Morgan Brooklands Edition Roadster and Brooklands Edition 3 Wheeler

Say the word “Brooklands” and every British car fan perks an ear in your direction.  For those who don’t know, the Brooklans racing circuit was the brilliant idea of Hugh Lock-King and opened on 17 June 1907 as the first-ever purpose-built banked race track in the world.  One-hundred feet wide and two-and-three-quarter miles long, the Brooklands’ oval had banks that hit a height of nearly thirty feet.  Some serious British racing history in the word Brooklands.

So, it stands to reason that the new Morgan Brooklands Edition Roadster and Brookland Edition 3 Wheeler have a lot to live up to.  The run of 50 units each really do “celebrate the ancestry of British racing cars and their styling” in satin finishes, plenty of rivets and the traditional Jaguar “Brooklands” green.

The Morgan 3.7 liter V6 Roadster sports a paint scheme equivalent to a tweet jacket and vest in Jaguar “Brooklands” green with a Speed Silver Satin hood, A-pillars and window surrounds.  Black leather and plenty of aluminum (sorry, aluminium) adorn the spartan interior.  Cost… right around £40,000 (about $62,000) plus tax and what options you decide to add from below.  I would opt for the “Black Pack” and polished aluminum bonnet and cowl.  Just saying.

The 3 Wheeler gets the same green treatment unless you opt for an all polished finish with loads more rivets.  The Union Jack bonnet bad, intercom system and heated seats are a must, especially the heated seats.

Press Release
Brooklands Edition Roadster and 3 Wheeler
The Brooklands circuit was the brainchild of Hugh Locke-King, and was opened on 17 June 1907 as the first purpose-built banked motor race circuit in the world.

Requirements of speed and spectator visibility led to the Brooklands track being built as a 100 ft (30 m) wide, 2.75 miles (4.43 km) long, banked oval. The banking was nearly 30 feet (9 m) high in places. In addition to the oval, a bisecting “Finishing Straight” was built, increasing the track length to 3.25 miles (5.23 km), of which 1.25 miles (2.01 km) was banked. It could host up to 287,000 spectators in its heyday.

Along the centre of the track ran a dotted black line, known as the Fifty Foot Line. By driving over the line, a driver could theoretically take the banked corners without having to use the steering wheel.

Brooklands was more than a great sporting arena. Brooklands was the birthplace of British motorsport and aviation, home of Concorde and the site of many engineering and technological achievements throughout eight decades of the 20th century.

These Limited edition Brooklands inspired Morgans have been designed to celebrate the ancestry of British racing cars and their styling. An unusual arrangement of classic colour-ways, black detailing, and satin finishes are both in vogue and visible on cars of the era. The cars focus on using the options currently available on a Morgan car in a cost effective manner.

Only 50 of each the Brooklands Roadster 3.7l V6 and 3 Wheeler vehicles will be buiilt. Each car includes a limited edition numbered dash plaque, an array of cost options, a Brooklands centenary book, and an annual membership to the Brooklands trust.
