Morgan Aero 8, credible or not?

How do you all rate the Morgan Aero 8 ?
A friends amazed me, by turning up in a used 2002 one. Rechons it cost him 2/3 new price.

Basic spec is:

Cost new circa £60,000 sterling
Radical all aluminium chassis and coachwork
BMW Z8 286bhp V8 + 6 speed
Kerb weight 1000Kg (less than a Mini Cooper)
Air con, leather std.
Leaky rag top and virtually no rear ward vision.
Works car entered Le mans this year but sadly didn't complete enough laps to be classed as finisher

After having driven the thing, I have to say I couldn't have been more wrong about what this car actually offers.
How do you all view this car and what does it say about the driver. Also why are used values so low ( for a Morgan)?
