The GT is the Aero's swan song.
Stepping slightly out of its comfort zone, Morgan Motors has announced plans to introduce an Aero-based model it calls its most extreme car yet. It's also the last Aero variant.
Badged GT, the more hardcore Aero benefits from technology that has seeped down from the company's GT3 racing program. The teaser image reveals little, but we expect to see edition-specific aerodynamic add-ons like louvres on top of the front fenders.
Like the standard Aero, the GT uses a 4.8-liter V8 engine borrowed from the BMW parts bin, according to Motor Authority. It sends 367 horsepower to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual transmission. The GT takes 4.5 seconds to complete the zero-to-60-mph sprint, and it tops out at 170 mph.
The Morgan Aero GT will make its global debut at next year's edition of the Geneva Auto Show. Production is limited to just eight examples. Pricing information hasn't been released yet but it's of little importance to us because the entire production run is already spoken for.
The GT is the Aero's swan song. Production will end once the final GT rolls off the line. Details about its successor are few and far between, but it could incorporate some form of electrification.
