- Automatic example
The Brooklands Ace had made several public debuts before production finally got underway at AC's traditional manufacturing base at Brooklands, Surrey. Under guidance from Brian Angliss, ACs Managing Director, his team had taken seven years to develop the IAD-designed new model into production reality - no small task for any manufacturer, let alone a minnow such as AC Cars. Powered by Ford's 5.0 litre Mustang engine, the svelte body was handformed in aluminium with an emphasis on luxury and performance and also enjoys an electric hood. In all, only 49 were produced, some say 46!
Registered new on 4th October 1994, this AC is an automatic example and has had just three owners from new. Showing 137,980 miles from new this AC has been used as intended throughout its life. As such the paintwork is in need of some attention but the interior is presented in generally good condition throughout with a light patina to the leather seats. Offered with a history file containing many significant maintenance invoices, many previous MoT test certificates, the current V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid until March 2024. This AC has also been treated to a new battery in recent times and comes complete with its desirable registration number.
