Morgan Aero 8 #2# A Brave and Exciting New World

by Gavin Farmer

Morgan is the worlds only family-owned automobile manufacturer, one that has recently celebrated its Centenary. Quite amazing.

With the arrival of the Aero 8 the company stepped boldly into the new Millennium with a genuine high performance supercar capable of a top speed of around 170 mph (270 km/h) and able to accelerate from 0-60 mph (96 km/h) in less than 5.0 seconds! Under that sleek body was a hi-tech aluminium intensive chassis and a powerful BMW V8 engine.

This book explores in quite some detail the design and development of the Aero 8 and its several derivatives. It is printed on glossy art paper with hard binding and a colour dust jacket. Included are hundreds of photographs, many of which have never been previously published.
