The AC Ace was a successful roadster based on racecar unit and constructed for a decade, from 1953 to 1963. Three different engines powered the car. The first one was a 2-liter, straight-six, AC unit. A Bristol, 120-hp engine was introduced in 1956. In 1961, the AC Ace was available with a new 2.6-liter unit previously mounted on the Ford Zephyr. Some versions were tuned up to 170 hp, reaching a top speed of 130 mph and going from 0 to 60 mph in close to 8 seconds. The AC Ace offered great handling and performance thanks to its light chassis and tubular frame with all independent transverse leaf spring suspension. The model was also equipped with overdrive and disc brakes. The famous AC Cobra succeeded to the AC Ace and the AC Acecathe coupe version.
