Tri-Star: the Morgan three-wheeler
A classic British sports car plus a venerable American engine minus a wheel equals fun times ahead
Posted: 12 Oct 2011
The trouble with truly vintage cars is that they tend to be precious, and that encourages caution. The trick with the new 3Wheeler is - although it looks venerable - it should be driven everywhere like a total mental. Accelerate hard, commit to roundabouts, arrive everywhere in a cacophony. Rev pointlessly, and double-declutch the upchange for no reason other than it feels good to hear that engine pop and bang. And because this isn't some £100k piece of near-irreplaceable history (the basic 3Wheeler is £25k, plus VAT), you feel that you can. You can fire it up and use it as God intended - hard.
