First Morgan Aero GT complete!


Sadly this isn't a news story confirming that additional Morgan Aero GTs will be built. Nor does it reveal that, actually, the BMW V8 can continue seeing service in a British sports car. So, unfortunately, you probably still can't have one.

The news? Morgan has made the first one. Not exactly imperative, granted, but then it does look pretty cool. And there won't be many. So it would be remiss not to share the pics, wouldn't it?
If the colour of this Aero GT looks familiar, that's because it's Miami Blue. Yes, the Porsche colour, and the one we opted for on our Caterham 7 long termer. But then if it's good enough for those two then it's good enough for Morgan. This particular car also has a black interior and black wheels.


Morgan's MD Steve Morris said of the new car: "The first Aero GT off the production line looks superb in every way. It was a pleasure to reveal the car to the world just a few weeks ago, to see the first car leave the factory is an honour and I know the new owner will be delighted when they take delivery." Let's hope the next seven look as good as this one!

    An Aero 8 has always been top of my lottery list but this is stunning.

    Some sort of dark candy red with those wheels would look fantastic.

    Love Morgan
    But that's a shocking colour, wheel combo.
    Well the wheels are quite nice but painting them black....urghhh
    Here's hoping for better for the remaining production run.
    Come on Morgan owners, show us some class... wink

    Still very lacking in aesthetics, IMO.

    In that pic of the front under the lights could no-one be bothered to move the cable on the floor and the hanging coats, let alone shut the boot?

    Or remove the rag from on top of the light, or shut the boot and the door.

    But these are details: that's lovely, although I agree with earlier comments re colour / wheels.
