2013 Morgan Aero Coupe Revealed [Photo Gallery]
The body is based on the GT3 Aero race car, but also borrows from the last Morgan coupe, the 2006 AeroMax of which only 100 were built.
Power for the Aero Coupe comes from a 4.8-liter V8, that was found in the old BMW 650i. It’s now been tuned to produce 390 horsepower and 361lb-ft of torque, which is enough to push the aluminum car to 62 mph in just 4.5 seconds in the case of the automatic or 4.2 seconds in the case of the manual.
The Aero Coupe will officially bow at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, together with a couple of other fresh models from the British company.
