The Morgan Threewheeler is back! For the first time in 58 years, Morgan is planning to offer its classic motorbike-engined Threewheeler for sale again next year.
Around 30,000 examples of the original model were built between 1909 to 1953. But while the new version retains the old school looks, Morgan has thoroughly updated the design. For a start, power is now delivered to the single rear wheel by Harley Davidon’s latest 100bhp 1.8-litre V Twin motorbike engine, which is mated to a five-speed gearbox sourced from Mazda.
Thanks to the fact that the Threewheeler weighs in at around 500kg, Morgan predicts that the car will complete the 0-60mph sprint in 4.5 seconds and hit 115mph flat out.
The car is features an aircraft-style cockpit, including details like a bomb-release starter button, which Morgan claims “indulges the feeling of flying through the air.”
Buyers get the choice of eight colours, gloss black detailing and a choice of black or tan leather interiors. As with all of Morgan’s cars, a high degree of personalisation will be offered. Prices will be announced after the car’s launch at the Geneva Motor Show.
