When you think Morgan, you think classic old school charm, heritage, beauty etc etc. But Morgan thinks otherwise. Its latest car teased, the new Aero GT model, has been developed using lessons learned from Morgan’s GT3 racing program. Powering the car will be a 4.8-liter BMW V-8 paired with a 6-speed manual transmission. The engine will match the standard Aero 8’s 367-bhp output, which Morgan says will see the Aero GT sprint from 0-100 kmph in 4.5 seconds and top out at 272 kmph.
The cars will mark the end of the Aero line, the company has confirmed. The first Aero 8 was unveiled at the 2000 Geneva motor show and ushered in a new era for the brand. The car featured a bold new design and more importantly lightweight aluminum construction. Just eight examples of the Aero GT will be built and all build slots have been sold.
