Morgan is celebrating the end of production for it’s craziest model – the bonkers 3 Wheeler. The Malvern-based company has launched a special edition version priced from £45,000 to commemorate the event.
Just 33 examples of the P101 will be built for the global market, nearly all of them have already been snapped up by eager collectors.
Morgan also confirmed a ‘new’ version will return in a year or two but his time the can is expected to be be powered by batteries.
P101 stands for Project 101, the internal name given to the project to revive the 3 Wheeler when development began more than a decade ago.
The current 3 Wheeler has been one of the company’s most popular models of all time, with more than 2,500 examples built since its launch in 2011. The car is exported to all corners of the globe, and has received countless motoring accolades from across the industry.
Morgan CEO Steve Morris, said: “Production of the most recent 3 Wheeler has been a thrilling and exciting chapter in Morgan’s history. The significance of the original Three Wheeler is undoubted, however 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.
“The P101 celebrates the raw and stripped back nature of the 3 Wheeler, and provides us with the perfect opportunity to draw an incredible chapter of Morgan’s history to a close. Once the 33 examples have been created, the opportunity for an exciting new chapter for three-wheeled Morgan vehicles begins.”
