's from the EU and already registered in another country. But in the end, you'd still be paying around the same amount all-up.

They estimate it themselves, so if it were too cheap, you'd not only get to pay the full amount, but also a bit on the side in fines for attempting to cheat them.

I don't mind having to register it another country, to tell you the truth, I just need to figure out which country is the smartest. I know that if a car resides more than a certain period within the EU, taxes has to be paid to have itregistered in "one or the other" country of the EU. Registering it in the UK would take care of that if I don't keep it for too long at a time here in Denmark.

Registering it Australia would allow me to keep it there without a carnet and to leave it there while I go home and make some more money. Besides, I can get black number plates down there - which can't be done here grin2

Have to say that puts it on a par with a 4/4 sport, I would have hoped it would sit at a lower price point.
