  • Hey guys, we're here on the beautiful

  • Angeles Crest Highway with a very special treat,

  • 3 three wheelers; the Polaris Slingshot,

  • the Vanderhall Speedster, and the Morgan 3 Wheeler.

  • They all have three wheels but they all are

  • very different from the other two.

  • I can't wait to see how they drive, let's go.

  • The first of our lot is the Vanderhall Venice Speedster.

  • In a weird way, this $27,000 speedster is the most

  • futuristic car of the group.

  • It's a turbo-boosted, 6-speed, automatic machine,

  • but it is relatively practical.

  • With large amounts of storage in the cockpit,

  • and it's perfect for cruising down the open road

  • for extended periods of time.

  • Not to incriminate myself, but I did have this puppy

  • cruising happily up past 90 miles per hour and

  • it didn't miss a beat.

  • In fact, it was almost dialed in too much.

  • You get the definite feeling that one wrong

  • flick of the wrist or misstep on the breaks

  • could get you into a very hairy situation

  • and this beast corners beautifully.

  • All in, it was my favorite one to drive of the group.

  • If you kind of like a futuristic yet retro-style

  • and you want something ideal for long cruises,

  • the Vanderhall is a great option.

  • Now for the second car of our lineup,

  • at just under $20,000, the Polaris Slingshot

  • has the least expensive starting price of the group,

  • but it comes with the most technology.

  • The minute you step inside you feel like

  • you could take this thing anywhere.

  • This is by far the fastest and most capable of any

  • on rough terrain or for the long haul.

  • It also comes with creature comforts like backup cameras,

  • cup holders, and a push-button start that is as easy to

  • activate as the clutch is to use.

  • This is a 5-speed, 3 Wheeler

  • with a car-like manual transmission.

  • It's paired with a 173 horsepower,

  • GM made, four-cylinder engine, and traction control systems

  • that make the Polaris the most like the modern car to drive,

  • but I have to admit, I just can't get past

  • the circus sideshow looks here,

  • that cartoonish body styling,

  • I really can't get into the idea of owning one.

  • And finally, the supermodel of the group,

  • the Special Edition Morgan 3 Wheeler, that we drove today

  • costs $80,000, but that is to be expected.

  • Each Morgan 3 Wheeler is hand-built in England

  • at the same factory that they built them in since 1914.

  • The beautiful detailing of the dashboard instruments,

  • the careful stitching on the leather seats,

  • and the intricate craftsmanship of the V Twin engine

  • at the front of the car, captivate from every angle.

  • Now, the Morgan is a manual vehicle,

  • the clutch is super tight and high,

  • there is no power steering, and the breaks feel wooden

  • and vague in the typical way

  • that you'd find any vintage car.

  • It really keeps you busy when you drive it,

  • but it is a true delight.

  • It's all very analog and real in that special way

  • that we rarely get these days, in a world dominated

  • with computer and cellphone screens.

  • The Morgan is by far the most raw and engaging drive

  • experience of the bunch.

  • Okay, so each of these cars is very different

  • and I use that term car as loosely, you know what I mean.

  • I have to admit I was extremely skeptical

  • about driving them, but each has it's own purpose.

  • For fast highway cruising, choose the Vanderhall.

  • For off-road excitement and a tech-laden experience,

  • hopefully away from anyone who can identify you,

  • choose the Polaris.

  • And for the true love of driving a beautiful machine,

  • choose the Morgan.

  • With any of these, you can have a lot of fun.

  • I guess it just goes to show that old saying is true,

  • "Don't knock it until you try it."

  • Whoa!

  • That was awesome!

Hey guys, we're here on the beautiful
