|The Quest of Individuality|
Morgan Motor Company is know for their radical designs and how often they change them. Just a few days after the introduction of the LIFEcar at the Geneva Motor Show, Morgan announced that the AeroMax would enter into production.
The AeroMax was originally a one-of-a-kind build commissioned for Prince Eric I. Sturdza, President of Banque Baring Brothers Sturdza. So much interest came about after its debut at the 2006 Geneva Motor Show that Morgan began plans to enter a short series production. With permission from the original owner of course.
The frame is constructed from Ash wood and the body is made of aluminium panels. Using a new process, the panels can be pounded into complex shapes and then fitted over the frame. Using as many lightweight materials as possible reduced the carbon emissions and increases fuel mileage. It will also increase performance and handling.
The limited production 4.8 V8 Morgan Aeromax sports reviewed in May 2008. The production run of this car was sold out before the vehicle went into production and there was a waiting list for prospective owners hoping that one of the 100 owners on the list would drop out.
Thanks to the all aluminium chassis and Superform body panels the Aeromax weighs only 1150kg, giving a top speed of over 170mph and a 0-62mph time of 4.1 seconds.
Under the hood Morgan decided to use a 370hp 4.8L BMW V8 engine. From there power goes through an automatic transmission, a first for Morgan, straight to the rear wheels. Everything is connected to a lightweight Aero-8 chassis.
This exemplar N°69 is in excellent condition and ready to smoke the roads. Only one owner from new.
