Making its debut in 2001, the Morgan Aero 8 was the first all-new model to come out of the factory since 1964. Revolutionary in its design, the car featured an all-aluminium bonded chassis, a huge step away from the traditional ‘ladder’ style chassis which had been a mainstay through Morgan history. The powerplant was initially a 4.4-litre BMW M62 V8 mated to a 6-speed Getrag gearbox before being superseded by the large 4.8-litre N62 V8 in 2007, offered with both manual and automatic gearboxes.
Morgan hired a budding young designer by the name of Matthew Humphries in the mid-2000s, and it was his ‘Aeromax’ design that became a reality in 2005 when the concept was first shown at the 2005 Geneva Motorshow. Well received, the Coupe was to be limited to 100 production vehicles, and it was at this time that Matthew became Head of Design at the Morgan Motor Company. Following on from the success of the Aeromax, further cars were designed and built, namely, the Aero Coupe and the Targa-roofed Aero SuperSport. Matthew went on to design the new Morgan 3-Wheeler, which became an instant hit.
Offered here is a rare 2012 Morgan Aero SuperSport, supplied new in right-hand drive to its first owner in Cyprus through Mototrend, who also hold the Ferrari, Maserati and Lotus franchises. Sporting an automatic gearbox, it's finished in Luna Grey with a Silver Steel roof, the interior is trimmed in Yarwood Brecon leather with white stitching, black carpets, and a dark grey dashboard with Tawny Ash wood stain. After barely a year in Cyprus, the car was purchased by our vendor through well-known Morgan specialist SGT in Taplow and it was registered with the DVLA to obtain a UK V5c on 14th January ’13.
Since being in the care of our vendor, it has been serviced and maintained by Morgan dealer Krazy Horse, with the most recent full service being carried out in June ’19, for which there is an invoice in the file. Now having covered a mere 5,649 miles, this two-owner car is ready to find a new home.
The vendor is to retain his private registration, and hence the car will return to an appropriate age-related plated. It is MOT tested until 6th June ’20 and is supplied with a Morgan photo album documenting its build, its handbooks and some invoices. The design of the SuperSport was truly ground-breaking at the time, encapsulating modern construction techniques, such as ‘superformed’ aluminium out panels, whilst still maintaining the traditional methods of motor manufacturing. With a 4.8-litre V8 rumbling through its side-exit exhaust pipes, you will certainly turn heads with its striking looks and the accompanying soundtrack. This is the only Targa roof model Morgan has ever produced making it a rather special motor car.
