    American attempt to make a three wheeler by the name Aptera was not succesfull.

    I wonder why?

    Yet the Corbin is succesfull.

    Richard Hammond has stripped these cars of any credibility they might have had.

    Ahhh the Morgan three wheeler... an Icon of automotive beauty and design, only surpassed by the Trabant and Robin Reliant..

    On the first image, I would have put Doris Postlethwaite down as the driver if it was mine, I certainly wouldn't:-

    One: own up to it, and

    Two: advertise to that effect.

    I assume without having driven a 3-wheeler Morgan with 2 litre engine that with its 450 kg weight is has outstanding acceleration.
    It is also fairly safe.

    The Messerschmitt KR200 was a diminutive 3-wheel car.

    In fact the first 1909 and 7 hp engined Morgans were also very tiny.

    So all they have done is slap an upturned bath on it and called it the 2016 model?

    You could also say they have stayed true to their brand.

    Lotsa 3-wheelers are emerging like this Solo.

    Safe is a relative term. I don't think it has to pass any crash tests to be sold

    I see them almost every day as I work 300 metres from the factory.

    My father had a KR200. Frightening

    Morgan in action ; https://www.youtube.com/embed/dubVT6O9T14

    KR200 is 400 mm shorter and more narrow than a Morgan.

    If Henry Ford had made the first Model a three-wheeler we would all be driving them now. I estimate the 3-wheeler to be the ultimate weapon in flight against the AGW also known as the manmade climate change. It is very suitable for an electric vehicle like SAM above.

    That F300 is fantastic. The way all trikes should be, leaning into corners. Beautiful design and should be made compulsory if one wants to drive into a city. Small, sleek and intelligent. LOVE it.

    I also like it, but I assume a crossbreed with this is plausible. It would bring the price down.
