I forgot to ask. There are many very good youtoob videos around the Aero range and I wondered if you wanted to place links to them throughout to allow them to provide confirmation and value?


Just time to burn a little more petrol before dinner.

I have no clue. In reality I never update a wiki page myself. If somebody else is more experienced, welcome to let him/her to take it over.

Great idea, the book Morgan Aero 8 - A Brave New World is likely to be a great source of information, it had some fantastic background information around the development of the S1 with BMW which was fascinating, and a long cry from what most people think Morgan do!

One quick note, I thought the top speed of the S1 was quoted as 160mph?

I found the comment that the GT was substantially more expensive than the S5 at £145k strange. I saw quite a few S5 specs that were in the £120-130k bracket. Doesn't seem that much more.

That was me, I had not seen the S5 go that high so my mistake. When they first came out I saw them being advertised around £100-110k and had that in my mind. Always happy to be corrected.

Morgan did well though with the GT, a body kit (revised wings), slightly different look to the hard top option and adjustable suspension compared to the standard car

Next WE, if I find some time (and if I succeed from a technical perspective since I never did it), I will try to update the wiki page with the word info.

I updated the Wiki page.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morgan_Aero_8

Now in my opinion what would be nice (except for the additional updates that everybody can do) would be to have similar pics (angles and so on) of the different Aero models and a significant text update should be done on the Wiki section, in the aero page of "SPECIFICATIONS"
If you want to add pics (including the serie, with angles similar to the ones that are already on the page since I think wiki has some standards) and update the section "specifications" you can add them in the usual google doc document, link is here:
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1T0EuciMOedQknT5CgXK8UvLXXs_GwuTxR7Ku50IWV_c/edit?usp=sharing

Thanks again to all!
