After a nine-year run, the Morgan 3 Wheeler will end production
The Morgan 3 Wheeler was one of the automaker’s more popular offerings. Since 2011, 2,500 have been built, and that’s a fair number, because Morgan is a very small automaker. As of 2021, the Morgan 3 Wheeler will cease production. To send it off, the British boutique automaker will produce 33 limited edition P101 models. These 33 vehicles will have unique liveries, design elements and cosmetic enhancements. Morgan says they will be available in four ‘art pack’ variants.
P101 Art Packs
The Belly Tank – Referencing liveries found on belly tank racers and ‘lakesters.’ Because they were inspirations for the 3 Wheeler initially, The Belly Tank graphic pack features a distressed effect in the vinyl.
The Dazzleship: (vehicle shown in photography/video) Inspired by WWII combat ships.
The Aviator: Inspired by nose art found on RAF planes in WWII.
The Race Car: The Race Car graphic pack features stripes and roundels, paying homage to the liveries that adorned early Morgan race cars.
Just like the previous Morgan 3 Wheelers, the P101 will have an 82 horsepower, S&S 1998cc V twin engine. Power is fed to the single rear wheel via a Mazda-sourced five-speed manual transmission. The power may seem low for a sports car, but the Morgan can run 0 to 60 mph in less than six-seconds. It also gets 30 mpg.
According to Morgan, the P101 is priced from £45,000 plus local market taxes and on-the-road costs. That’s about $59,500 USD, and – yes – the Morgan P101 3 Wheeler will be available in the United States.
