5th Generation Morgan Aero 8 Model available at London Morgan
Introducing the 5th Generation of the iconic Morgan Aero 8 model, the most refined Morgan Aero product to date, which will be able to order from London Morgan, the official London dealer of the Morgan Motor Company, from Autumn 2015.
“London Morgan is extremely excited to be bringing the Aero 8 to the capital. The new Aero 8 perfectly embodies our fusion of British heritage, contemporary design and bespoke craftsmanship, and we certainly anticipate the car’s sophisticated character to encapture the attention of London’s cultural, cosmopolitan individuals”. – London Morgan Dealer Principal, Anthony Barrell.
Influenced by classic open cars from the 1960s, the exterior of the new Aero 8 reflects a trend of long, fast and low shoulder lines and cabin focused body work with the view from above echoing that of a boat deck, enhancing the sense of adventure and escapism. A dramatic rear opening clam shell boot is used to both tension and hide the new double-lined mohair hood.
Occupants are seated low in the vehicle, which in turn enables a sleek roof line and balanced vehicle proportions. An optional hardtop is also available that transforms the car into a coupé with ease.
At the forefront of the design process has been enhancing the passenger experience with new dashboard arrangements, real wood surrounds, textured box-woven carpets and fine leather trim enhance the new interior. Optional touch screen media systems, low slung carbon seats and bespoke detailing packs add to Morgan’s already extensive options list.
In addition, the introduction of a new air conditioning system ensures that the car is more usable in warmer climates, a reflection of Morgan’s expansion into new markets across the globe.
The aluminium chassis benefits from improved torsional stiffness, a revised front end, all new suspension, anti-roll bars and a new BMW limited slip differential. The driver benefits from a more responsive and better handling sports car. ABS (with EBD), power steering, cruise control and airbags add further passenger convenience and safety.
The Aero 8 is the most refined Aero product to date, providing a fitting evolution of Morgan’s most technologically advanced range of vehicles. Morgan tailors every car to align with the customer’s personal vision. With infinite combinations of paint, leather and a vast array of detail choices, every Aero built will be a one-off.
“Morgan cars are synonymous with open top motoring. We produce 2-seater sports cars that are lightweight and exhilarating to drive. The new Aero 8 signifies a return to this formula within our flagship range of vehicles. The Aero 8 offers the perfect marriage of fine craftsmanship and performance technology, one that we believe is so important in today’s increasingly autonomous world.” – Morgan Managing Director, Steve Morris.
The Aero 8 entered production in Q4 2015 with limited production numbers available. The car is available to order from London Morgan and will be retailed at £66,500 (plus VAT).
