Morgan Aero Super Sports: grey cabriolet
The Morgan Aero 8 sports car was built by Morgan Motor Company at its factory in Malvern Link, England from 2000 until 2018.
The Aero 8 shape evolved in the traditional Morgan way of form following function and the main players were Chris Lawrence, Charles Morgan and other members of the Morgan Engineering Team, and Norman Kent of Survirn Engineering Ltd – especially for the tooling of the Aero wings.
Aero Supersports (2009–2016)
The Morgan Aero SuperSports is a targa-roofed development of the AeroMax platform.
Presented in 2009 at Villa d’Este Elegance Concours to celebrate the 100 years of Morgan, the Supersports shares the same chassis, engine and transmission of the Aero 8 Series 4. The Aero Supersports presented at Villa d’Este was based on AeroMax.
Main differences with the production model are: different position of the fuel tank, the refill fuel cap on the rear wheel arch, smaller boot (targa roof panels could not fit into the boot) and two fancy champagne bottle and glass holders behind the seats. The rear of the car retained the Lancia Thesis rear lights and wing shape but had a boat tail style with a comparatively large practical boot.
