The two most exciting new cars of the year are now but weeks away.

No, not the Global Motors T-Type, the new company/ family car to be sold in 180 countries in five bodystyles with 17 powertrains and becoming the most important new model of 2022.

Nor the Fandalgini Spectaculum, the limited-edition, £1.5 million, 1000bhp hypercar that laps the Nürburgring faster than a Porsche 956.

Instead, my tastes are a little more modest and, well, you might say parochial, but I will say relevant. For me, the year’s two most exciting upcoming cars are the Toyota GR86 and the Morgan Super 3.

The GR86 is one that we already know quite a lot about. Colleagues have driven it and say it picks up from where the car it replaces, the Toyota GT86, left off.

Which, given that was my favourite car of the past decade, sounds about perfect. It has a modest engine size, modest power, a manual gearbox and rear-wheel drive, and you can switch things off to enjoy its even chassis balance. In short, where do I sign?

The Super 3, though, the replacement for the Morgan 3 Wheeler, is hoping to do rather more than its predecessor, even though it might not look like it.

The 3 Wheeler, whose design originated in the US, felt like a classic from the moment it first turned a wheel. Which was, I suppose, kind of the point.
