Snapshot: Making its debut at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, Morgan Motor's Aero 8 is "the most refined Aero product to date." Boldly returning to an open-topped model, the newest rendition embraces adventure and the joy of driving.
From a bird’s eye view, the Aero 8 has been said to resemble a boat deck, which is all the more fitting because Morgan’s newest model is all about exploring the open roads and making the surroundings a part of the driving experience. Choosing to make the Aero 8 open topped, Morgan has created a car that celebrates the rush of driving in the open air accompanied with the ever desirable hum of the powerful V8 engine as it soars down the countryside.
The Aero 8 takes us back to the 60s with long, low shouldered shoulder lines, a short rear and dynamic curves. Taking after the iconic style of Morgan automobiles, the body is hand sculpted with a sense of artistry that seems to perfectly capture the air flow you’d imagine surrounds the car as it kicks into gear.
Sporting an aluminum chassis, top-of-the-line suspensions and raw power, it’s as responsive and agile as they come. Of course, there’s a sort of elegance juxtaposed with the aerodynamic, speedy design mixed with a touch of retro that makes the Aero 8 distinctly Morgan.
Fully customizable, the Aero 8 can be transformed into a coupe with an optional hard top if preferred, as each car is made to fit the driver’s desires. The interior is completely tailored to fit the driver’s expectations, as each Aero 8 is a one-of creation that recognizes the importance of comfort as a part of the driving experience. The model at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show showed off natural leather seating that stands out among the textured box woven carpet and wooden accents. Another prominent feature of the Aero 8 is its cleverly designed rear opening clam shell boot that dramatically opens to unveil the mohair hood.
Modern in both aesthetic and technological terms, the newest incarnation of the 15 year old model line shows us the evolution of the Aero 8 and the unique and exciting direction that Morgan Motor has decided to move in.
