Morgan teases Aero for Geneva debut
Is That A Supercharger We Hear?
The visual footage doesn't give us much to go on, focusing on the finely appointed interior and handmade craftsmanship typical of the British automaker's old-school products. But it does give us the chance to listen to the engine revving, which is always a good thing.
The rasp sounds distinctly like a V8 to our ears, and while not all of Morgan's models pack eight cylinders – the classic 4/4 packs four cylinders, the Roadster six and the 3 Wheeler just two – the Aero models which the previous teaser suggested is indeed powered by a 4.8-liter V8 engine sourced from BMW.
Listen close enough, though, and you might pick up the telltale whine of forced induction, leading us to believe that Morgan's new debut in Geneva next month will be a supercharged version of the Aero Supersports roadster or Aero Coupe. Considering those models already crank out 367 horsepower for a 4.5-second 0-62 time, the prospect of an even more powerful version strikes us as rather tantalizing indeed.
