All good things come to an end. Morgan is about to pull the plug on their iconic 3 Wheeler, but we still get ‘one last dance’ with this beauty, thanks to a new, limited-run P101 model, the final edition of this ride. Prices for the new 3 Wheeler P101 start from £45,000 or around $60,000 and for that kind of money you might get to own a piece of automotive history.
Morgan will build only 33 units of the final edition of its 3 Wheeler, making this a very desirable ride. Production of this special edition is set to begin sometime during 2021, that will also be the final year of the lightweight sports car and its S&S V-twin engine.
P101, or Project 101, was the internal codename for the revived 3 Wheeler more than a decade ago. The current 3 Wheeler became one of the car manufacturer’s best-selling models, but you might ask yourselves, what’s so special about the final edition of the Morgan 3 Wheeler?
Well, this thing features a composite resin, translucent golden tonneau cover over the passenger seat. It also comes with Aero-disc wheels, matching the main body color, while a set of vintage-looking, low-slung 9-inch Hella spot lamps sit at the front.
Please note the asymmetric exterior theme, complemented by the alternating black and white ceramic-coated left and right straight-cut exhausts. A fly screen, extra louvers, exposed rivet details, and unique P101 markings add to the exclusivity of this limited edition series.
Morgan is also offering the choice between four different decal packs for the final edition of the P101: The Belly Tank, The Dazzleship, The Aviator, and The Race Car.
But despite the fact that this 3 wheeler looks incredibly cool, I have to admit that I’m more interested in the 2.0-liter V2 engine sitting under the hood. Delivering only 82 HP, this small engine is paired to a manual transmission from a Mazda MX-5. It’s not something modern supercar enthusiasts would get excited about, but considering this thing is ultra light, we’re sure its performances are insane.
The car is able to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 6 seconds flat. But this three wheeler is all about the sound and a unique driving experience. That counts more than top speed or modern equipment if you ask us.
