For those Top Gear fans amoung us, you may remember Richard Hammond’s very unique purchase several years ago. Hammond was lucky enough to purchase a Morgan Aeromax, one of only 100 ever made . The Aeromax like all other Morgan’s are carefully crafted, by skilled craftsman, out of wood. Using wood to produce cars creates an interesting driving experience as it allows a flex in the chassis, making Morgans very different from most other sports car.
Take a look at Motor Verso’s walk-through tour of the Morgan factory.
Currently in Australia
The car is currently in Australia and if you are even thinking of purchasing it, don’t forget that Hammond did have an accident with it a few years ago, and he isn’t known for having small car accidents remember!
