Morgan 3 Wheeler fun on a kart track

We spent some quality time with the Morgan 3 Wheeler. Naturally, the only place we could take it was a kart track.

Like the original Morgan 3 Wheelers, the new one is powered by a motorbike engine.

Room for two in the M3W. Two really close friends.

The engine produces a diminutive 110bhp, but ...

... because it weighs so little you can crack 0-62mph in less than five seconds. It'll do 120mph, too. If you're brave.

There's a tailpipe for either side of the car. They get very hot.

These wheels may look delicate, but they're rather robust.

It may seem like an unnecessary warning, but the 2.0-litre V-twin does get hot.

The only way to be seen driving a 3 Wheeler. If you're Alex, that is.

Fun fact: The M3W's starter button is the same one you'll find on a Eurofighter.

Its one drive wheel does like to spin.

Nothing like a full-bore V-twin start to wake the senses.

There is no weather protection, so if you do take one out in the rain wear a big coat.

You'd be surprised just how quickly you can tackle corners in an M3W.

Once the rear loses a bit of grip, prepare to recover one of the most sedate slides around.

WW1 pilot Albert Ball likened driving a Morgan 3 Wheeler to flying.

We can see what he means -- it's windy, enclosed, and a riot!

Morgan paid special attention to detail, ensuring everything on the 3 Wheeler is just so.

It may cost £30,000 before you put any toys on it, but the fun it offers is certainly worth it.
