The success of the Morgan Motor Company, a British motor car manufacturer was originally founded on an icon, the Morgan Three-Wheeler, which with its simple, elegant design by master auto-engineer and company’s founder Henry Frederick Stanley ‘Harry’ Morgan became one of the most successful lightweight cars in its class of the early days of motoring. This classic ride, a perfect mix of British and American technology, which is neither a motorcycle nor a proper car, and comes with one wheel fewer than normal cars, was officially re-launched last year with an aim to bring the fun and passion back to personal transport. And the fact that US talk-show host and renowned car collector Jay Leno bought one of the new Morgan Three-Wheeler last year makes it apparent that there’s still a market for a car like this. And considering the demand, the Morgan Motor Company has now launched a $46,700 Morgan 3 Wheeler ‘Gulf Edition’ in the striking Gulf Oil livery, showcasing the Morgan’s participation in the 24 Hours of Le Mans with OnOak Racing.
Notably, this Gulf Edition Morgan, limited to just 100 commemorative vehicles, has been dressed in the exact Blue-and-Orange paint scheme that represented the world-renowned Gulf Oil, as to represent its name Gulf Edition.
Beside this obvious two-color Gulf livery, the Morgan 3-Wheeler Gulf Edition also boasts a number of unique details, including blacked out engine details, the roll hoops, the headlamps, limited edition badge and embossed leather, black dashboard panel, the exhausts, and the special exhaust heat shields.
Further, the ride was given the Orange wall tires, orange stitching on steering wheel, special Gulf graphic pack, to pay homage to the name it’s carrying.
