2010 Morgan Aero SuperSports
You’d be hard-pressed to find a car that is both as startlingly old-fashioned and strikingly modern as the SuperSports. Peel away the shapely aluminum bodywork and you’ll see its wooden supports. But dig further down, below the wooden body framing, and you’ll find a state-of-the-art bonded aluminum chassis. That’s just how Morgan is: living in both the new and the old world simultaneously. However, there’s absolutely nothing old-fashioned about how the SuperSports performs. A 362 horsepower BMW V8 punts the featherweight targa-topped Morgan forward with authority; Morgan says it’ll hit 62 mph in 4.2 seconds, but most testers agree that this is a conservative number. It also sounds fast, with a ferocious bark from the side-exit exhaust under acceleration. Between its Old World hand-crafted luxury with the best 21st Century performance componentry, the SuperSports is truly a no-compromises handbuilt supercar.
