We'll be the first to admit that we'd perform all kinds of unseemly acts for the chance to own the new Morgan 3 Wheeler. The resurrected interpretation of the British manufacturer's very first vehicle calls to us in a way that's difficult to explain. Maybe it's the sound of that big American V-twin out front or our unexplainable propensity for vehicles with less than four wheels. Maybe we just admire the insanity of a manufacturer willing to produce a machine that looks like its sole intent is to cause you physical harm. Whatever it is, we want one, and watching the guys from Fifth Gear play with the machine has only stoked that desire.

Morgan let the Fifth Gear crew into the English countryside with the topless machine for a spell, and, despite the fact that the beast is loud, uncomfortable, hot and a little on the squirrely side, it looks like they enjoyed themselves as much as we did. Hit the jump for a look at the video for yourself.

        Why would you want a electric version of that car, it is the sounds that make it.

          That is an insult to gay men, because gay men know style, and THIS is style!! Like Steve McQueen in a guest spot of "Mad Men" while downing a fifth of Jack Daniel's before heading up to the Playboy Mansion for a private label concert by Sammy Davis Jr and Frank Sinatra style. Like the previous description, the Morgan doesn't make practical sense because it doesn't have to. It's more awesome than that. You don't own one of these to be "safe". You own one of these to remember why being a human being in the industrial age is so BADASS!!! This is what we call "passionate". And, from what I have experienced, people who want everyone to drive electric cars and only eat organic free range food from 100% recycled product containers dislike fun, because they're too afraid to go out and find some. I can tell you over a dozen gay men who'd drop twice as much on one of these machines, because style IS important to many men and this has more than you can ever wish to have Mr. Frederiksen

          'Go be gay' is about as thoughtful and realistic as 'nostalgia is death'. You may be attempting to fight fire with fire, but the REAL solution is a fire extinguisher or WATER. If your only opposition to ignorant bitchiness is GREATER ignorant bitchiness, you and Dan would make a fine team.

        Not every car on the road needs to be electric. Although an electric motor powering a puny barebones threewheeler makes more sense than a normal sized car where range is a bigger issue, a throaty V twin will do a much better job. An electric converted Morgan three wheeler makes about as much sense as ripping out the electric motors in a Tesla and putting the elise engine back inside. No point. Though not as bad as when Ruf has a go at electrifying a Porsche 911. Take a $80000 sportscar, spend $20000 making it slower, heavier, quieter, and less fun

      I think my next project will be a 3WD three wheeler based around a late 80s early 90s Subaru AWD and a Honda Goldwing.
