    they aren't good performers, they aren't comfortable gt either, and they aren't even known by Guido (or Tizio, as I mentioned before ), but they are so special, detailed, classy.
    to be brutally honest, I would buy right now the D12 if I had the money, no matter if it is a pseudo SUV or what else, it's gorgeous, those ribs starting after the wheel arches are magnificent, and the internal aluminum pillars are even better.
    Ok so it's like a Pagani, only cheaper and without the performance.

    I reckon I'm not much bothered wheter they drive well or not, the attention to detail is astonishing. I'd have a base C8 Laviolette if I could.

    The old units were Mini lamps IIRC they've just used the facelifted ones and adjusted the angle on this new version.

    Surely though this is old news, the car is sporting last years reg. number. Either that or Morgan can't afford to get a 58 plate registered chassis.

    I drove a C8 Spyder. It was glorious! It was sort of like a big Lotus Elise, and SO gorgeous both inside and out. The only thing I didn't like was the way the top stowed when it was down; however it's still better than the way the top is stowed on this Morgan, hence my love of the Aeromax.

    the problem with aeromax though is it's terrible built quality. that's at least what i felt stepping inside one at IAA 2007.

    does this roof stand out like this all the time like at the second picture from the first post?

    Too bad about the Aeromax.

    That top bothers me too.

    That's rather excellent then.

    Not only the Spyker has fantastic attention detail but it drives well too.

    As for the Morgan this is nice, but the proper Roadster is better.

    Must agree mostly. The first Aeros might have been cross-eyed but those after changed the rear end to match the looks of a full diaper.

    The scary build quality and front end handling is enough to revive donkey travel.
    The Aeromax is handsomer but with build quality and steering unimproved.

    The classic models are a safer bet.

    Since it's been built in just 100 units I thought the build quality was going to be actually good (craftsmanship attention to details, precision, or something similar)
