Default New Morgan Aero SuperSports with BMW V8: High-Res Photos and Details





Quote:
The wraps are off Morgan's limited-run flagship model, the Aero Supersports that's destined to make its world debut at this weekend's Concorso d'Eleganza at Villa d'Este in Northern Italy. Designed and engineered in house, the Morgan Aero SuperSports is a lightweight aluminum sports car with two removable roof panels that infuses 'old-school' British styling with modern touches and technology.

Like the 2008 Aeromax Coupe, upon which it is based, the Aero Supersports is powered by a 367HP 4.8 litre BMW V8 engine that comes with a choice of 6 speed automatic or manual gearboxes.



C
harles Morgan, Grandson of the company's founder said "The Morgan Aero SuperSports is a luxurious flamboyant sports car which also remains true to Morgan's philosophy of lightweight minimalist simplicity. It is a celebration of our love of cars and the romance of travel and is a fitting model to announce during Morgan's Centenary year."

The new Aero Super Sports is set to enter a limited run production of about 200 units in early 2010 with an anticipated price of around 127,000 including VAT, which comes to about US$185,000 or 142,000 with the current exchange rates. Those interested to get in line for one will have to place a deposit of 25,000 or US$36,500 - 28,000.

I think they have done a very good job designing it. It looks like a nice updated version of its predecessors.



It is something different and I actually like it.
