I am 6 2 and tried the white demonstrator a few months ago but couldn't get in it to drive. Insufficient head and leg room. I could just about squeeze in as a passenger with my head at an angle. By contrast no issues with my classic 4/4 with roof up.

I can't see you being able to fit. There may be options to slim down the seat a bit but I don't know if this would be enough.

I didn't know the tank had moved so need to try an Aeromax.
I'm 6'3" and have driven the factory demo Aero Coupe on a couple of occasions now. No problems getting in or out and bags of room inside.

Are we talking about the same car?

I can drive a classic morgan no probs, my Ultima without lowered floors, an elise at a bit of a squeeze but no way the latest white Morgan demonstrator. Maybe they have changed the seats.

It reminds me of the Marcos that was launched and died. I couldn't fit in that.

Maybe I have a longer upper body.

You must have a different shaped body! I struggled like mad with an Elise yet can get in and out of the Aero Supersport (identical to the coupe) with ease.

I can't see how you can drive a classic Morgan and not the Aero? Maybe you jut havent worked out how to get in?

It's not getting in that is the problem. It is comfort and saftey when in.

Maybe I need to try again. It is a car I had on my target list but frustrating to take it off just because of size.

I think it may just be the movement of the fuel tank that causes teh problem. If so I need to look for an Aeromax instead.

Yup, the Morgan factory demo Aero Coupe. At the time I drove it it was the only one in the world so more than likely the same car wink
You must be an odd shape tongue out lol
The seats are the same today as the day it was built so again, same seats, same car.

Ok so I am 6ft 5 and my Aero 8 is a squeeze but okay once your in its great and of course with the top down even easier. Aeromax I doubt as I tried one at SGT last year and could not even get through the door !!. Aero SS Should be okay.
At 6ft 3 onwards all sports cars are a challenge ......bit snug great!
