Morgan has been building cars since 1909, and is in the process of reformulating itself for the current era. The Aero 8 GT3 is a racing version of the company's Aero 8 production car.

Morgan built a version of its Aero 8 for the U.S. market, which meant it had to comply with U.S. Department of Transportation requirements. The Aero 8 America has airbags and antilock brakes. Its 4.4-liter BMW-sourced V8 complies with California emissions standards.
