I'm very curious at this point. I'd like to see the final uncamouflaged product before passing judgement. Regardless, based on the launch of the current 3-wheeler, I'd wait for them to have a model year or two under their belts to work out the "teething issues" on a new product...

Yes exactly, if they had used the excellent and proven Ford fwd system I could be a lot more enthusiastic about the final product, a drive belt and more power do not stack up in my book.

It appears to me that this one is more aimed at the US market, but they need a decent dealer network first

I think the new 3 wheeler will be a far better car than the previous one.

But that engine out the front of the current model makes the car special and I think MH did a splendid job as it just looks right from every angle.

It also makes the early aircraft feel of the car somewhat authentic and suits the leather helmet and goggles look which is both a necessity and a lot of fun.

The soulless pedantics can sneer all they like, but no one buys a 3 wheeler ( or a Morgan ) purely for its roadholding or ability or outright speed , but rather for the fun to be had and the whole Britishness and eccentricity of a car that in the modern age is somewhat absurd. Having said that it really is a great drive and this from a Lamborghini and Ferrari owner.

The detractors haven't driven one or are just mmm..... green. ( Cue lots of solid earnest comments which I will ignore as we know from whence they come)

I wouldn't really want to know someone who doesn't like the 3 Wheeler as it offers such a cheerful antidote to the eurobox and the modern fog of political correctness and wokeness ( if there is such a horrible word). And to the proliferation or "drivers aids" that beep at you. The only driver aid I need is my riding mechanic. ( 3 wheeler owners will appreciate this attempt at a joke)

The problem is the world has become charmless as more and more jagged overwrought supercars appear in the smoke at launch and are soon forgotten. It is fair I think to say that the overall trend in the western world over the last 20 years is vintage and it shows no sign of stopping. ( New Countach anybody?)

The exposed engine in the 3 wheeler harks back to the early days of Morgan and underlines the mechanicalness ( I think I made that up) of the "car". It appeals to both the designer and the engineer much like a Victorian bridge.

It has character and enhances our world rather than detracting from it like so many modern objects that litter down hill and dale. ( the proliferation or ugly road signs anybody) And it makes one smile. I think its a tougher job to achieve this with the new 3 wheeler using a in-line ( I presume) 3 but I do hope Morgan manages it and sells lots and lots!

Well said Vitaloni. I don’t think anyone inclined to this form of motoring would disagree with the form and potential enjoyment of the M3W.

Function is where it came unstuck. The M3W has racked up an extensive list of safety and reliability issues because of what is generally identified as poor design, engineering, and construction combined with customer and product support that was sadly lacking.

Let’s hope they get it right this time….
