Morgan Threewheeler does donuts and a burnout – Click above to watch the video after the break

Take three wheels, add one 115-horsepower V-twin engine, a five-speed manual gearbox and barely enough metal bits and pieces to hold it all together. Blend and half-bake. What do you get? The Morgan Threewheeler. We're in lust.

If we were to strap ourselves into one of these crazy contraptions, we can think of only one accessory needed to truly do the machine justice, and you can see exactly what we mean in the video after the break. An old-timey Morgan deserves an old-timey set of goggles, no?

If you happened to find yourself sitting behind the three-spoke steering wheel of a Morgan Threewheeler, what would you do? How about a bunch of donuts followed by a one-wheel burnout in the middle of an empty parking lot? Yep, sounds about right.

Live vicariously through the man with the goggles in the video after the break.

      Tadpole trikes rule. This car makes the Lotuses look like pigs with that amazing power to weight ratio..

      This has to be my favourite vehicle released in a long while. With the WWII paint and some white wall tyres, I think it would be the only vehicle I ever needed.

      Hahaha, that burnout with that guy waving has to be one of the goofiest burnouts I've ever seen. Surprised it's able to light up the tire so easily, but I guess with so little weight down on the relatively low-grip tire it's much like burning out on a bike. Looks fun to drive, that's for sure!

        For those curious, the new Morgan Three-wheeler has a wide "car" tire at the back. http://www.caranddriver.com/var/ezflow_site/storage/images/features/11q1/2011_geneva_auto_show_10_coolest_debuts-feature/gallery/morgan_3-wheeler_tire_photo_409/4172714-1-eng-US/morgan_3_wheeler_213_cd_gallery.jpg

        For those curious it has a single wide low profile car tire at the back. PS: I posted a link here of the rear wheel, but its not showing.
