Launched in 1956, the AC Aceca Bristol was the second generation of Aceca and was equipped with a Bristol enginean AC 2-liter unit powered the first models. The new engine gave the car more power, enabling a 0-to-60 acceleration in 9 seconds and a top speed of 116 mph. Linked to a four-speed manual gearbox with overdrive on option, the engine had a capacity of 2 liters and an output of 120 hp. The design of the AC Aceca was inspired by the AC Ace roadster and featured elegant and refined lines. As a coupe grand tourer, the Aceca was more comfortable than the convertible Ace. Rubber bushings were used on the chassis to limit noise and vibrations and the engine was isolated from the cabin with fiberglass for even more noise isolation.
