All-New Morgan 3 Wheeler: First Real Life Photos, gets 115HP V2 Engine

Being the most traditional of British brands, it comes to no surprise that Morgan is looking into its past to find a way into the future. Revealed here for the first time in real life is Morgan’s all-new 3 Wheeler, which comes some 58 years after the demise of the original model that was produced from 1909 up until 1953.

The new Morgan is fitted with a V Twin fuel injected motorcycle engine from specialist engine builder S & S. It produces 115-horses and is mated to a Mazda-sourced 5 speed transmission with a reverse gear. Morgan had previously stated that the 3 Wheeler would be fitted with a 100HP V-Twin Harley Davidson motor, but apparently the company’s plans changed in the meantime.

The British automaker said that the bullet shaped three wheeler was designed to emulate the styling of an airplane -hence the WW2 military aircraft like graphics on the presentation model. Morgan said that buyers can choose from a variety of graphics including US military and British Air Force inspired logos, oval racing numbers and stripes, a shark nose, chequered winner’s bonnet, official national flags and the Morgan wings.

A polished engine, stainless steel tailpipes, cowl, polished cowl, headlamps and roll hoops are also extra cost options for those looking for a more classic look.

The airplane theme is continued inside with the leather padded cockpit complete with aircraft like instrumentation. The company offers several options including bespoke leather upholstery.

The new Morgan 3 Wheeler will receive its world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show with sales to follow shortly after. Base pricing is set at £25,000 before tax (US$40,600 or €29,600 at today’s exchange rates), with Morgan stating that the car is approved by US and European road transport authorities for safety and emissions.
