I can't explain it other than the understanding at launch time that only 100 would ever be produced but this has been called into question on here at times by current owners so quite where the truth lies I don't know. My understanding was that the Swiss banker that backed the project bought 2 of them and dictated the numbers to protect his interest but that is not hard fact just the rumour at the time.

Also I don't know how many of the other models you mention have been produced which has to be relevant to current values as there seems to be great disparities among this bunch.

Perhaps an Aeromax expert will step up and put us in the know..

As MMC couldn't even shift 100 Centenary Roadsters, I very much doubt 100 ' Max's were genuinely made, perhaps all the better as they remain super rare and a beautiful beast love

The Max was the right car at the right time for MMC. Stunning overall design.

It has a look which no other Aero can match, and the only downside is that it's a coupe. But with the space and money I would take a Max over any other Aero.

The Aeromax is a beautiful car without a doubt, but my heart belongs to the Aero Supersport. Utterly sublime. The only downside (apart from not having a hope in hell of ever being able to afford to buy one) is that I seriously doubt I'd get it up our driveway.

Not sure if you've seen this in the flesh Richard? It was at the Edenbridge Motor Show last summer which I attended and where the local Morgan group (HopMog) won the best car display trophy and this car was the definite stand-out!


Cheers, Paul

No I haven't Paul but I remember it last time it was advertised, I think it was a newish dealer up north (Oakmere maybe) with very good photographs and was totally smitten by it.

This picture of the delivery to the lucky new owner was posted on FB by them at handover.

Agree with most people sentiments on here

The Max was and still is a very special car inside and out. No other Aero has come close in my view

I thought the story of the Max's creation was the request for a one off hard top from the Swiss gent with good taste. The reaction was so good they gained agreement for 100 to align with the 100 year centennial for the company. There were a few that did come later due to accident damage etc.

The Supersport was about £20k more at retail following the Max. I was told around 20-30 Coupes were made in a mix of LHD and RHD so ironically it ended up being the rare one not the limited edition Max!

As a Coupe owner I still think the Max was the best shape and balance.


Just time to rent a thimble more petrol before dinner.
