few weeks ago Morgan warned us that would be present at the Geneva Motor Show with a major innovation. Obviously you can not expect the same deployment when it comes to a craft manufacturer, but we always have in mind as there are few manufacturers offering what it. The fifth generation or updating the Morgan Aero 8 is here and it does with the sky as a roof because it is a convertible.
Although the press release the craft manufacturer tells of a new aluminum body sculpted by hand , the fact is that the Morgan Aero 8 still has the same aesthetic retro usual, with changes so subtle that we could play the game of the seven differences. Leaving changes aside, the fact is that this British sports falls due to the fit of their lines and now we can enjoy the wind.
Around the convertible canvas was created thanks to the same chassis that has already killed more than 1250 models of the firm since the first generation hurl back in 2000. Obviously features modifications affecting the structural rigidity , and a new limited suspension and source slip differential BMW . It also features new stabilizing.
Driving the rear wheels through a manual gearbox or 6-speed automatic with paddles behind the wheel, we have a source block 4.8-liter BMW V8 and 370 hp . The benefits are very good, with a zero to sixty in four seconds and a top speed of 270 km / h. Meanwhile, the average consumption is 12.1 liters per 100 km, a figure that will stop you care when you enjoy the glorious sound of the block (video).
