Morgan Three Wheeler review

Morgan has succeeded where others have failed and produced its first three-wheeler since the Second World War. Is it worthy of the flying winged badge?

Three-wheelers break all the rules. Neither a motorcycle nor a car, they skim through gaps in traffic and legislation, drivers grinning broadly, flies in their teeth and hair plastered to their scalp. At least, that’s the theory. As Triking three-wheeler designer Tony Divey once said, however, “They’re unbalanced and you have to use that instability.”
In a world frightened of its shadow and girdled with health and safety caution, are we really ready for a car deliberately engineered to exploit a basic and inherent flaw in its configuration, namely that it has one wheel fewer than normal?
Others have been here before – Volkswagen with its 2006 GX3 concept, a still-born, front-drive trike designed to appeal to Californian kids, and Peugeot with its similar 2005 20Cup. BMW dabbled with three wheels on its original Isetta bubble car and more recently with the 2009 Simple concept and the 2006 Clever
eco-mobile. The grand-daddy of them all was HFS Morgan who, more than 100 years ago, produced his single-seat, three-wheeled Runabout cyclecar. His company continued building three-wheelers until 1939, the apogee being the amazing JAP-engined Aero model.
Those old Morgan trikes continue to fascinate, but Charles Morgan, grandson of HFS, was always reluctant to go back. He did once sanction a Triking Morgan, but it was an unhappy project.
