Morgan Super 3 Malle Rally Special £54,995, Comes With Overcoat

Posted on

Malle is a British company that makes outdoor clothing and coordinates motorcycle adventures around the world. The business operates on a “Prepare To Be Lost” philosophy. Morgan Motor Company partnered with the brand to create the Morgan Super 3 Malle Rally Special. The model costs the equivalent of $70,497 (54,995 British pounds).

The tweaked Morgan Super 3 features a yellow, red, or black body and has graphics inspired by topographic maps of Malle’s favorite British mountain roads. Nose cone, roll hoop and wide exhaust. Buyers can choose a number for rounding on each side. Amenities include heated seats, footwell lights, USB charging outlets and even cupholders. The exterior has step guards and panniers.

Purchasers of this special edition receive entry in Malle’s week-long adventures in Great Britain, the Alps or the North Pole. For example, a journey through Great Britain includes a route of 1,500 miles from the southern tip of the island to the highest peak. The Alpine trip passes through six European countries over six days.

Additionally, the Malle Rally Special comes with an opportunity for buyers to visit Morgan’s headquarters in Malvern, England, to see Super 3 production.

Shoppers also get the Morgan x Malle clothing collection. Clothing includes a British waxed canvas jacket 10 oz with neck storm baffle, GPS headphone port, and lots of pockets. Coats can attach to matching knee pads to keep warm in the roofless Super 3. Available in Sand or Black.

Morgan plans to offer the new Super 3 in the United States, though not a Malle Rally Special edition. Prices there start at $53,938. Power comes from a Ford-sourced 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine rather than the previous V-twin. Output is now 118 horsepower and 110 pound-feet instead of the 82 hp and 103 lb-ft of the previous powerplant.

Morgan took the five-speed manual transmission from the Mazda MX-5 Miata.

This powertrain allows the Super 3 to reach 62 miles per hour in 7.0 seconds and reach a top speed of 130 mph.

The US-spec Super 3 looks different from the European version. It adopted center-mounted headlights, and federal requirements led to changes to the taillights, turn signals, and reflectors.
