MORGAN 3 WHEELER

MORGAN 3 WHEELER

Designed to bring the fun and passion back to personal transport

When we talk about design then we must mention that the focus was set on making the car as close to an aeroplane as possible, while retaining handy extra space for driver, passenger and a hold-all in the rear.

Motor provides maximum power at minimum revs with an estimated 140 Newton metres of torque. The power train is a 1976cc ’V-twin’ fuel injected engine mated to a Mazda 5 speed (and reverse) gearbox. This provides smooth ‘get in and drive’ convenience with the thrill of extreme performance.
Mark Reeves, Morgan’s engineering chief, explains that the earliest cars were fitted with Suplex dampers, which didn’t have the angled track rod ends, but a replacement damper rode a bit higher, which gave an excitable reaction at the wheel.

The Heritage Bank Power Suit pays for your purchases

Heritage Bank donates all the money paid for the Power Suits to 4 ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorders) Kids. This actually means that the Power Suit, enables users of this wearable tech garment, to pay for purchases using their sleeves, and donate to a charitable organization at the same time.
