Chassis no. SA9FASSA4BE004100. Yarwood Siren Blue over Roman Red and blue leather. 4.8/362hp BMW V-8, automatic, chrome wheels, side exhaust.

Evaluation: Located in Texas. Showing just 865 miles and essentially like new.

Bottom Line: Wearing a curious blend of classic Morgan traits (sweeping fenders and horseshoe grille) with flashier features (chrome wheels and extravagant boattail) the Morgan AeroMax coupe was the first Morgan to cost six figures (in GBP). An aluminum chassis and body keep the weight to barely 2500 pounds and a BMW V-8 gives it enough thrust to back up its good (or at least eye-catching) looks. Introduced in 2009 ahead of Morgan’s 100th birthday, the Aero SuperSports is the targa-roofed version, and only around 200 were built. No more than a handful made it to the States, carrying a base price of around $185,000. It has clearly appreciated a lot in the last decade, then, but there’s not telling when the next one of these eccentric English rolling sculptures will come to market and someone jumped at this rare opportunity.

Condition definitions
Condition #1: Concours
Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 vehicles is “concours.“
Condition #2: Excellent
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is “excellent.“
Condition #3: Good
#3 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. “Good” is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.
Condition #4: Fair
#4 vehicles are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, and perhaps the body has a minor dent. Split seams or a cracked dash, where applicable, might be present. No major parts are missing, but the wheels could differ from the originals, or other non- stock additions might be present. A #4 vehicle can also be a deteriorated restoration. “Fair” is the one word that describes a #4 vehicle.
Condition #5: Poor
Running, but battered, incomplete, and perhaps rusty.
Condition #6: Parts car
Parts car.
