This is a beauty I wonder if this was Shooter of this parishes car .. if so it is as new.. Just checked his previous add on here and it is his car.

It gets you a big slice of history for Plus Six prices and the V8 roar for good measure thumbs

Yes with the care he has lavished on it -I cant see there being a better GTN. A real piece of history and agree with Rich above.

Looks like good value compared to some of the other aero sale prices being asked.

That was my thinking Martin, these are exclusive cars at the end of the day and not just in the Morgan world.

I hope it doesn't end up across the pond like many others.

The GTN was very special for that time.

The Alpina engine, side pipes and suspension changes plus the hard top on the flat boot design makes it quite special.

It is almost "affordable" and a lot more desirable than a Plus Six, in my possibly warped opinion.

I understood the S1 was used as the base for the GTN and the suspension had adjusted settings ? Always happy to be corrected by the chief spanner.

Who you calling a spanner….? cheers

They didn’t have modified suspension or bigger brakes despite the marketing…: x

One of my absolute favourite cars, they do seem odd in the for sale world though - I guess as Morgan is such a niche mark, and this is a niche of a niche!

11/11 was up for sale a few years ago, sat around for over 12 months with very little interest and in the end didn't sell. When I showed some interest it wasn't met with much enthusiasm by the dealer either. I hope this one sells more easily. cheers

It did sell, I almost had it to have one to keep and one to drive! It lives in Malvern now and sometimes comes over to mine so the two can go out for a drive :-)

I don't mind if mine doesn't sell, I have another car I want to buy so need to free up some space. The Flaminia is for sale as well and whichever goes first will make way for the new one.

I have had an enquiry from a collector in the US but until it is 25 years old it is almost impossible to get federal permission to permanently import into the US . Even at 25 years old it might be difficult. So staying in Europe, Asia or Australasia :-)

Good to hear it did find a new home, I hope the Flaminia sells first!

Might get to see a picture of the two GTN's then.. wink

Yes that is kind of special.

Two unicorns in one photo. Double top by a blind person.

I bet the noise on the way there and back was visceral.

You are a bit of a legend shooter. The matt and yellow S4 as well. I remember seeing it at RTCC one day and going, "nutter!"

Whilst the Clarence look of the early Aeros is an acquired taste I still think that the GTN was a complete party piece.

When the recent end-of-line Aero models were released I sadly thought they were a bit chintz and baubles I was reminded of how cool/focused/wild the S1+ GTN was.

If you are going to take a car from £90k to £250k and call it handmade, low volume and special then drop in an Alpina lump, sort the steering and suspension using stuff that has already been done on the aftermarket and leave the body standard so it is a real monster. Whilst I am not a great lover of the hamster his original TopGear video of the GTN shows real respect for what was done. Probably by a couple of blokes and a mallet in great Morgan manner. That is not meant as disrespect of the work the factory has done on recent models but more to appeal to a slightly different "singer" audience. The looks are already SO different that guilding the lilly with a carbon fibre gurney flap seems like the wrong "unique" aspect. Make something that already looks a bit different to a Kia sound and go like a stabbed rat. The CX platform and N58 engine offer a platform to do it in spades.

Is there any chance of a two-for offer?
