Morgan 3 Wheeler outed before Geneva debut [video]

Morgan has released new information about the 3 Wheeler, ahead of its debut at the Geneva Motor Show.

Perfectly road-legal in Europe and the United States, the 3 Wheeler is a modern reinterpretation of the classic model that was built between 1909 and 1953. It rides on a tubular chassis and features an aluminum body, gloss black wheels, and a matte black dual exhaust system. If that isn't special enough, options include a polished engine, stainless steel tailpipes, and additional brightwork.

Inside, the cabin is relatively minimalistic but there's leather upholstery, aircraft-inspired instrumentation, a 'Bomb release' starter button.

At launch, power will be provided by a 115 hp (86 kW / 117 PS) S&S V Twin engine. It will be paired to a Mazda-sourced five-speed manual transmission, which should enable the 500kg (1100 lb) trike to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds and hit a top speed of 115 mph (185 km/h).

The 3 Wheeler will be launched later this year and pre-tax pricing starts at £25,000 (€29,150 / $40,180).
