After inventing the Ace, popularly known as Brooklands Ace, AC had all they needed - tools and a plan to build their new car. Their idea was to assemble a 2+2 coupe based on identical stainless-steel chassis and Ford underpinnings. It proved itself an inspired decision as it quickly became one of the company's most successful models.
In 1998, the Aceca featured two slim and even headlights in contrast to its roadster congener. However, a revised version of this car was released later that year with flush glass-covered headlights integrated into the bodywork. Although the general shape remained similar to that of its sibling's, several panels from behind were adjusted from their original position at A-pillar onwards. An elegant cabin fitted snugly on top of a rounded greenhouse having an inclined window above the trunk defined it all; whereas a duck-tail ended off right below pair og round rear lights - making quite an impression.
Within, the automaker managed to fit a bench for two in the rear seat as well as provide an abundance of space up front. Read more
Depending on yours preferences, the Aceca boasted a variety of three engines ranging from 3.5 to 5.0 liters as standard features and included a five-speed manual transmission with an optional four-speed automatic gearbox for those wanting extra convenience.
The model sold in limited numbers, with only 488 vehicles built during its three-year production run. It was a low-volume production car that appealed to collectors and enthusiasts alike.
