The Morgan 3-Wheeler Your Kids Can Enjoy

Want a Morgan 3-Wheeler but can’t see how to get the kids in?  Then buy them their own — with the Morgan 3-Wheeler pedal car.

Aping the looks of the full-scale car introduced earlier this year, the pedal car will fit children from six to 13 years old and gets a mock V-twin engine mounted at the front, working lights, a polished radiator and size exhaust and comes in red with hand stitched black vinyl seats.  Incredibly, its two thirds the size of the real thing and hand built at the Malvern factory to the same standards as all Morgans — even the louvres are hand formed.

The cars are pedal powered. obviously, and chain driven with three forward gears and a brake that operates on the rear wheel.  Performance figures aren’t given — they are dependent on the strength of the child — but emissions are zero CO2, making this car eligible for free VED and immunity from the London congestion charge…

Options include any one of eight solid colours with a full saddle brown or black leather interior.  In fact, Morgan will do it any any colour and with any leather if you wish.

If daddy — or mummy — got the grown-ups 3-Wheeler than you could perhaps get them both done in RAF inspired colours and start your own squadron.  Should you have forgotten about the full-size one, it looks the same (half as big again) but is powered by a 1.8 litre V-Twin motorcycle engine with 100bhp, good for a top speed of 115mph and 0-60mph in 4.5 seconds.

It all sounds the stuff of childhood dreams, but it comes at a price — £3,012.  But that’s around a tenth of the price of the real thing.  Just 500 will be built and it’s on sale now.
