Morgan Super 3

As an antidote to my EV enjoyment...
Morgan's put up their configurator for their Super 3.

I kinda miss the big engine hanging off the front, but it's still a charmer.

Sooooo fun!

Too bad I'm saving up for our EV... whatever that is... whenever it gets here.  :(

Don't worry. The way things go, I'd assume there'd be a 5 year wait for one of these even if you placed an order now.

And honestly, I really just want the thing for like 3 days a year. I gotta see if someone around here is interested in investing in one just for Turo. Hmmm...

I don't know. Does this remind anybody else of these 17-year cicadas?  Shape, black body, little red eyes, "things" sticking out. (Probably not if you don't live where those things pop out of the ground by the billions every 17 years.)

It does have a sort of insect-like look.  While I do think the original 3-wheel Morgans (with the V-engine up front) are interesting looking, for somethgin modern I would rather choose one of these (or something similar).



Retro Morgan is cute Ed, but I don't understand why you posted it in a model railroad Product Discussion section.  Shall I move it for you?   :trollface:

I don't know Pete, I think these just look so much cooler than those Slingshots.

Speaking of ... https://www.wsupercars.com/wallpapers/morgan/2023-morgan-super-3/

Oh, and why here? They're tiny like models!

Agreed! The Slingshots just look weird for weird's sake. They are over-the-top, contrived "LOOK AT ME!" machines that barely have the wherewithal to get out of their own way. The two I regularly see around here are driven by... never mind, very non-PC to say so. I'll just say they're folks that wouldn't know which side of the table setting the salad fork goes on.   :trollface:

I'm not into motorcycles, but I would pick that Morgan over a Slingshot every day of the week.

What's a salad fork?  And, what is it used for, anyway?  :trollface:

Oh come on guys; are you going to say that this new Morgan isn't a "look at me, I'm retro-super-cool dude" kind of a vehicle?  Oh phleese!

I hate the interior. It should have analog looking classic gauges not digital.

That Morgan's pretty cool but if you'd like the motorcycle feel and want to go fast, just do it.  No need to reinvent. 8)  These things actually do go fast!  The 600's can get you into the 160's and the 1000's can get you 180+!  (That's MPH)

The Morgan is cool. I dont get the purpose of those Slingshots, a KTM Xbow is a better drivers car that you can actually drive at the limit
Which ever side of the track I am on is the right side.
