AC ACE/ACE-BRISTOL

Sports 2-seater.

John Tojeiro's well-handling all-independently sprung chassis, with alloy body in style of Ferrari barchetta. The basically-1919 AC engine isn't really up to it, but with the Bristol's 120bhp (available from í56 on), there's 115mph on tap plus 0-60mph in 9secs. Overdrive from '56, front discs from '57 - latter initially as option. Much sought after.
