Morgans traditional line of sports cars was enhanced by
the arrival of the Morgan
Aero8 2000, in 2005 the Aeromax concept appeared based
around the Aero8's chassis. The Aeromax was designed by
Coventry Automotive Design School student Matthew Humphries.
The Aeromax concept was based on the requirement for a
comfortable long distance Touring Coupe. Features such
as the gullwing boot openings, hardwood and traditional
pleated leather interior and a large flat load area behind
the seats were particular requirements.
The quarter scale clay model was required to harmonise
with the Morgan Aero8 chassis and incorporated the exterior
elements of the car that were not to be specially tooled.
The Aeromax is an illustration of flexible manufacturing
at the Morgan Motor Company, possible because of its small
size, and it took just 4 months from an initial sketch
to being able to test drive a finished car.
Modern automotive technology is combined with quality
craftsmanship in the Aeromax, Morgans traditional ash
frame is laminated for extra strength giving the car more
potential for energy absorption in the cockpit and also
ensures durability and safety.
The Aeromax is powered by the latest version of BMW's
N62 V8, couple this with the lightweight construction
methods and materials and the Aeromax Coupe is one of
the fastest accelerating sports cars in Europe.
