If you listen to the accountants of the world, the Morgan Aero Coupe simply shouldn't exist. With a production run of around 100 units, this car is the very definition of boutique. It reeks of nonsensical transportation. It isn't the fastest. It doesn't handle the best. It isn't even the most luxurious. As such, there simply isn't a business case for the car on paper. Count us among the thankful that human desire has nothing to do logic. XCAR recently took the time to get personal with the Aero Coupe by exercising the machine through downtown London at night. The result is some beautiful videography of what Morgan calls "automotive theater."

It's a damn fine way to spend six and a half minutes of your day. You can watch the clip below for yourself to see what we mean. Just don't blame us if you start looking at your daily ride with a more jaundiced eye.

      Didn't they recently feature the construction of this car on a "How It's Made - Dream Cars" episode. Fascinating process to integrate the aluminum chassis with the classic Morgan wood components.

      just watched this car built on TV, extremely labor & detail intensive , specially the wood framing. I learned the repair trade back when all front fenders were really fenders & got in the way of engine access .

      I am so glad the rock stars and rappers havent discovered this car yet. It would be so sad to see a Morgan get cut up in a rap video or get trashified with donk rims and the like.

      I am kind of surprised there are not more companies using the classic 30s and 40s lines. safety requirements will certainly keep it out of the main stream, but with so many $100k+ cars out there, the market for something that just looks good cant be too small. particularly since 90% of super cars will never break 100mph...

        "Kind of"? Either you are or you aren't. Just spell it out--no one is gonna judge you, bro.

      I've always had a special place in my heart for the beauty of these cars. I imagine the people that buy these cars are the ones who would appreciate it. They are the types of people who pull around back instead of pulling up directly in front of a club. They walk in through back entrance, saying hello to all the employees and remembering everyone's names. Once inside, they act as though they are just the same as everyone else. That's how I see this car and the people that drive them. Elegant, yet humble, and should be appreciated more.

        All of the wood is dipped in a pesticide coating before assembly.

        The Aero 8/Aeromax models have an aluminium chassis.

        True, but anyone who owns one of these and parks it outside overnight (unless your mistress lives on the East Side) deserves to be horsewhipped. And Morgan will supply the crop.
