The British automaker Morgan will be bringing their Morgan Aero Coupe to this year’s edition of the Geneva Motor Show, which opens its doors in March. The Aero Coupe is an advanced supercar designed for practical long distance touring. The strong and rigid vehicle is inspired by the GT3 Aero.
The Morgan Aero Coupe is constructed entirely from aluminium. The individual alloy parts are formed from tooling and hand assembled by skilled craftsmen. The stiff aluminium chassis cradles the 4.8 liter BMW V8 engine linked to a six-speed manual or an automatic transmission. The gearbox can be operated in two modes, ‘Sport’ and ‘Auto’.
In ‘Sport’ mode the engine holds its gear to 6,500rpm and blips the throttle before making a down shift. The maximum power is 367bhp or 390bhp with sports exhaust. The maximum torque is 490Nm. The power to weight ratio is around 320bhp per tonne and a 0-100km/h of 4.5 seconds combined with a top speed of 273km/h.
The cockpit of the Aero Coupe features ash hardwood, which surroundes the cockpit and doors. It can be hand polished in a colour of your choosing. The leather work is stitched with twin needles and combined with suede effect panels. Pressure point reclining seats support the occupants strongly.
The Aero Coupe comes with a full specification as standard. A powerful standard sound system creates audio definition as crisp as the lines of the exterior, according to Morgan. It can also be customized to a person’s individual taste and choice.
