eCoty Toyota GT86 vs Morgan 3 Wheeler video

Not two car you would initially think of in the same sentence, the Toyota GT 86 and Morgan 3 Wheeler offer similar levels of fun, in completely different ways

Toyota GT86 vs Morgan 3 Wheeler. It doesn’t have a natural ring to it, we’ll admit. They’re easy to pair together by ‘virtue’ of being eCoty 2012’s lowest powered cars, though, and while there’s a 117bhp disparity between the two, there are some key spec matches.

The 500kg Morgan weighs less than half the 1200kg Toyota, so its 80bhp doesn’t sound as paltry as it could be when pitted against its foe’s 197bhp – the 3 Wheeler’s power-to-weight ratio of 163bhp/ton is nudging the GT86’s 167.

Morgan claims a startling 4.5sec 0-62mph time; someway ahead of the Japanese coupe’s 7.6sec, though the video below should give you some idea of how that actually plays out.

The biggest similarity between the two isn’t on their spec sheets, though; it’s the fun they allow at sane speeds, and the rewards and satisfaction they dish up for keeping your confidence – and their momentum – at a maximum. They’re the cars on eCoty that require most effort to make them go quickly, but they’re arguably the most fun when you do.
