I'll stuff this Morgan in here...expensive toy definitely not bargain basement. The motoring journo's and youtubers seem to like it though plenty positive reviews and satisfies the need for wind in the hair and a parp-ey vroom vroom sound somehow manipulated from a Ford 3 cylinder engine.

If you have a peek at the pics here Vic, I think its a Boom Mustang Family ST1 Trike, and the surprising thing, the example here is powered by a Peugeot 1.6ltr engine and its an auto.

Your picture was good enough for Google Image search to come up with some suggestions without too much effort or previous knowledge from me!. Boom trikes were built in Germany, but some doubt as to whether they are still in business.
