Morgan to Sell Le Mans Aero 8 on Ebay

Source: Morgan | Published: November 4, 2004

It has nearly 500 bhp and certainly canít be described as "never raced or rallied."

The Morgan Aero 8 GTN Le Mans car which raced in the worldís greatest sports car races in 2004 at Le Mans in France, Spa Francorchamps in Belgium and Sebring in the US goes up for auction on on November 15.

The Aero 8 is being sold by the legendary Morgan Motor Co. and although it uses Morganís famed coach-built construction and an ash frame, this is a full-house race machine powered by a BMW 4.4 litre race engine.

Previous drivers include former Grand Prix star Jacques Lafitte, Adam Sharpe, Neil Cunningham, Keith Ahlers and Steve Hyde. The car is unique, ready to race and comes complete with a host of spares.

As the carís performance can only be described as mind-blowing, the Morgan team is even offering a two day handover and familiarisation package to the successful eBay Motors winner.

Claire Gilmartin, head of eBay Motors in the UK said: "Anyone who loves cars is fascinated by the Morgan mystique, and we expect considerable international interest in what could be one of the most valuable cars ever to be sold through"

To find the Morgan Aero 8 Le Mans car, simply go to on 15th November and put Morgan Le Mans into the search box.

Increasingly, rare and unique cars are being auctioned at Ebay, including a Ferrari Enzo which sold for over £500,000 (approx. $913,000) last weekend.
