The AC Aceca was introduced in 1954 and was a coupe grand tourer based on the AC Ace convertible that came out earlier. A 2-liter AC engine powered the first cars. In 1956, AC introduced a new Bristol engine for the AC Aceca and renamed the model the AC Aceca-Bristol. The new unit was based on the pre-war BMW 328 engine. With 6 in-line cylinders, a 2-liter capacity and 3 downdraught carburetors, the new model had a power output of 120. Linked to a slick four-speed gearbox with overdrive, the car was smooth and could accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 9 seconds with a top speed of 116 mph. From 1957, front disc brakes were made available on option and were later standardized.
