Morgan today unveils the latest model in its Aero line-up, a new 170mph roadster called the Aero SuperSports.
Sharing its chassis and 367bhp BMW 4.8-litre V8 engine with the AeroMax and Aero 8, the new Aero SuperSports will cost a cool £127,000 when production starts next year. Production is expected to be limited, this time to just 200 cars.
The new model will be offered with both six-speed auto' and manual gearboxes, and performance should be electrifying. Like the AeroMax before it, the Aero SuperSports is fully up-to-date technically using Canbus software to control engine functions, lighting, wipers and instrumentation, says the company. The Aero SuperSports also provides a modern safety package including Electronic Brake Distribution, tyre pressure monitoring, ABS and Siemens electronic airbags.
'The Morgan Aero SuperSports is a luxurious flamboyant sports car which also remains true to Morgan's philosophy of lightweight minimalist simplicity,' says Charles Morgan, grandson of the illustrious firm's founder. 'It is a celebration of our love of cars and the romance of travel and is a fitting model to announce during Morgan's Centenary year.'
The new model is revealed today in concept form at the Villa d'Este concours event in Italy.
