Morgan made another step into the new technological era and introduced a facelifted version for the Aero 8 in 2004.

In 2004, the British manufacturer decided to set foot in the U.S. market. It introduced the Aero 8 facelift at the Los Angeles Auto Show and promised to deliver 50 cars per year. It was a unique vehicle for a market where the retro-design theme started to catch-up and made more customers happy.

Despite its cross-eye look, the Aero 8 featured a unique design on the market. Its recessed grille, behind the front fenders, was unusual for any car. But the carmaker didn't take its inspiration from the world outside its factory but from the past British roadsters. The car was available as a coupe and an open-top roadster.

Inside, the manufacturer took its inspiration from the past. It installed the instrument cluster in front of the driver, not in the middle of the dash panel. The carmaker didn't want to use plastic to mimic wood and installed a solid wood trim at the upright windshield base. Some naturalists would scream against the use of genuine leather. The designers sacrificed some cows for the sake of the luxurious, yet sporty, bucket seats. Morgan Aero 8 was not only a luxury car; it was a fast one.

Under the hood, Morgan installed a 4.4-liter BMW V8 engine used on vehicles such as the BMW X5 SUV. Since the car was very light, it could smoke many high-performance cars such as a Porsche 911 or a Mercedes-Benz SL500.
