Caterham 160Morgan Three-Wheeler or Caterham? That is a decision we desperately wish we had to wrestle with. Both are truly iconic vehicles, boasting a cult-like following. With the Morgan, it's unique layout and vintage look make it one of the single most interesting vehicles on the road, even if its V-twin engine doesn't deliver a ton of grunt.

With the Caterham, though, we have a known performance icon. In this 160 variant, though, there's only 80 horsepower at work, courtesy of a turbocharged, three-cylinder engine.

So, which would you choose? The seriously cool Morgan or the classically styled, entry level Caterham? Evo is here to help you figure that out. The Brit mag has taken the two cars to Mallory Park circuit in Leicester, UK, to see which is best.

      Its fun seeing both these cars, but lets be honest here, the Morgan is no track car. Its actually the car I personally would prefer, but its more of a cruiser than anything to do with being on a track.

      The two coolest cars on the road, hands down. I don't care what anyone else says.

      Wouldn't kick either of them out of my garage for leaking oil... Two cool cars meant for slightly different uses.

      Does anyone expect the Morgan to win a track shootout? Let's be real. Extremely cool car, however, it's not a track car.

      I love the Morgan 3-Wheeler. So much character. Also, ballsy for EVO to go helmetless here.

      Fastest car loses? I've I had the Morgan, I'd be in no hurry to go anywhere as long as it wasn't raining.

      I'd have thought that the Caterham would have won by a larger margin. The Morgan has 82 hp, only 2 more than the Caterham, but it carries 77 extra pounds. The power to weight ratio, including a driver is 2.6% better with the Caterham. More importantly, the Caterham is a more stable car. Obviously, it has an advantage of four wheels instead of three. It also has wider rubber and a CG that's closer to the center, closer to it's driving wheels, where as the front mounted engine of the Morgan puts its CG farther from its driving wheel. The Caterham is obviously going to be the quicker car.

      There's something about that Morgan, it's just so whacky and weird yet cool. love those pipes running down the sides and straight back. My choice would have to be the Morgan for just being better looking and more crazy at the same time.

      Those are the skinniest tires I've ever seen on a Caterham….they seem more suitable for a drift car. The Caterham also heels over way more than the Morgan and seems underpowered…it should have a Ford ecotec 3.5L turbo engine in it.

      Two of my favorite oddball rides. Watching the tire sidewall roll off at around the 29sec mark on the Morgan lap was frightening! The Morgan is seriously cool, but I'd probably have to stick with the Caterham if I were ever to purchase one. I'm fine with the "lowest-powered" option, still sounds great and seems a blast to drive. I'd like to try one with the new Ford EcoBoost triple -123 hp and 148 lb-ft of torque, fully dressed engine weight of only 214lbs. Let's see performance numbers on that!
