Design

The original concept for a 3 Wheeler comes all the way back from 1909. Designed by company founder Harry Morgan, it too featured a V-Twin engine. It isn't however until the 1920s that the design of the 3 Wheeler we are reviewing here starts to become more apparent.

Little touches like the small glass windscreens and split exhausts running alongside the bodywork, can be traced right back to Morgan's roots. In fact, the entire design brief for the car was about bringing to life the heritage of the company through something fun but that feels a touch modern.

The modern 3 Wheeler design as such is essentially a larger version of the racing cars used back in the 1930s. Its looks draw heavily on Morgan's heritage, combining aeronautical style instrumentation with quilted seats and a V-Twin engine mounted up front.

Definitely eye-catching, even more so with the right decal set applied, there isn't really another car on the road right now that looks like a Morgan 3 Wheeler
