Introduced in 1953, the AC Ace was a two-seater roadster based on a racecar model. Using a simple and light chassis with a large-tube construction, the AC Ace was a well-built and efficient sports car. Its engine was a light alloy overhead cam with six straight cylinders and 90 hp, linked to a Moss gearbox. Top speed was recorded above 100 mph and the car was smooth and precise, with great handling. Suspension was independent all around and used wishbone and transverse leaf spring. The body was gorgeous, featuring curvy shapes and a nose resembling Touring’s early Barchetta designs. A coupe version came out in late 1954 to complement the range and was named the AC Aceca.
