2009 Morgan Aero8 Series IV - Auto

2009 Morgan Aero8 Series IV - Auto

Malvern, Worcestershire, the turn of the century. Expert craftsmen and women are hard at work in a factory who’s doors have been opened and closed by generations of working hands. At the same time, in the far more glitzy and glam Geneva Motor Show, Morgan Motor Company executives prepare to pull the cover back on their latest creation.

The Aero 8, a revelation for Morgan, it’s first all new design since the mid-1960s. The Aero 8 is as impressive now as it was then. For the first time, Morgan had deployed an aluminium chassis and worked with BMW, not only to gain access to their extensive testing facilities, but also to source a V8 heart.

This Aero 8 is a Series IV, supplied new in 2009 it was ordered in an incredibly tasteful specification. Rolls-Royce Velvet Green over a full Biscuit leather interior. But, let's start with the exterior. Despite being an all new model, the Aero 8 didn’t stray too far away from traditional Morgan styling, swooping lines of the 1930s are accented by subtly extended wheel arches, narrowing rear end and at the front, a very traditional Morgan grille sits proudly in front of a traditionally louvred bonnet. This car is a 1909-2009 Centenary Edition that was chosen to be on display at The Hampton Court Concours of Elegance, and was judged by HRH Prince Michael of Kent in 2021.

The paintwork is in excellent condition, and lives up to the high standards of its name. 6-Spoke lightweight alloy wheels finished in a classy silver with a polished lip are wrapped in high-performance Pirelli rubber and tucked behind the combination is a set of AP Racing brakes. Whilst the black fabric roof is also in excellent shape, it was replaced in 2012 at a cost of just under €1,000.

On the inside, you’ll find an interior almost completely trimmed in a luscious biscuit leather. Bucket seats offer the driver enough support, whilst still retaining a decent level of comfort. There is a wide array of machined aluminium components too, the door handles, handbrake lever and surround and of course the turned dashboard. But what Morgan interior would be complete without some wood? None, that’s why this one has a wooden top dash rail, door cappings and door armrests. Morgan really pulled out all the stops, even trimming the plastic steering column cowling in black leather to further cement the quality experience.

Open the bonnet and you’ll find a BMW engine, and it’s a good one. The N62B48 V8, a 4.8-litre lightweight compact V8, producing 362bhp. It’s mated to a 6-speed-manual gearbox. The car also benefits from a quad-exit performance exhaust that cost €1,900. The engine bay is clean, tidy and free from leaks and damage, all of which are indicators of an incredibly well maintained car.

The condition is backed up by a stack of paperwork, it’s in the paperwork that you’ll discover that this Morgan was exported to Germany not long after its delivery in 2009, it was repatriated some ten-years later.
