A SPECIAL edition of the Morgan 3 Wheeler is to be produced by the Worcestershire car company to mark the end of production of its iconic model.

The P101 will be priced from £45,000 and only 33 examples will be produced in 2021 at the Morgan factory in Malvern.

P101 stands for Project 101, the internal name given to the project to revive the 3 Wheeler when development began more than a decade ago.

Production of the current model is ending as type approval of the S&S V-twin engine used in the model finishes.

Morgan says it is working on a successor to the 3 Wheeler and the new model is likely to be fully electric.

The current 3 Wheeler has been one of the company's most popular models, with more than 2,500 being made since its launch in 2011.

The P101 features a range of special components and bespoke detailing, many of which have been inspired by the design features of Morgan's three wheeled models.

A single-leaf tonneau cover - first seen on Morgan's EV3 concept in 2016 - has been used to exaggerate the asymmetrical theme, and is intended for single occupant use.

Aero-disc wheels are painted to match the main body colour and the exhausts are finished in a black and white coating. Other additions include torque markers on each front tyre, a fly screen, additional louvres, exposed rivet details, and bespoke P101 markings.

Steve Morris, chief executive of the Morgan Motor Company, said:"Production of the most recent 3 Wheeler has been a thrilling and exciting chapter in Morgan's history. The significance of the original Three Wheeler is undoubted, however the introduction of the ‘current' 3 Wheeler in 2011 proved to Morgan, and the world, that fun cars still have a place and that the ‘why not' attitude is sometimes best.

"The P101 celebrates the raw and stripped back nature of the 3 Wheeler, and provides us with the perfect opportunity to draw an incredible chapter of Morgan's history to a close. Once the 33 examples have been created, the opportunity for an exciting new chapter for three-wheeled Morgan vehicles begins."
