Pros & cons


Effortless style, superb performance, BMW engine and gearbox, unique hand built cabin


Limited practicality and safety features, expensive to buy and run

For sheer character and charm, few cars can match the Morgan Aero 8. It may be hand built and with a traditional look, but the Morgan is a thoroughly modern sports car that uses an aluminium chassis while power comes from a BMW V8 engine. This gives it a 0-62mph time of less than five seconds and it feels even faster from behind the wheel. The original model had an unfortunate cross-eyed appearance, but a revised model, introduced in 2006, was a huge improvement.

Designed and built in Britain it has a uniqueness few similarly priced cars can match and there are more dealers around than you’d think. However, that doesn’t stop it being expensive to buy and run.
