Morgan 3 Wheeler recognised at Autocar Stars Event
Morgan Managing Director, Steve Morris, collects award for Morgan 3 Wheeler at first Autocar Stars Event following 5 star review.
Representatives from Morgan were proud to attend the first ever Autocar Stars event at the Hurlingham Club on Thursday 8th May. The event was held to celebrate and recognise the best of the motoring industry and to award those manufacturers whose vehicles had received a 5 star rating from Autocar.
Chas Hallett, Autocar Brand Editor, said We have decided to award every manufacturer who has received a five star road test verdict for a car currently on sale. Autocar road tests are the toughest and most thorough in the business and getting full marks is a rare and distinguished achievement.
Both the 2011 Morgan 3 Wheeler and updated 2014 Morgan 3 Wheeler received a rare 5 star review from the weekly motoring magazine. The Morgan 3 Wheeler is regarded as the top lightweight by Autocar, with Chief Road Tester Matt Prior exclaiming that it is quite possibly the most fun thing that any car manufacturer produces today. Morgan were 1 of just 8 manufacturers, including Porsche, Ferrari and McLaren, to be recognised with 5 stars and receive an award at the event.
Steve Morris, Morgan Managing Director, said I am immensely proud to receive the award for the Morgan 3 Wheeler from Autocar on behalf of the craftsmen and women at Morgan. The Autocar road test is well known for being the most thorough there is and for us to have been awarded 5 stars is a testament to the passion and commitment from those back in Malvern. The Morgan 3 Wheeler has been well received by global press since we reintroduced it in 2011 and I believe 5 stars and the award from Autocar represents the pinnacle of that recognition.
