Morgan Says Goodbye to 3 Wheeler With P101 Editions

33 P101 models mark end of Morgan 3 Wheeler again

  • Available with four graphic packs

  • P101 name refers to 3 Wheeler rebirth project


Morgan Motor is saying farewell to the 3 Wheeler, but the current model is going out of production with a special. P101 is the name, celebrating the internal name of the project that brought the 3 Wheeler back to market more than a decade ago.

Impressively, the tiny automaker has built and sold more than 2,500 of the 3 Wheeler since it launched in 2011, with examples of the unmistakable car sold round the world. Production will cease next year when the type approval for the S&S V-twin engine that powers the car runs out.

The P101 will make up those last cars, limited to just 33 examples with four different designs available. All get a single-leaf tonneau cover designed to make them single-seaters, and the composite resin cover is a golden translucent share Morgan compares to 1970s race car engine shrouds. The aero disc wheels are painted in one of the two available body colours and work with the Hella spot lamps to help reduce turbulence around the suspension.

The twin-cylinder engine’s exhausts are ceramic coated in alternating black and white while straight cut tips, a fly screen, extra louvres and rivet detailing with P101 markings are all intended to “evoke the sense of excitement felt around the company when the original prototypes were being developed.”

Four design packs start with The Belly Tank, which wears distressed-effect vinyl that is a reference to the belly tank racers of the 1950s. The Dazzleship is the one in the photos, using a graphics pack inspired by dazzle camouflage used on ships in the first world war. The Aviator is inspired by RAF nose art, and is an extension of themes Morgan already offers on the Three, and lastly, The Race Car has stripes and roundels that are a homage to the original Morgan racers.

While the 3 Wheeler will be missed, Morgan says that it has plans for a new model, and that will be introduced after a break following the end of the current car.
