Morgan revealed the first pictures of their latest model, the Aero Coupe.
Granted, it’s hard to see what’s new in this car just by looking at it. But then that’s how Morgans always looked. Even the exotic AeroMax looks pretty much the same as this. You should be glad it’s not squinting!
The car is based on the Aero GT3 race car and is made almost entirely out of aluminum. It also has a stiff aluminium chassis and is hand-assembled in Malvern Hills by Morgan’s highly skilled craftsmen. Morgan says the new closed roof design will give you a more comfortable car, and more security.
The cabin is also retro-looking, but it has modern features and excellent craftsmanship. Ash hardwood surrounding the cockpit and doors can be hand polished in a colour of your choosing. The controls are luxurious to touch. The leather work is stitched with twin needles and combined with suede effect panels for contrast and a dynamic sporty feel.
The Aero Coupe is powered by a 4.7 liter BMW V8 and has a six speed automatic transmission. It can operate in two Sport and Auto modes to deliver the 320bhp output to the rear wheels. Under ideal circumstances the car does 0 to 60mph in 4.5 seconds and reaches a top speed of 170 mph (273 km/h).
The fact is, only a Morgan lover will see the appeal of this car. We respect Morgan’s heritage, and the passion behind the cars they make.
