The Ace is back and it’s electrifying! The brand-new AC Ace RS electric is modelled after the original AC Ace which first launched in 1954 and paved the way for the creation of the legendary Cobra in the 60s. The new and improved Ace is designed to keep in line with the long history of the AC heritage and helps the brand continue to move into a new era – we bring you the original AC Ace, with an electric engine!
A NEW ERA
AC has stepped into a new direction in building the legendary sports cars with zero emissions. Having successfully launched the AC Cobra Series 1 electric, the AC Ace RS electric, like with all AC cars, will be hand-built from scratch with the same care and precision distinctive of British motor engineering, paired with new cutting-edge technology.
Despite its classic styling the new AC will deliver a 0-62mph time of around 5.5secs and 500Nm of torque (peak), ensuring that it’s in a different performance league to the Ace of old. The AC Ace RS electric will achieve around 200 emissions-free miles on a single charge.
UNDENIABLY THE ACE
With its undeniable beauty and spirited performance, the classic sports car was a British favourite in the post-war years as it captured the hearts of car enthusiasts throughout its production for nearly a decade.
The new AC Ace RS electric will wear an AC Cars chassis number, using the more advanced Mk IV AC chassis, ensuring the marque’s traditional values and delivers customers an expertly crafted, brand new electric car.
Based at the UK’s historic racing circuit Brooklands, Surrey, our specialist team will be responsible for tailoring each car to your specification.
