The ‘gloves off’ Aero 8 GT has arrived, with a more aggressive profile and some beautifully tense lines, it is a dramatic piece of automotive design, elegantly expressed.
Described as one of the ‘wildest ideas’ by Head of Design Jon Wells, this limited Aero GT edition marries form and function to create a harmonious beast.
Just eight Aero GTs are to be produced, and each one will, once the order is placed, be carefully tailored under the guidance of Morgan’s Head of Design Jon Wells, by the new owner. We think that the car is special in itself, but the opportunity to work with one of the finest automotive designers in the world will ensure your Aero GT is an important and emotional addition to any car collection.
The design for the Aero GT is an exemplary showcase of design blending the functional with the aesthetic, from its restyled wing impressions to the all-new front and rear suspension. The Aero GT also features a soft-top and a rear redesign, which focused on the overall aerodynamic performance of the car. Additional touches include a dramatic diffuser which reduces air pressure and sculpted body panels which were created using the technologically advanced Superforming process.
The Aero GT will be powered by the 367bhp BMW N62 V8 in match with its predecessor, the Aero 8. The car achieves 0-62mph in just 4.5 seconds with a top speed of 170mph, so is not a car for the faint hearted. The Aero GT will also benefit from Morgan’s latest adjustable suspension and will be built by the Morgan Special Projects department following your consultation with Jon Wells.
