Budding automotive gearheads (along with a few of us here at Autoblog HQ) have one more piece of pedal car hotness to add to their Holiday wishlists: a new 2/3rd scale trike from Morgan. In the modern era, this classic British sportscar manufacturer offers a series of old-school four-wheelers complete with wooden substructures hewn from ash, but Morgan's early years focused on three-wheeled cyclecars that used V-Twin motorcycle engines mounted right in front of the grille and powering the two front wheels. Founded in 1909, Morgan Motor Company is celebrating its first 100 years in business by offering a limited edition run of these SuperSport Junior mini trikes.
Scheduled for production in August of 2009, Morgan's new pedal car has a price tag of £2,510 – about $3,700 in the States – and only 500 will be produced. The entire human-powered vehicle is made from only the highest quality materials, including a non-functional aluminum engine up front – just like the classic Grand Prix model from the early 1900s. A quick glance at the images in our gallery below already has us pondering what it would take to adapt a little Briggs & Stratton in its place.
