Nice review by Catchpole, he really gets what Morgans are all about. Nice to hear the car too, I think it sounds lovely. I've said it before, but the more I see of this car, the more I like it.

Me too, but it looks rather wide now for our narrow lanes

Should you get more details on the sport exhaust, please share here as I have the same question. Car already specced but that option was not available at the time...

It’s not a factory fit option as it won’t comply with regs

With be dealer fit

Interesting to note from the videos that with the front wheel spacing , the body shape and front end aerodynamics, I would suggest that these cars are a lot less likely to suffer from the sudden aquaplaning that affected the previous M3W.

Not sure this will be the case as the main aquaplaning effect is the build up of water in front of the wider rear tyre exacerbated by relatively low overall weight. Never heard of the narrow front wheels suffering.

Key lesson for 3 wheelers is making sure the rear tyre has decent tread depth to clear water and avoiding/slowing down for stretches of standing water....same applies to many 4 wheel cars that have wide/low profile tyres.

Perhaps that's why the rear tyre fitted now is of the winter / all season type ?

Sorry I will clarify that I was referring to the rear wheel, and short of running into a deep puddle I believe the factory has made a significant improvement, ie the rear tyre will no longer be fed jets of water from forward.

I think the reviews from journalists are very good.
Regarding the exhaust, if I ordered a super3 tomorrow, I would choose it with a standard exhaust. And I would make a custom stainless steel exhaust after delivery, like I did for my MTW....

Motoring down from Glenfinnan to Carlisle today via Oban and Inverary and saw a Super 3 going the other way. I think it was one of the "prototypes" that I saw in the factory on a recent visit. Porsche metallic green if I wasn't mistaken. It looked great. The more I see these cars the more I fancy one.
