50% Motorcycle + 50% Car = 100% Awesome

Morgan, a British car company, originally built these cycle cars from 1919 thru 1939. To avoid taxes the then British government imposed on cars, Morgan designed and built this three wheel configuration as it was classified as a motorcycle.  The original was powered by a v-twin motorcycle engine, and this new interpretation is no different. Power is supplied by a 115 horsepower v-twin mated to a Mazda 5 speed gearbox.  What does that mean?  It means that this light little pocket rocket is ready for you to just hop in an drive, and judging by it's size, driven fast.  Morgan will see fit to make the cycle/car bespoke with a variety of paint and interior options, but we can't see anything better than this WWII fighter plane livery.  The one downside: looks like it's only available for purchase in the British least for now.
