Malvern Hills based Morgan is ending production of the iconic 3 Wheeler next year in 2021 after what will be 10 years on the market due to approval of the S&S V-twin engine. The company has produced over 2,500 3 Wheelers over the years and to celebrate the end, just 33 limited run examples will be produced.
The limited version will be called the P101 Edition and will cost £45,000, plus taxes and are available here in the UK as well as the rest of Europe and the US. However, all versions have already been allocated to the future buyers, so if you wanted one you may have to see if the buyers will sell one at some stage, albeit at a large markup no doubt. 14 of the 33 editions will remain in the UK however.
P101 was actually the original internal code name for the car back when the car was being developed.
To make the car more special, Morgan has added the option a handful of styling packs:
The Belly Tank – Referencing liveries found on belly tank racers and ‘lakesters’ that were inspirations for the 3 Wheeler initially, The Belly Tank graphic pack features a distressed effect in the vinyl.
The Dazzleship – The Dazzleship – featured in the launch film and images – is the boldest of the art packs. Its striking black and white design is inspired by the graphic camouflage of period military vehicles.
The Aviator – Evoking a sense of aviation spirit, The Aviator graphic pack is an extension of similar theme graphics offered on 3 wheelers. Inspired by nose art found on RAF planes in WWII.
The Race Car – Three wheeled Morgan vehicles were competing in motorsport almost as soon as the first example was created. The Race Car graphic pack features stripes and roundels, and pays homage to the liveries which have adorned by early Morgan race cars.
However, Morgan will be making another 3 Wheel model in the future, most likely electric given how things are going. The new P101 cars are already in production now.
“Production of the most recent 3 Wheeler has been a thrilling and exciting chapter in Morgan’s history. The introduction of the ‘current’ 3 Wheeler in 2011 proved to Morgan, and the world, that fun cars still have a place and that the ‘why not’ attitude is sometimes best.”
