The Extreme Road-going Morgan Aero GT

Not only does it seem that the Morgan Motor Company has introduced the most extreme roadgoing vehicle model to date but they have taken all the lessons from Morgans GT3 race victories to mark the profound end of the Aero 8 production.

Limited to just eight examples, all of which have already been sold to existing Morgan customers, will be individually numbered and bespoke with customer-request features. The Aero GT is based upon the lightweight aluminium Aero 8 but with an all-new-worked, aerodynamically honed body which reduces drag while significantly increasing downforce. Every panel of this bespoke Aero GT is reworked by hand with new wing top louvers, notably deep side impressions and a drastic rear diffuser.

The car is fitted with a 367bhp 4.8 litre BMW V8 and six-speed manual gearbox, the Aero GT sprints from 0-62mph in 4.5 seconds, hitting a top speed of 170mph. Sadly this naturally aspirated BMW engine will no longer be in production.

In 2018 the final eight Aero 8 cars will roll out of Morgans Pickersleigh Road factory and the Aero GT will officially be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2018.
