This car was out on a track day at my local race track. Does anyone know what make it is. I must admit i have never seen one before but it really shifted. Would look nice in my driveway thats for sure :)

Cheers

I love British cars. I doubt I'll ever see one of those Morgans here in the U.S., although I was surprised to see the Mini being sold over here. I was really upset when they discontinued the Lotus Esprit in favor of the new Elise, too. The Esprit was/is one of my all time favorites.

Neil,

I thought maybe the new Avatar was just to represent the newer, more tranquil you. A good contrast from what I assume were motorcycle leathers in the previous avatar that accompanied last weeks fireworks. :D :D

Welcome back.

Yup Morgan Aero 8.

Morgan's first "new" design for centuries. Showing great business sense they then proceeded to name it after a chocolate bar and make it crosseyed. They also fitted it with the nastiest sounding V8 it's been my misfortune to hear.

It even managed to get a "two paper bag" rating on Ugly Carsexternal link :lol:

Two paper bags puts it right up there with the Morris Marina, the Vauxhall Tigra and the Daihatsu Copen. A veritable triumph!

I live about 2 miles from the Morgan factory. Quite often hear and sometimes see the Aero 8 out on test "rides". I know they are currently trying to get into the American market and they have redesigned it to meet the USA emissions and crash safety regs.

Actually fitted with a BMW engine. Don't care what Cadwell says, it sounds wonderful on full chat ;)

Still a butt ugly car though. :D

Cheers

Ian

The headlamps are actually from the VW New Beetle ... but mounted right to left.

Best regards,

I'm sorry gang, but that is intolerably ugly.

If they ship them all to the US, I'm moving to England. Anyone have a room I can rent?


I'm not short. I'm concentrated awesome!
