The Aero 8 is powered by a specially-developed 4.4-litre BMW V8 engine with VANOS variable inlet valve timing, which generates 286bhp and delivers acceleration from 0-100km/h in under 5 seconds. An innovative Morgan-designed suspension system coupled with a low centre of gravity, a race-bred braking system, and a highly developed aerodynamic shape ensure unsurpassed road holding, stability and handling. And with a gross weight of around 1000kgs, the Aero 8 has one of the best power-to-weight ratios of any production sports car.

Morgan Motor Company has recently secured European Whole Vehicle Type Approval for the two-seater, after it was subjected to 47 rigorous tests covering key areas including active and passive safety features, environmental issues, and driveability. The approval means that Morgan customers can now legally register new Aero 8s anywhere in the EU.

The Aero 8 will be available in over 30,000 body colours and the Connolly leather trim comes in a choice of over 40 colours.

600 orders have already been placed for the hand-built supercar, which is currently entering full production at the company's Malvern factory. A brand new manufacturing facility dedicated to the new car is nearing completion, and the company will build about 150 Aero 8s by the end of 2001. The target for a full year's production is 300 units, and the waiting list currently stands at two years. Production of other models in the Morgan range, including 4/4 and Plus 8, continues unaffected.
