The new 2012 Morgan Aero Coupe is an advanced supercar, which has been especially designed for long distance driving. The inspiration for this strong and rigid vehicle came from the Morgan GT3 Aero which has already won number of racings. The cockpit of the new Coupe delivers high levels of comfort with a large and secure boot in the rear for luggage. The body of the vehicle has been constructed entirely from aluminium which makes it really light weight. Hence the new Morgan Aero Coupe is constructed with environmental responsibility and a high level of safety. The roof is fixed and combined with the enclosed cabin, gives greater sense of security and silence. A stiff aluminium chassis cradles the 4.8 litre BMW V8 engine and the 6 speed manual or automatic transmission. The individual alloy parts are formed from tooling and hand assembled by skilled craftsmen at the foot of the Malvern hills.

The Morgan Aero Coupe is undoubtedly a car that is designed to bring everlasting class and style. It has proven chemical coating and treatments of the rigid bonded chassis and body. In addition the design of this platform has been consistently enhanced and re-engineered. Therefore, all this lead to the present moment, where the Morgan Motor Company is a class leader in this chassis and car body technology.

The cockpit of the model is inspiring and comforting. The sensation of speed is emphasized by the enticing view down the elegant bonnet. The view to the rear makes the car easy to maneuver and to park. A lot of attention has been put on the details too. For instance, the ash hardwood, which surrounds the cockpit and doors, can be hand polished in a color of customers' choice. Furthermore, the controls are luxurious to touch and the leather work is stitched with twin needles and combined with suede effect panels for contrast and a dynamic sporty feel. Pressure point reclining seats support the passengers. Reliability is ensured with the BMW V8 and the mounted to it six speed automatic transmission. To go into details, it can be operated in two modes: "Sport" and "Auto". In the first mode the engine holds its gear to

6500rpm and "blips" the throttle before making a down shift. The power to weight ratio is around 320bhp (235 kW) per tonne and a 0-62mph (0-100 km/h) of 4.5 seconds combined with a top speed of 170mph is effortlessly achievable. At last the new 2012 Morgan Aero Coupe comes with a full specification as standard. Nevertheless, the vehicle can also be further customized to the customers' individual taste.
