The Morgan Motors Morgan Aero 8 ($TBA) is touted as a "True British Sports Car." Morgan says it's their most refined Aero to date. The Aero was designed for the driver to experience the environment with the top down the vast majority of the time. The clam shell rear trunk hides the mohair hood, while the optional hard top transforms the Aero into a beautiful coupe.The Aero 8 is powered by a BMW 4799CC V8, paired with a 6 speed manny. This combination will push 370 horses with a max torque of 370 lb/ft. Top speed is 170 mph.Now these specs might not be chart topping, but lets get real. The Aero 8 was meant for cruising the countryside in style, not for hitting the track. But it's nice to know its got a little kick if you need it.
The T1 was popular in the 60's thanks to its unique looks and versatility, however this 500 horsepower Classic Volkswagen T1 Bus ($TBA) couldn't be further removed from its predecessors.

The boost in power and loss in excess weight means that this T1 can reach a credible top speed of 143mph.
