The Morgan Motor Company has released the brochure for their 2008 limited edition Morgan Aeromax. Comprised of 12 pages (including the front and rear cover), the literature details technical specifications of the coupe, optional extras as well as providing colour swatches of the 11 ‘recommended’ exterior colours, 5 interior leathers and 3 wood trims.
The Morgan Aero 8 is the lightest V8 sports car in the world. 2008 sees the start of production of the new 4.8 litre V8 version. The latest BMW V8 engine takes Morgan performance to the next level.
The new engine adds 13% more power, raising output to 367 bhp, giving a power to weight ratio of over 315 bhp/tonne, enough to propel the car from 0 – 60 mph in just 4.2 seconds and on to a top speed of 170 mph. More >
The name 4/4 denoted the change to 4 wheels back in 1936, and the model has had continuous development ever since, culminating in this, the latest in small, lightweight, safe and fun sportscars using the unique fusion of traditional quality materials with the latest in advanced powertrain technology.
The high efficiency 115Bhp 1.6 litre Ford Sigma engine means that full advantage of the 800 kilogramme all up weight can be made. 143 Bhp/tonne gives lively performance with 0-62 mph in under 8 seconds, and with CO2 emissions well below 140g/km means that the Morgan delivers a thoroughly contemporary package.
