Those of you with keen eyesight may have noticed a BMW key dangling from the ignition of the naked Morgan Aero Supersports in Geneva last week. We have asked a Morgan representative to explain.

What said key prods to life is, of course, a BMW product: a 4.8-liter V8 engine, specifically an N62B48, which is the current version of the 2002 International Engine of the Year-winning N62.

One more of life’s pressing questions answered! Also, if you’re about to spend close to two hundred grand on a roadster, no one will think you’re a poor schmuck who can only afford an entry-level 1 Series.
