|The Aero 8 has landed in Australia
The five models of the Aero 8 models that were allocated to Australian buyers by the Morgan factory in the UK have arrived in Australia and are now on the road. Production of the Aero 8 is totally allocated with only 160 of these models scheduled to be produced by the Morgan factory.
The new Aero 8 is the final model in the series of Aero models built by the Morgan Motor Company with various BMW V8 engines.
The revolutionary Aero 8 model was first introduced in mid-2000. Over the following 9 years the model underwent a number of minor changes with a total of 660 sold worldwide.
The original Aero 8 was followed by the AeroMax – with 100 sold for road use and a further 13 for ‘display only’ in the USA.
In 2010 the first Aero SuperSports models made their appearance, followed shortly after by the Aero Coupe. There were 129 SuperSports and 38 Coupe delivered worldwide.
Over the past 17 years there were 1100 various Aero models produced. In Australia, there are only 10 Aero models currently on the road. The latest arrival of the new Aero 8 will bring the total Aero count for Australia to 15 units.
