2016 Morgan Aero 8 £105,000
There is no car like a Morgan. Every model harks back to 1930s designs and captures the vintage elegance of pre-war classics, combined with modern-day finesse and convenience. The Aero 8 is a perfect example of this. The aluminium chassis and frame are hand-crafted, bonded and riveted, but a great development from the aluminium-skinned wooden bodies built on a steel chassis from the thirties. The cockpit provides a quintessentially British sensation from the traditional real wood and leather trim, but combine that with modern build-quality and know-how and you end up with the fusion that Morgan is known for. Power is delivered by a 4.8-litre BMW V8, with 367hp sprinting from 0-62 in 4.5 seconds.
This Series 5 Aero 8 is finished in the glamourous colour combo of cream interior contrasted with a rich blue exterior. The interior benefits from blue piping on the leather seats, whilst the blue carpets contrast with cream piping. This, as well as a painted blue dashboard and wooden windowsills, creates a luxurious combination of colours for driver and passenger. This model is a convertible with a blue fabric roof, also benefiting from the 6-speed auto box, another juxtaposition of modern technology.
It is an extremely well taken care of example, being stored with us in our dehumidified facility, and has also been treated to a full professional detail by our concours-winning team. It has only covered just 1040 miles in its existence! Morgan provide photographs of the build process of their cars, and this is present alongside the car’s original handbook and documents. Also present is Morgan’s USB stick containing their digital owners’ manual and video, and two keys. Additional features include heated seats, central locking and climate control. This is an absolutely stunning Aero 8, a car that looks like no other on the road and is the perfect combination of classic appearance and modern feel.
