Earlier this week, you may have seen David Gandy whizzing around London in a Morgan 3 Wheeler, decked out in Aspinal of London livery to support the launch of the model’s new collection.
Gandy’s car boasted Air Force-style detailing, and special quilted red interior. And, as we’ve long been fans of this striking invention by a pioneering company, what better time to take a closer look?
The Morgan 3 Wheeler was designed for one purpose, and one purpose alone: To make driving fun. And who’s going to argue with that? The leather padded cockpit is the first nod to a flying heritage, an aesthetic bolstered by the aircraft instrumentation.
There really is no feeling closer to flying itself than hurtling along in one of these magnificent — a fact to which we’re such Mr Gandy would attest. An S&S engine sits on the front of the car, a V-twin fuel injected bit of kit capable of creating 1983cc. And, at 2.0 litres, the engine is most powerful when coupled with a lightweight body.
Thankfully, that’s exactly what Morgan have done with the 3 Wheeler. Unrivalled in power-to-weight ratio, you’d be forgiven for thinking the car couldn’t get any better — or funner. You’d be wrong. For, as with any Morgan, each 3 Wheeler can also be specified entirely to the whims and wants of the owner.
So if you’re looking to inject a little more excitement into your driving, and if four wheels are just too many, then the 3 Wheeler is surely the car for you? Handsome, well-handling and endorsed by David Gandy himself? Sign us up.
