Special edition all-electric three-wheeler made in partnership with Selfridges will make its debut at the Salon Privé concours d'Elégance in September

The Morgan EV3 UK 1909 Edition has been revealed in partnership with Selfridges, priced from £52,500.

The 1909 Edition is described as a 'collector’s item' based on the all-electric three-wheeler EV3, which was revealed at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Only 19 examples will be made of the 1909, whose name signifies the year that both Morgan and Seldridges were established. The car will make its official public debut at the Salon Privé concours d'Elégance in September this year, before launching at Selfridge’s Birmingham store on 1 October.

Along with the car, a bespoke driving kit can be ordered, which has been designed in collaboration with nine other British brands. The kit is made in the UK and choices include a driving scarf designed by Alexander McQueen, driving goggles from Linda Farrow, and driving gloves by Dents.

The EV3 UK 1909 Edition comes in black with Selfridges bronze detailing as well as wood and treated aluminium throughout the interior.

This special edition has the same performance figures as the standard EV3 it’s based on, with a top speed of 90mph and an electric range of 120-150 miles.

The price for EV3 has not been revealed officially, but it is said to be similar to the current 3 Wheeler, which costs from £31,140.

A powered junior version of the EV3 UK 1909 Edition for children will also be available in the future, with more information released soon.

At apparently double the price of the standard version you would expect the detailing of the finish to be spot on, wouldn't you? Is the drive indicator plate above the drive selector shown in picture 3 really held in place on the dahboard by two slot-head screws of the kind available from any DIY store?

Whatever their origin you wouldn't expect to see those on the standard version, or come to that, on any current new car, would you? If screws must be used, and I fail to understand why, at least some nice hexagonal socket head cap type fasteners would improve the look. Or a dab of epoxy, or recessing the entire plate into the dashboard would be even better.

Oh goodness, are you suggesting using layman's epoxy, such as can be found at any general store? Unthinkable. And hexagons? The upper classes did away with hexagons in the 80s, darling. We have a new shape now you havent heard of.

For real though, it's fine, it's use-serviceable (unlike BONDING IT FOREVER) and what the hell does DIY stores selling them have to do with pedigree? You think they don't also sell hex screws? Get over yourself, dude. When you design a car, you can critique their hardware use.

22 July 2016
I like it, the screws don't bother me in the least bit if anything they suit the wood they're screwed into (I don't use nice hexagonal socket head cap type fasteners in my Oak dressing table). OK it's there's naff bits (optional) like the gloves etc but then there's certain modern cars that have their name protected using the puddle lights (SEAT).
