Morgan 3 Wheeler Gulf Edition - profile

We love the classic baby blue and orange Gulf livery as much as anyone, but when everything from the Tata Nano to a DeLorean and even a racing-grade semi truck (okay, the semi is pretty cool...) is painted in the scheme, it might be time to give it a rest. With perhaps one notable exception: this Gulf Edition Morgan 3 Wheeler.

Not only does Morgan have a legitimate racing relationship with Gulf Oil in Le Mans-class racing, we just so happen to love the Morgan 3 Wheeler more than almost anything else on wheels... no matter what hue it's painted. Combine the two and you've got us drooling.

Morgan will build 100 commemorative Gulf Edition 3 Wheeler models, with a starting price of 29,162.50 pounds (plus Value Added Tax) in the UK – that's around CAD$44,700. We're not sure how many examples will make it to North America, but if we happened to be in the market for an in-your-face adrenaline rush on three wheels, we'd have our friendly neighborhood on speed dial.

Check out the high-res image gallery above, and don't forget the press release below.
3 WHEELER - GULF EDITION


The Morgan Nissan LMP2 built by Oak Racing has an open-cockpit and is an extreme sports car. Built specifically to race in the World Endurance Championship for Sports Cars it is the ultimate car in which an amateur can pit his skill against the professionals. Backed by an established team the amateur trains with pro race drivers.The races are at Le Mans for the 24 hours as well as Sebring, Silverstone, Spa and many new tracks built for Formula One. In sports car racing many drivers prefer an open cockpit vehicle over a coupe. This is because of a superior sense of speed and vision. The driver can develop a much closer bond with the car and feels safer because he can be more in control. This is synonymous with Morgan's attitude toward creating vehicles that provide both high performance and fun. The feeling is encapsulated by the familiar saying, "to drive by the seat of your pants".
