Morgan's New Aero Supersports Selling
Morgan Aero Supersports
1st July, 2009
The new Morgan Aero SuperSports, revealed at the Villa
d’Este Concours in Italy in April has made a flying start in Australia, with two orders already
received for delivery in 2010.
The base price of the car in standard trim can now be confirmed at $375,000*, making it the most
expensive Morgan model ever offered to discerning Australian car enthusiasts.
Meanwhile, production slots for the current “Series 4” Morgan Aero 8 are now in short supply, with
only 15 production slots remaining, before production ceases in December 2009, to free capacity for
the new Aero SuperSports.
Priced from $255,000*, the Morgan Aero 8 offers rather good value in its final iteration.
The new Morgan Aero SuperSports is also achieving success in International FIA GT3 racing in Europe,
having won both races in the first round of the series held at Silverstone.
It is comforting to know that in its Centenary Year, the Morgan Motor Company is running at full
capacity, whereas ironically some of the biggest automotive companies have gone bankrupt.
HFS Morgan, founder of the Morgan Motor Company in 1909, was wise to implement his philosophy of not
building a car without an order from the very start. This philosophy has stood the Company in good
stead ever since!
Who would have guessed then, or even 50-years ago, that Morgan would now be the oldest and largest
British owned car company! Long may it continue.
With grandson Charles Morgan now at the helm and with more new products emerging at a quicker pace
than ever before, the dedicated small workforce at the Malvern Kink factory in rural Worcestershire
have a lot of which to be proud.
The Morgan Centenary festivities reach their peak at a major event to be held at Cheltenham in
Gloucestershire on the weekend of the 1st and 2nd of August 2009.
Thousands of 'Morganeers' from all over the world are making the 'pilgrimage' to England, many
taking their cars to be part of this very special event. Even cars especially shipped from Australia
will be in attendance.
