Lightweight, powerful and effortlessly stylish, the new Aero 8 is a true British sports car. This, the most refined Aero product to date, is a fitting evolution of Morgan’s most technologically advanced range of vehicles.
The return to open top motoring is one that brings with it new opportunity; a chance to become part of your surroundings rather than an observer. Driving with the hood down amplifies the addictive V8 soundtrack. A dramatic rear opening clam shell boot is used to both tension and hide the mohair hood, whilst the lightweight hard top transforms the car into a coupé. A stiffer all-aluminium chassis and improved suspension are complimented by the improved aerodynamic performance of the hand sculpted body.
Passenger experience has been at the forefront of our design process. New dashboard arrangements, real wood surrounds, textured box-woven carpets and fine leather trim enhance the new interior. Optional touch screen media systems, low slung carbon seats and bespoke detailing packs add to Morgan’s already extensive options list. Wherever this effortless sports tourer takes you, exclusivity is guaranteed.
Each Morgan Aero 8 is hand crafted to order at the factory in Malvern, UK. Each car comes with an extensive options list and is Euro 6 compliant. Please contact your local dealer to register your interest.

An all new mohair soft-top with rear opening clam-shell boot design enables the hood to be stowed away neatly. Occupants are seated low in the vehicle, which in turn enables a sleek roof line and balanced vehicle proportions.

An entirely hand trimmed, customisable interior: textured box woven carpet accentuates the fine natural leather found at each point of contact. Finished with real wood accents, detailed stitch work and classically styled components.
Styling of the new Aero 8 was influenced by classic prototype cars from the 1960s, reflecting a trend of long, fast and low shoulder lines. From above, the view echoes that of a boat deck, enhancing the sense of adventure and escapism.
The aluminium chassis benefits from improved torsional stiffness, a revised front end, all new suspension, anti-roll bars and a limited slip differential. The driver benefits from a more responsive and better handling sports car.
