2013 Morgan Aero Coupe to Debut at Geneva

Morgan will unveil their advanced supercar at Geneva and then put into regular production.

Only one hundred copies of the gorgeous AeroMax Coupe were ever built following its unveiling at the 2006 Geneva Motor Show. This time round things are going to be different as according to Autoblog.nl, the Morgan Aero Coupe will return for 2013 and enter regular production. Based on the Morgan's GT3 Aero race car but with similar lines to the AeroMax, the Coupe will be fundamental to Morgan's model line-up.

The Aero Coupe will be powered by a BMW 4.8-liter V8, good for 390hp and 361lb-ft of torque, and weigh in at less than 2,600 pounds thanks to a hand-assembled aluminum body and chassis. Morgan claim manual transmission variants will shoot from 0-62mph in 4.5 seconds with their automatic-equipped counterparts taking just 4.2 seconds. Top speed will be nearly 170mph. Inside the Aero Coupe, ash hardwood surrounds the cockpit and doors, hand polished in a choice of colors. Occupants will be kept snug in pressure point reclining seats while a customized sound system is also included.

Britain's traditional sports car builder will also be unveiling a revised Morgan Roadster and an all-new Morgan Plus 8 at the Geneva Motor Show.
