Limited edition car for £72,500

The sports car company Morgan is making 15 limited edition race cars: its most expensive model yet with a price tag of £72,500.
The company has teamed up with Aero Racing, manufacturers of two Morgan Aero 8s currently enjoying success in the British GT Cup Class Championship, to create the replicas.

The Morgan Motor Company, based in Malvern, has a history of producing classic racing cars.

The company said the launch of the limited edition Aero 8 GT Coupé was aimed at “connoisseurs of fine driving”.

The 15 numbered cars will be hand built at Morgan’s Worcestershire factory.

Managing director Charles Morgan said: “We have always tried to bring customers special developments from the race track, and this car is a superb example.”

The Aero 8 GT Coupés will be finished by Aero Racing to a specification which includes a 4.6 litre BMW engine and a carbon fibre hard-top.

The cars will be in the Morgan race team colours of dark blue and silver.

The UK retail price is £72,500 while a soft-top option is available at an additional cost of £2,000.

£72,500 and you didnt even get a roof!

Spend a bit more and you cant get a roof, with a Mini underneath it.

Starting at just £98,000 for a pushrod engine and shiny carbs

Unlike the Morgan you can at least drive it home!

think roof optional extra, Morgan only 10 miles up road from where I work get to see some interesting ones drive past.

though thingk that model now replaced by… The Morgan Plus 8 GTR

And think cost more like £144K now for the GT model. with that GTR speculated at £200K-£250K

They do look decidedly dicey over the Hereford potholes I’d stick with the Mini :slight_smile:

I looked at the pictures of the Plus 8 GTR it looks good, But…

The artist that drew the pictures used a banned word in the annotation… “Stance”
You crossed a line man, you went TOO FAR

“Stance” is this nonsense…


DOWN WITH THIS SORT OF THING!

I am curious who had the unused Chassis units and what were they planning to do with them in the first place, must be a back story there somewhere.

Looks like he left an angle grinder under the car.

Sarge.

or the exhaust whistle fell out …

"Chattanooga Choo Choo"
(originally by Glenn Miller)

Hey there, pal, whatcha say?
Step aside partner, it’s my day

Bend an ear and listen to my version
Of a Lowfield excursion

Pardon me boys, is that the Saratoga Choo-Choo…
Follow the A49
She is running on time
When you hear the whistle blowing eight to the bar
Then you know that Peugeots gone far

Pass me coat, its the one with half a packet of Werthers in the pocket
