    I love the Morgan Aero 8 as well. Im not to crazy about the paintjob it has in the picture though.
    A rich independant team with no sponsors and a cool black paintjob would be so sweet

    Does anybody here think "Damocles" knows what he's talking about? I am not a big fan of this style of car, but i like this. very simple, very light and packing a powerful V8. Stunning. There is a tremendous amount of thought gone into this car. They kept the weight down, power up, chassis tight and aerodynamics sweet. I say "Well Done"!

    This will own the new vette. Even if the new vette only weighed 3000 pounds, it would have to have 681 bhp to have the same power/weight ratio. Besides, who would cross shop this and a vette. This is a quality hand built machine, and is exclusive, hence the high price.

    I'm always around hot rods (30's-60's cars) and even I have to say this is ugly. BUT WHO CARES?? 500 hp in that little thing would be some shit. Only thing that looked like more fun was a 800 hp Morris Minor I saw at the last Goodguys show I went to in Tampa. Oh, the 800 hp was before nitrous, and no, it wasn't the original engine (it was a blown Ford V8).

    I love how you guys keep saying " oh wow, it's so light and powerful...it would be so fast against street cars like the 'vette and the viper...bla bla bla", but you seem to be forgetting one thing: IT'S A RACE CAR! This car is not street legal, so any comparison made to a street car is null and irrelevant. It runs slick tires, has a carbon fiber body and various carbon fiber pieces throughout, it's interior is stripped down to only necessities, and every possible pain is taken to make it as fast as possible ON THE RACE TRACK. And it's not fast either. It's being beaten into the ground by the Porsches and Ferraris, and if the Callaway C12R ( a derivative of the corvette which some of you have said is so inferior to this car) were at Le Mans this year it would slap this thing around like a red-headed step child. After all, the Callaway claimed pole in the GT class last year. So, 1. this car shouldn't be compared to street cars since its maximium power and minimum weight are determined by someone other than the engineers that built it (the A.C.O. has final say on those specs), and it's not street legal by any stretch of the imagination 2. this car is not that fast compared to its competition, so don't kid yourselves.
