3-Wheeler Gulf revealed


What do the Ford GT40, McLaren F1, Porsche 917, Aston Martin DBR9 and Morgan 3-Wheeler have in common? Well, thanks to a new limited range from Morgan, the latter joins the rest as another vehicle that looks fabulous painted in the Gulf Oil colours.

Limited to just 100 units, the 3-Wheeler Gulf Edition is inspired by Morgan's Le Mans Prototype, which races in the iconic colours.

Price of nostalgia is £29,000

In addition to the sky blue and orange paintwork, the 3-Wheeler Gulf Edition features orange-walled tyres and some new badging inside and out. The interior is largely identical to the regular car, albeit with some orange stitching on the steering wheel.

Mechanically, the Gulf Edition is unchanged any other 3-Wheeler. This means its 1990cc V-twin produces 115hp and 100lb ft, all of course sent to that solitary rear wheel.

The Morgan 3-Wheeler Gulf Edition will be sold at £29,162.50 plus VAT; call it £35,000. With the standard car available from £25,000 plus VAT, a large premium is certainly being attached by Morgan to a colour scheme. However, its limited edition status may also be used to justify some of the additional cost. And let's face it, if the 3-Wheeler appeals as a concept, why wouldn't you want a Gulf Edition?

    Really?!?

    The MOG's color scheme, yes,
    The SuperDry's color scheme, why not,
    The Gulf's color scheme, where is the motorsport historical link between morgan and gulf???

    Instead of playing with paintbushes, they should develop a MOG motorsport 3 wheelers why upgrade power, suspensions, FIA rollbar/cage so that three wheeler fanatics can push the car limits on track and eventually race the thing...
    A Shelsley Walsh (or Prescott) hillclimb limited edition would be just perfect.

    Driving down to Classic LeMans this year we were passed by one of these. The driver had a huge smile on his face as he went by. Only time I've ever seen one on the road.

    It looks especially good in these colours. (never a fan of the spitfire-alike look)

    Gulf is just an iconic livery with really no need for previous link, it's an ideal car for the LeMans hoon brigade.
