Morgan to Bring Back the Threewheeler in 2011

The automotive industry is constantly evolving, bring us new cars that come with futuristic designs and offer us a ride into the future. However, there are certain classic concepts that can never be forgotten and car enthusiasts are more than willing to see them come back to life.

Now, Morgan is here to quench this thirst for retro automotive creations. The British company is announcing the revival of its iconic Threewheeler. We are talking about an icon that sits at the core of the brand, a car that was the starting point for Morgan and was manufactured from 1909 to 1953.

The vehicle delivered an interesting mix between sheer driving pleasure, both on the road an on racetracks, with a high level of fuel efficiency, mainly coming from its lightness.
