As part of the Morgan Motor Company’s celebration of one hundred years of continuous manufacture of motorcars they have released the Morgan Aero SuperSports – a limited edition lightweight aluminium sports car with a luxurious specification.
The convertible makes use of two aluminium detachable roof panels. These can either turn the car effectively in to a coupe or when detached bring fresh air to the driving experience without undue wind disturbance to spoil the journey. The panels can be stored conveniently in the boot.
The car benefits from the lightweight aluminium Aero chassis which is adhesively bonded for rigidity. This chassis is combined with the aluminium 4.8 litre BMW V8 engine as seen in the Aero and a choice of 6 speed automatic or manual gearboxes.
Charles Morgan, Grandson of the 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 due to enter production in early 2010. A deposit of £25,000 (GBP) is required to ensure the supply of one of these exciting new models. It is anticipated to cost around £127,000 (GBP) including tax.
