From ash to ashes: Morgan 3-Wheeler bows out with new edition

Published: 19 November 2020

► Morgan's zany 3-Wheeler ends production
► P101 edition is the final versions
► Just 33 will be made until 2021

Morgan’s oddball 3-Wheeler, in its current form, is in its final throes. To celebrate the car’s life and history, the brand has announced a new, final edition named P101.

The edition name derives from Project 101, the codename for the reborn 3-Wheeler that launched in 2011, with only 33 models being produced to see the car out into 2021.

For the P101, the Morgan 3-Wheeler benefits from ‘aero-disc’ wheels, rather than the 3-Wheeler’s usual wire ones, and a metal tonneau cover for the passenger seat – something that debuted on the dead EV3 project.

As for the colour scheme, you can spec the P101 in black or white with one of four decal packs: The Belly Tank, The Dazzleship, The Aviator or The Race Car. Belly Tank is a reference to the hot rod racers that were built using drop tanks from aircraft, Aviator is an extension of the Second World War-like decals on the current 3-Wheeler, and Race Car adds stripes and roundels. The one pictured is Dazzleship – a graphic pack that is a nod to the camouflaged paint schemes of naval war ships and military vehicles.

More than 2500 3-Wheelers have been made since the car’s debut in 2011. Want a P101? You’ll need £45,000 before taxes to get your hands on one. After that, Morgan has promised that the 3-Wheeler will return in future.
