Geneva motor Show 2018: Morgan displays it finest set of retromobiles

Morgan, the erstwhile British retro-carmaker, has come to Geneva with a bang. The Morgan stall features two cars – the Plus 8 50th Anniversary Edition and the most extreme version of the Aero for now, the Aero GT. 

The Plus 8 was launched back in 1968 and has been one of the highest selling Morgans till date. The 50th Anniversary edition is powered by the 4.8-litre naturally aspirated V8 motor from BMW and is the lightest V8 passenger car in the world. With only 50 examples to be built, the display car in Geneva is painted in the classic British blue, reminiscing the first production model. It gets yellow accents on the grille and on the rear fender and the 50th Anniversary badge on the front fender.

The other Morgan is based on the Aero 8 and is said to be the most extreme Aero to be built by Morgan. Obviously, this too is powered by the BMW V8 and only eight examples of this will be built. The best part is, you can opt for one with a six-speed manual gearbox and with 367bhp on tap for a car weighing just 1200kg, it will turn out to be a more than a handful. Dubbed the GT, this Aero gets its classic louvres fine-tuned for better aerodynamics and you can also opt for a carbon-fibre roof with the retro-rear-facing breather vent.
