The Aero 8 is a classically styled roadster produced in Britain by the Morgan Motor Company.

The characterful little sports car is powered by a BMW sourced V8 engine and it performance is on a par with some pretty serious machinery.

When the car was introduced in 2000, it was the first all-new car from the company since 1948! However in recent years Morgan have developed a series of new models, including the Aero Supersports and EvaGT.

The first generation of the Aero 8 was powered by a 4.4 litre V8 mated to a 6 speed manual gearbox. In 2008 the engine was upgraded to a 4.8 litre unit and an automatic transmission option was added.

In the looks department the Aero 8 is pretty distinctive to say the least. The headlights are about the only are which have come in for criticism from some people - due to their cross-eyed appearance. However in 2007 Morgan's designers made some changes and repositioned the headlights.

Unlike the ash wood chassis of the Morgan Roadster, the Aero 8 has an ultra stiff CAD designed aluminum alloy chassis specially treated, bonded and riveted together.
