Looking at the images again I think that the rear window looks larger than normal and flat - possibly glass? There is also something over-exaggerated in the offset of the side screens. Perhaps there is a tin top lurking beneath a doubly disguised roof profile?

Just seen some higher resolution photos of the covert Mog and I can reveal the lettering on the car is:

CX-GEN
PT-19

Not that I think it means much
I think it’s all part of the rouse

Just time to burn a little more petrol before dinner.

Agree on both points:

the screen shows no signs of flexing and has more rounded corners than usual, through the shape could be down to the dazzle wrap.
It almost looks as if the doors have been made to slope outwards and so the side screen inwards, giving more arm room.

Compare a current Trad with the roof up and notice the centre panel of the roof. On current cars it's quite a drastic drop yet with this it's almost horizontal. The area aft of the side screen looks a tad longer/roomier as well.

There are quite a few subtle signs that this is clearly something new. It's interesting when you compare what you can see in regards to the suspension that is visible to images on the web of current aero chassis in build. I'll leave it at that . wink

On the first or second picture in the article the steering is turned in. The wheel is slightly inclined. This looks like "modern" Ackermann steering. With the old Trad the wheel would stand straight on the vertical axis.

I'd expect it has front suspension evolved from the Aero S5, so upper and lower wishbones, coil over springs/shocks and an ARB.
The back is probably the same, or it could be as in the original Aero. Morgan has a patent on that.

In that photo the difference in front/rear tyre width seems big: the S4 Aero has 245 rear, 225 front. The fronts look narrower than 225...I'm assuming 18"wheels.

My guess the cabin will be wider and a bit longer, more like the Aero +8.
Essentially a refined and improved Aero chassis with a new Turbocharged 6 cylinder motor delivering between 300 and 350 bhp, fed through an 8 speed auto box with paddle shift, though there could be a 6 speed manual option, to a LSD.

I expect the driving experience will be like a refined and updated Aero +8. In my vew it could be a superb car.

I wonder if there will now be more or less road spray covering the cab?
