Well, according to the feature on the Plus 8 in the latest Motor Punk Magazine, a total of just 300 Plus 8s were built between 2012 and 2018.
Given a substantial number were exports how many does that leave in the UK? Possibly 100?
Whatever way one looks at the numbers a Plus 8 on an Aero chassis is rather special.
I'm keeping mine.

In fact Williams claimed there was only one, as I recall......

I was told when going round the factory a few weeks ago the same figures including the last 50 as well , and that makes them like hen's teeth ! Haven't test driven the plus 6 yet as I have been told they need a sports exhaust as well as being 2 cylinders short ! grin2

They are special, made at an average of 42 per year, less than one a week, for 7 years.
Beginning to think I'm a custodian, not an owner.
Tarka was build in 2013, registered in 2014 and had covered 40,560miles as of today.

It has always felt like the Aero was a very very small volume. Even when compared to the number of Trads sold hardly being high volume.

The Coupe is 2013 made, registered in 14 and now has ~33,000 so I am guessing we are using them quite well to ensure people don't forget they exist, its all part of a public service.
Given the way gongs were handed out last night perhaps we should be looking to receive a shiny medal in the post from HM in the near future? (whoops wrong thread)

I believe 92 Aero plus 8’s we’re made in RHD. Not sure if that includes the final 50 or not.
Considering the Aero has taken about 2 million in development over the years it was probably a loss leader (?). I love mine....

If you want to do some digging then the dvla offer statistics https://www.gov.uk/government/statistical-data-sets/all-vehicles-veh01#registered-for-the-first-time as do https://www.howmanyleft.co.uk/vehicle/morgan_aero_8

The DVLA numbers show as being registered in UK and on the road so excludes sorn.

Not sure even DVLA can be relied on for accuracy. Don't forget a lot of certificates of conformity from Morgan are inaccurate! Often seen Aero CoC's showing the car to be a 4/4 etc

My CoC for the 2013 Coupe Auto shows it as an Aero Supersports.
