The 2012 Morgan Three-Wheeler is a unique and iconic vehicle that hearkens back to a bygone era of motoring. Its history and creation are deeply rooted in the rich heritage of the Morgan Motor Company, a British automotive manufacturer known for producing handcrafted and unique vehicles. The roots of the Morgan Three-Wheeler trace back to the early 20th century when the company’s founder, H.F.S. Morgan, designed and built his first three-wheeled vehicle in 1909. This original model was known as the Morgan Runabout and featured a lightweight design and a V-twin engine mounted at the front. Its unconventional appearance and impressive performance helped it gain popularity among the motoring enthusiasts of the time.

Over time, the Morgan Three-Wheeler underwent several iterations and improvements. However, the design remained consistent, combining a unique blend of vintage aesthetics with modern engineering. The production of the three-wheeler would cease in 1953, as the company set its sights on manufacturing four-wheeled vehicles. Fast forward to 2011 and the Morgan Motor Company revived the Three-Wheeler concept, reintroducing it to the modern automotive landscape at the Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland. With a good showing and warm welcome from the public, the Morgan Three-Wheeler would go back into production.

Much like its predecessors, building this 2012 Morgan Three-Wheeler was a meticulous process that combined traditional coachbuilding techniques with modern engineering practices. The body panels were hand-formed from aluminum, showcasing a seamless blend of vintage curves and modern aerodynamic considerations. Exposing the tubular chassis and suspension components added to the vehicle's raw and mechanical aesthetic. Planted at the front of the vehicle is the lifeline, a 2.0-litre air-cooled V-twin motor that produces 82 horsepower. Combined with its smooth five-speed manual gearbox and lightweight 1,157-lb body, this open-air British Roadster can reach a top speed of 115 miles per hour, more than enough to satisfy one's needs.

The interior of this 2012 Morgan embraces a minimalist, yet comfortable, approach. Classic light tan leather seats, a traditional dashboard, and a distinct “moto-lita” steering wheel blended vintage charm with ergonomic functionality. Despite its compact size, this Morgan is a surprisingly practical vehicle for longer journeys and one that will attract attention the entire way. Accompanying the sale of this Morgan is a tonneau cover, a "Morgan 3" car cover designed for this car, and its original owner's manual.

Today, the 2012 Morgan Three-Wheeler stands as a testament to the enduring appeal of classic motoring. It serves as a reminder of a time when driving was a visceral and immersive experience, and it remains a beloved symbol of automotive craftsmanship and passion.
