Classic cars with modern performance technology never get old in our book, especially when the brand in question is Morgan. As one of only a few brands in this world that continues to bridge old school looks with new school technology, Morgan is in a unique place in the industry, one that very few of its contemporaries can even step into.
Morgan’s Aero line-up is the unquestioned money maker of the company. And now, it’s fixing to get a new family member in the Morgan Aero Coupe.
Design details surrounding the Aero Coupe have been pretty vague at this point, but Morgan has said that the car will be slotted between the GT3 Aero8 and the Aeromax Supersports.
But where its design dynamics have yet to be fully revealed, Morgan has made it clear that the Aero Coupe will be sporting the same BMW-sourced 4.8-liter V8 engine as that of the Aero and the Plus8, which means that it’s going to carry an output of 367 horsepower and 361 lb/ft of torque. It will also be mated to a either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. As an added treat, Morgan will be offering a custom sports exhaust system that will boost the output of the Aero Coupe to 390 horsepower.
Taking all that into account, the Aero Coupe will carry a 0-62 mph time of 4.5 seconds with a top speed of 155 mph.
