Performance and 0-60 time

The Morgan 3 Wheeler might not be able to take on supercars in a straight line, but sitting with an elbow hanging out of the car and a hurricane of wind hitting your forehead, it feels nearly as fast.

Low down, with a tiny windscreen and an exhaust mounted directly inline with your ear, driving the Morgan is a truly visceral experience. It's all about perception of speed in this car; even 60mph feels hugely quick thanks to the constant bombardment on every once of your senses.

Relatively short gearing combines with a surprisingly rev-happy engine to deliver a 0-62mph time of 6 seconds - a mark of the car's power to weight ratio rather than its output alone. Top speed is 115mph, but believe us, anything about 100mph is a life-affirming experience. At least, it is when you stop and realise you're still breathing.

The experience is heightened driving the 3 Wheeler on the motorway, which alongside any sort of HGV, is borderline terrifying. None of this really matters though, as the 3 Wheeler is all about B-roads. It’s here that the blend of handling, accessible performance and a raw driving experience combine to deliver something very special indeed.
