Morgan is the world’s 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 170mph (270km/h) and able to accelerate from 0-60mph (96km/h) in less than 5.0 seconds! Under that sleek body was a hi-tech aluminium intensive chassis and a powerful BMW V8 engine.
Morgan Aero 8: A Brave and Exciting New Worldis a 300-page book that 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.
There will be three limited edition versions all of which will be numbered and signed by the author and Charles Morgan. The first will be leather (100 copies); the second will be packaged in an Ash box (also 100 copies); and the third will have a brushed aluminium cover with the Morgan wings etched into its surface (also 100 copies).
Charles Morgan has written the Foreword.
