…seats two occupants in a traditional-type motoring environment that makes extensive use of Connolly leather and bare aluminum. A BMW 4.4-liter V-8 generates 325 horsepower and works with a Getrag six-speed-manual gearbox. The Aero 8 weighs a mere 2,200 pounds and with its favorable power-to-weight ratio, the Aero 8 reaches 60 mph in only 4.2 seconds and runs the quarter in 12.7 seconds at 110 mph. Handling is equally impressive. Despite its thoroughly up-to-date performance, Morgan did manage to endow the Aero 8 with some neo-vintage charm and—because only 50 or so of the roadsters will be sold in the U.S.—give it some undeniable cachet! This car is a race proven, instant classic!
