When we reviewed (and fell in love with) the Morgan 3 Wheeler, we said that deliveries in the United States would start in the first quarter of 2012, though TV personality and car enthusiast Jay Leno would probably get his a bit earlier. And after watching this video of Leno getting his first stint behind the wheel of the 3 Wheeler, we bet he's counting down the days until the open-top beast arrives in his garage.

Leno recently drove the 3 Wheeler and wrote a subsequent review for Wired, having this to say:

You know, when you drive cars like the Bugatti SuperSport or the McLaren, 100 miles per hour feels like 40. When you drive a car like this, 40 miles per hour feels like 200. And that's the fun of it really. You get that wonderful sensation of speed, you're close to the ground – you can scrape your knuckles as you go along. It's sort of... the ultimate motorcycle. It just makes you smile.

We couldn't agree more, Jay. Follow the jump to see Leno's full test of the Morgan 3 Wheeler.

      Leno has the greatest gig imaginable. Makes millions being mildly funny. Uses the money to buy hundreds if great cars, one pair of jeans and one denim shirt.

      I really didn't care for this car when they first showed it, but now I'm really starting to dig it. I think Jay made a lot of sense when he talked about much fun it is at low speed. Looks like the perfect weekend runabout.

      That thing just looks like a hoot to drive on a nice warm sunny Sunday afternoon.

      Leno is amazing. He's not funny, has way too much money and yet no backlash. Why? Right now it's popular to bash the wealthy, want them to pay more in taxes, etc except when you are Leno. The guy is worse than springstein trying to act likes he's an every man. No your aren't Jay. My neighbor who sacrifices and works extra hours to restore his car is nothing like you who can write a check for most anything.

        You are a hypocrite, your the one hating on him just because he has made something of himself, and you havent. He is sucessful obviously because other people like his work, and he spends his money on his passion, cars, and he is nice enough to share this with the world. This is a car blog, if you are not passionate about cars, well you can F*** off.

        @stclair5211, Jay Leno worked his way up, he had no car collection before.

        Except when the guy is the nicest car guy you could ever meet. That's who Jay Leno is.

      If Leno would spend as much time on his monologue as he does playing around cars, his show might actually become entertaining

        I would agree, BUT Leno is a car guy who has a has a tv show. Not a TV guy who likes cars.

      Wish they didn't put music over the first clip, so that we could take in the sound of the engine.

      SO, Jay Leno spun it. Yikes.

        Actually, no. He tried turning around and found out that this car's reverse gear took a crap.
