Morgan Super Sports Three Wheeler to make retro-inspired comeback

As unlikely as it may seem the long-dead Morgan Super Sports Three Wheeler is set to make a retro-tastic comeback with a new version that will mark the brand’s centenary.

This retro-inspired model will be the first new Morgan Three Wheeler in almost 60 years. The unlikely comeback has been confirmed by Jill Price, the sister of the company’s managing director Charles Morgan. The modern Super Sports will be powered by a 1,100cc or 1,000cc v-twin engine, based on the original JA Prestwich unit. Power output is predicted at about 90 hp, which could get the vehicle up to a top end of around 160 km/h. A three wheeler at that speed sounds a little sketchy to us, but Morgan must know what they’re doing, right?

It gets better too, apparently Morgan is even planning racing versions of its new Three Wheeler. The new Super Sports won’t come cheap with a price is expected to be in the range of 46,000 GBP ($97,600 NZ). If you’re not convinced here is a few famous folk who drove the Three Wheeler back in the day: Brigitte Bardot, Queen Noor of Jordan, Ralph Lauren, and it was the first car Sir Stirling Moss drove.
