Introduced at the 1954 London Motor Show, the AC Aceca was a coupe grand tourer based off the AC Ace roadster. The AC Aceca-Bristol came in 1956 and was powered by a 2-liter, 6-cylinder Bristol engine based on the BMW 328 engine. Enabling greater performance than the AC engine originally fitted on the model, the new unit gave the car a solid basis for competition. The AC Aceca was equipped with all-around independent suspension, disc brakes in the front and drums in the rear. The chassis was light, using tubular frame and aluminum panels. Fiberglass was used to isolate the engine from the cabin for more comfort. Rubber bushings were fitted on the rear differential to reduce the noise and vibration.
