The main novelty of Morgan Motor Company at the Geneva Motor Show has been the new Aero 8 . But Sergio, you’ve confused and you put photos of the current model. No, because although the front and side fenders (wings would be a better term) has not changed, is a completely new car from B pillar back. In addition, the mechanics has been retouched and enhanced. From what I have no doubt that technology is temporary, connected and electrified the modern automobile, Morgan is an island of tranquility. Tranquility analog and mechanical tranquility of this that we hardly left in this crazy world. Call me nostalgic .
mechanical and quality improvement an immovable concept car
Morgan is an analog stronghold in the digital storm to hit an automobile industry increasingly similar to technology.
Although Aero SuperSports and Aero Coupe will stop producing to release capacity for Aero 8, Morgan will continue this vehicle Handcrafted, of which only 300 units will be built. At a leisurely pace, without strict deadlines and with the same quality that has always characterized the Morgan Motor Company. Since the beginning of the creation of the Morgan Aero has sold 1,250 units, and the new Aero 8 returns to the original experience: enjoy the open with soft top. The elegant and disntiguido, with a design that has nothing to envy big as Jaguar, and with classicism completely forgotten.
quintessential British roadster
Under the hood still enjoying a 4.8 V8 of origin BMW , whose power remains unchanged at 367 hp . A little tight, reliable and good push propeller, tested for over ten years in various Bavarian vehicles and Aero own saga. It is associated with a manual gearbox six relations. Although a purist will always choose the path of the three pedals, one option exists automatic gearbox six relations with the possibility of installing paddles behind the steering wheel. Also of origin BMW like the mechanical limited slip that is installed on the Aero 8. range Interesting and without unnecessary complications .
Under the rear overhang has been installed new, more conventional and comfortable than before existing system type independent suspension system McPherson . The aluminum body and chassis have been redesigned slightly, with a final weight of around a ton. The rear has received subtle changes, with elongated optical whose appearance is extremely elegant. Equally stylish is the cover under the hood is hidden retractable canvas, giving a sleek roadster look. In option is available a removable hardtop sport very similar to the 40s and 50s, however, is the winner canvas materials in my opinion.
If we like the exterior, we lose in his delightful interior with so much wood and leather seems Lord Chamberlain’s office. Classic, comfortable and with an impressive craftsmanship. Here hardly any screens TFT or digital instrumentation, only noble materials a quality pushbuttons enclastrada in aluminum panels and flavorful. Had he mentioned that no electronic beyond ABS and electronic braking control? Pasadme a cigar and a glass of brandy, and I found resting place.
