New Car for JB:007 — Morgan Aero 8

The Black Campbell

I was toying with a character idea for a female 00 for a possible up-coming campaign and wanted something really distinctive for her. I wanted a fast, modern car, but something with a quirky, retro style so I turned to the venerable house of Morgan. I decided she needed a Morgan Aero 8, and specifically the hardtop Aeromax.

Established in 1910, Morgan is one of the oldest British car companies and is still turning out interesting designs like the Aero 8, their old roadsters, and the very nimble Three-Wheel (which got its start as a tax dodge for motorists in the 1930s.) Morgan was famed for their use of wood for their frames until very recently, when they switched to lightweight aluminum. The Aero has gone through a series of design tweaks since 2000, including the unfortunate “cross-eyed” period (image google the car…you’ll see what I mean.)

  1. You want some really “steampunk” action, check out the interior of the Pagani Huayra. Exposed gears, leather, aluminum…beautiful!
