ACformerly known as Auto Carrierswas founded in 1901 and was one of the oldest independent British car manufacturers. The first model was the Weller, a 20-hp touring car. In 1947, AC was making the 2-liter car with a single seat and fiberglass body. The AC Ace was based on a light chassis and aluminum body, and was the basis for the 1957 Ace-Bristol that raced at Le Mans. The AC Aceca was an aluminum-bodies coupe introduced in 1954 with great aerodynamics. AC then produced the Greyhouse to meet the demand for a four-seat car. The rare AC Ace 2.6 was produced in less than 100 units, which makes it a rare classic nowadays. AC partnered with Carroll Shelby in 1962, pairing a Ford V8 engine with the Ace’s chassis and giving birth to the popular AC Cobra. At the same time, AC developed a grand tourer model for a wealthier clientele. In 1973, AC introduced the 3000ME, a mid-engine model with a 3.0-liter Ford V6 engine. The company kept working with Ford and producing sports cars such as the AC Ace V8, the AC 212 S/C, the AC MK and the AC 378 GT Zagato.
