Morgan AeroMax sold out at Geneva Motor Show

 

 

22nd March, 2007

Morgan AeroMax

As the Geneva Motor Show closed its doors, so the Morgan Motor Company closed the order books for the amazing Morgan AeroMax coupe.

Only 100 of these remarkable cars will be built in 2008 and 2009.

A month prior to the Geneva Motor Show, there were still 40 production slots left, all for build in 2009, but by mid-way through theshow, only 12 slots remained. By the end of the show, all were taken, sadly none for Australia.

Those that missed out can console themselves by the fact that the Morgan Aero 8 roadster, on which the AeroMax is based, remains in production and after a 3-year hiatus from the Australian market due to ADR requirements, the Aero 8 is now once more available.

Now in its third model, the Aero 8 sports a differentengine and transmission from the original car, plus a host of styling and specification enhancements, not the least of which is a widening of the cockpit by 100 mm. The high level of standard comfort and safety specification features expected from discerning buyers in the over $200,000 market are included in the standard specification of the Aero 8.

What makes the individualistic Aero 8 so different from its competitors is the highly advanced aluminium chassis and patented independent double wishbone rear suspension, the latter providing a surprisingly high level of ride comfort, not usually expected from a high performance sports car. At only 1,145 kg in total weight, the Morgan Aero 8 is the lightest production V8 powered car in the world. This results in effortless performance from the sophisticated 4.4 litre BMW engine and a zero to 100 km/h acceleration time of only 4.5 seconds.

In comparison to the $379,000 AeroMax, the open top Morgan Aero 8 looks like rather good value at a recommended retail price of $234,000.
