Morgan has rolled out a V6 Roadster and a 3 Wheeler inspired by the UK's legendary Brooklands racing circuit. Each limited to 50 units, the new specials are "designed to celebrate the ancestry of British racing cars and their styling" with special color combinations, satin finishes and detailing.

The Roadster comes in Jaguar "Brooklands" Green, Speed Silver Satin hood and radiator cowl and silver A-pillars and window surrounds. A black stitched leather interior will be set off by a special Brooklands steering wheel, light silver gauge bezels, a sculpted box cover and more space for the pedals. The Roadster costs 40,000 pounds ($61,532 US) plus Value Added Tax, a supplementary options list allowing you to add generously to that price.

The 3 Wheeler will come standard in that same Jaguar "Brooklands" Green hue, but a polished body with extra rivets will also be offered as a cost option. We have been informed that the Brooklands Edition 3 Wheeler will be offered for sale in the US, and the price will be announced in September. The press release below has more.

Brooklands Edition Roadster and 3 Wheeler

The Brooklands circuit was the brainchild of Hugh Locke-King, and was opened on 17 June 1907 as the first purpose-built banked motor race circuit in the world.

Requirements of speed and spectator visibility led to the Brooklands track being built as a 100 ft (30 m) wide, 2.75 miles (4.43 km) long, banked oval. The banking was nearly 30 feet (9 m) high in places. In addition to the oval, a bisecting "Finishing Straight" was built, increasing the track length to 3.25 miles (5.23 km), of which 1.25 miles (2.01 km) was banked. It could host up to 287,000 spectators in its heyday.

Along the centre of the track ran a dotted black line, known as the Fifty Foot Line. By driving over the line, a driver could theoretically take the banked corners without having to use the steering wheel.

Brooklands was more than a great sporting arena. Brooklands was the birthplace of British motorsport and aviation, home of Concorde and the site of many engineering and technological achievements throughout eight decades of the 20th century.

These Limited edition Brooklands inspired Morgans have been designed to celebrate the ancestry of British racing cars and their styling. An unusual arrangement of classic colour-ways, black detailing, and satin finishes are both in vogue and visible on cars of the era. The cars focus on using the options currently available on a Morgan car in a cost effective manner.

Only 50 of each the Brooklands Roadster 3.7l V6 and 3 Wheeler vehicles will be buiilt. Each car includes a limited edition numbered dash plaque, an array of cost options, a Brooklands centenary book, and an annual membership to the Brooklands trust.

      When is this primer paint job trend going to die? Havent enough cars been ruined by idiots with spray cans already?
        • 1 Year Ago
        @icemilkcoffee Agreed. What is so stunning about a rattle can paint job using WalMart grey and black primers? You lay out the Banjamins for a Morgan you expect a hand-sanded, multi-layered masterpiece of a paint job, not something from Earl Schieb's back lot.

      Man, there's a part of me that will always be in love with Morgans, but there's another part that realizes that's a pipe dream. Still, if I had an outsized discretionary income, I'd pony up to buy a Roadster kit in a heartbeat. That would have to be one of the coolest projects ever. As it is, I'm seriously thinking of building my own poor man's 3-wheeler from scratch. That'll be just as fun (and hella aggravating) too...probably end up being more expensive than just buying a Morgan 3-Wheeler--as projects of this sort usually are--but at least I can spread out the cost rather than plunking down one huge lump sum at the get-go.

        You can get a second hand running Mog for under 20k US easily

      Thankfully there is not some twit in a tweed sports coat droning on about the 'special paint' and the 'Murdered out' grill. LOL.

      I wish the US government would relax safety standards for small car manufacturers so that all Morgans could be sold here. How is a new Morgan any less safe than the thousands of vintage ones here already?
      • 1 Year Ago
      Marvelous! Those early sports/race (often the same thing back then) cars were not about high-gloss, fancy finish at all. Buddy mechanic worked on a propane-fueled Rover V8 Morgan that was one of *the* fastest (and scariest) cars he\'d ever experienced!

      I wish we could get relatively affordable cool cars like this in the US. 62k USD for something really limited edition and strange-looking.
      • 1 Year Ago
      If I pitch a big enough temper tantrum, will somebody buy me a three wheeler? PLEAZE! Can't afford one on my social security check. I wannit NOW!
