AC Cars Ltd one of the first automobile companies of Great Britain who specializes on production of exclusively sports cars which were always distinguished from other representatives of the automobile industry with excellent dynamic and racing signs.
AC - English automobile firm which founder was an engineer John Veller and the rich butcher John Portvayn. In the market the company took the first steps in 1901. Two years later there was the first car crew for four people. Its presentation took place in London where that received good marks. The car was created first of all for transportation of post correspondence. In 1907 this car turned in passenger thanks to what there was a new creation of AC Sociable. In 1921 the head of plant I became S.F. Ej. From this point the company started making sports cars. Five years later goods of the company received 1.5 l engines, and in some months the EXPERT of Cars LTD set up a high-speed record - 100 miles/hour.
After World War II of AC created the first cabriolets which had engines in two liters. To Carroll Shelby the chief designer of the company, it turned out to deliver the V-shaped eight-cylinder engine from Ford on the extralight AC chassis. Thanks to it in 1962 there was a "strong" AC Cobra model which differed in high power with a small weight. The sports car was innovative and meaning that had disk brakes on all wheels. Soon on the car put the new power unit of "Ford" of 4.7 liters. Thanks to it in sports meets from the second line of AC Corvette managed to displace, having left ahead only Ferrari. Mostly it is the same Shelby's merit.
In 1996 AC Cars LTD united with Pride Automotive Group Inc. Thanks to new cooperation in 1992 at the Turin exhibition of cars the most powerful sports cabriolet - AC Ace was presented. Right there was also AC Aceca sport car. Later specialists of the company in addition developed modifications of AC Cobra Mk IV which, however, because of low demand among consumers ceased to be issued soon in principle. In this regard soon assembly of cars of the AC brand from Great Britain moved to the island of Malta.1 - 33
