CAR recently spent a day at Malvern Link meeting the team at Morgan and driving the new Three Wheeler. You can read the five-page feature in the new Septemeber 2011 issue of CAR Magazine, and we've brought you a selection of out-takes and extra photos in our Morgan Three Wheeler gallery below.
Morgan Three Wheeler: not your average badge. But then this car does 0-60mph in 4.5sec and over 40mpg
Chris Chilton donned his goggles for a first drive in the Morgan Three Wheeler. 'I'd love to plonk a Lexus NVH engineer into the seat and see the look of horror on his face when the big twin cranks into life.'
Morgan started out making trikes before building its first four-wheeled car in 1936
Plenty of ribbing opportunity. Those twin seats are lovingly upholstered, prove surprisingly comfy
Morgan Three-Wheeler: now that's what we call a focused cabin. Twin screens just about nudge the slipstream over your head
Lovely VDO dials. Missile-like procedure for starter button to fire up the 1910cc V2 and its 115bhp
Morgan is built by real artisans at the Malvern Link factory
Now that's we call a wide track! Contributes to road-hugging handling
At one with the elements: Morgan craftsmen use traditional methods - wood, aluminium and leather
Bucks in the Morgan workshop
Not many specialist companies are thriving in these straitened times, but Morgan is. It's now in the third generation of the Morgan family, headed by Charles Morgan
Not your normal car showroom...
This is the view outside MD Charles Morgan's office at Malvern Link. Note original bug-eyed snout of Aero 8 racer
Red, white and blue: some of the pastel retro colours Morgan is reprising for its ancient-but-modern new roadsters
Green car is a Morgan Roadster with the Ford 3.0-litre V6, parked up at the bottom of the Morgan factory in Worcestershire
And the latest top-end of Morgan: the Aero Supersports. A glorious boat tail back - and those rear lights come from a Lancia Thesis!
