Morgan Aero 8 Engine

In order to comply with the US emission levels, we have had to change the Morgan Aero 8 engine. We will be fitting the N62 4.4 litre V8 from BMW . This will be the version fitted to the upcoming 6 and 8 series, and as fitted in the 540 next year. This engine is even better than the current, with 330 Bhp, a lot more torque, yet still classified as a LEV unit. This means that we have no issues in selling the cars in any "Californian" emission level state.

The new Morgan Aero 8 engine installation has undergone the same rigorous programme that BMW use in any of their own installations. This includes hot weather testing in Death Valley as well as the emissions and noise testing.

Morgan Aero 8 Transmission

The Morgan Aero 8 gearbox remains a 6 speed, but now made by ZF (for BMW)
There will be no auto available, and although BMW make their superb SMG paddle shift which can function as an auto, they do not yet have it available for their V8 engines. You will be asked, and this is the response.

Morgan Aero 8 ABS

Bosch have been developing their system for the Morgan Aero 8. This uses the latest technology that will allow us to conform to the next generation of systems. The front brake disc sizes will be further increased to a massive 360mm and the callipers will become 6 pot at the front, and are enlarged at the rear. The car will have a separate hand brake calliper.

The test drivers at Bosch, who drive everything, are amazed at its stopping power. Quite remarkable apparently.

One of the key advantages of using Bosch as a technology partner is that we can benefit from their other systems. The Aero will have EBD (Electronic Brake Distribution), a very sophisticated system which varies the braking capability of each wheel and DTC (Drag Torque Control) which prevents the rear wheels locking when too low a low gear is selected on a damp surface during rapid deceleration.

We firmly believe that Traction Control spoils the driving fun and experience in any car. The Aero will not be fitted with Traction Control.

Morgan Aero 8 Airbags

The development of Airbags for the Aero 8 is being handled by Siemens in Germany. The car will be equipped with both driver and passenger bags. We have currently undergone over 10 full crash tests plus 10 sled tests (slightly less destructive) and are currently working on side and rear impact tests. The car has performed remarkably well, and we do not anticipate any problems here.
