When most carmakers try to retrace their roots, they do so with neo-retro resurrections of classic models. Think Mini Cooper, Fiat 500, Dodge Challenger and such. But when Morgan went back to its roots, it did so in a decidedly different style, bringing the Threewheeler back into production while forging ahead with contemporary takes on its classic designs.

The new Threewheeler debuted in Geneva just a few months ago, and has just made its UK debut at London's Salon Privé before heading to Goodwood for the Festival of Speed. The car packs a 115-horsepower V-Twin engine hanging off the front of the car between the two front wheels with an extra wheel along for the ride in the back of the old-school open-air body.

But how many people, you ask, would want a car with no roof and three wheels? 480. That's how many deposits, according to reports, Morgan has received for the what's-old-is-new-again trike roadster. Pile those on top of the 740 cars Morgan sold last year, and their 1,000-unit annual production target suddenly looks well within reach.

Morgan isn't about to stop there, however, with plans to introduce a new model every year. The sleek, four-seat EvaGT is set to enter production in 2013, but before it does, the British niche automaker reportedly has plans to show us something new at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. We'll be watching, and waiting to see how many wheels it's got.

      I don't know how the price compares with the Ace Cycle Car, but it's a cool car/bike. The Ace Cycle Car is made under license by Morgan anyway, but made in the USA: http://cycle-car.com/

      A BRP Spyder costs far less and is far more reliable than this could ever hope to be. With the way most people drive theses days, I would be afraid to go much past my driveway on either three-wheeler, though.

        The Spyder is a lame motorcycle. This is an interesting car.

      I'd love one to carve through Shenandoah roads. Needs a Browning .30-06, just for kicks.

      That is too cool! I wonder how much. I suppose it qualifies as a motorcycle and they can get around most of the automobile regulations.

      I wonder about the interior. It looks leather, but what if you get caught in a sudden rain storm? There's no top to put up. That said, I want one.

        It would have more top end HP power but look like hell and have far less torque, plus you would have to put the radiator someplace.

          Well, I guess it would not be way down on torque but the power would still (i am guessing) at higher RPM. The Dorsoduro motor puts out 130+ hp and 84.81 lbs•ft of torque but it would still not look as pretty up front as the current choice, and honestly in this car that is very important.

      I would lay down a deposit in a heartbeat for that if I had the means.

      I am sure this thing is crazy expensive, but I think it would be a blast to drive on a lazy Sunday afternoon. Really cool.

        It's supposed to be about 35 to 40k. Not bad for a morgan.

          Converted to US Dollar. I wonder if I can get my grandpa to trade in his mercury....

          If that's 40,000 UK pounds, that almost $65k which I would consider crazy expensive. (then again, maybe you already converted it to US Dollars, still though that's a pretty big chunk of change) Still a rolling work of art though.

          25K in the UK before conversion.
