Aero Cars

The Aero 8 is is the first new Morgan design since 1948. It is also the first Morgan vehicle with an alloy chassis and frame as opposed to traditional Morgan vehicles ("trads") that have an aluminum skinned wooden body tub on a flexing steel chassis.

Production of the Aero 8 commenced in 2002. The engine first powering the Aero 8 was a 4400 cc V8 built by BMW mated to a 6-Speed Getrag transmission. From 2008, the Aero 8 featured the 4.8 BMW engine with an optional automatic transmission. All Aero 8s are assembled at Morgan's Malvern Link factory.

Due to its light weight, yet very strong race tested aluminium structure, the Aero 8 weighs only 1145 kg. This results in its scintillating performance (zero to 100 km/h in less than 4.5 seconds), low emissions and low fuel consumption, considering the performance available.
