Good evening,

Could someone please tell me the name/paint code of the orange on the Aero 8 GT featured in the video below? It would be helpful and much appreciated.

Thanks very much in advance.

Never asked what the colour was, just enjoyed listening to the sound whenever it appeared around the factory smile

& iirc, it's not one of the 8 GTs, but a converted Aero

It wasn't a converted Aero but the prototype for the final run of 8

:-) I think we're saying the same thing!

The text we settled on for Wikipedia is "Morgan MD Steve Morris was regularly seen in a metallic orange GT, which was a rebodied Series 5."

I guess the underlying thought is that while there are 8 Aero GTs, this is a 9th one...

It was always the plan to offer the package to existing S5 owners

I never heard a thing about that... as an S5 owner you'd have thought I might have!

Absolutely.

Don’t forget the factory will build you anything you want too.
