Morgan has released a single teaser image, declaring that its new “supercar” will be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show.

The shadowy image appears to show the front end of an Aero Coupe or an Aero Super Sports, but beyond that, Morgan is giving nothing away.

So the main clue lies in the “supercar” mention, perhaps indicating the new model will be the fastest or most powerful (or both) yet for the British car-craftsmen.

The Aero already uses a 4.8 litre V8 engine sourced from BMW, with an output of around 275kW.

Expect a boost to this figure if an Aero Supercar is indeed on the cards, but beyond this guess, we can only speculate.

Something that isn’t speculation is news surrounding Morgan’s 3 Wheeler, which is set to arrive in the carmaker’s sole Australian showroom soon.

Morgan Australia says the car had to “grow a ‘mo’” before being granted citizenship, and that the process of getting it here took nearly four years.

But it’s here now, with a starting price of $90,000 plus on-road costs.

The 3 Wheeler is powered by a 1983cc V-twin air-cooled engine making 62kW/140Nm, with power going to its single rear wheel via a Mazda-sourced five-speed manual transmission.

While 62kW might not seem much, the 3 Wheeler weighs a mere 525kg, and can hit 100km/h from rest in six seconds on its way to a top speed of 185km/h.

Stay tuned to TMR for more on Morgan’s mystery supercar, and all the news from the Geneva Motor Show.
