Car Description

- Interessante Renngeschichte
- "Historic Technical Passport"
- Umfangreich dokumentiert
- Vollständig restauriert

Beschreibung:

1953 vorgestellt, war der AC Ace der erste englische Seriensportwagen mit Einzelradaufhängung rundum. Er dominierte in den Folgejahren bei zahlreichen internationalen Sportwagenrennen. Die Erfolge wuchsen insbesondere, nachdem ab 1956 das hauseigene Triebwerk durch einen Bristol-Motor ergänzt wurde, der bislang im BMW 328 verbaut wurde. 1962 diente der AC Ace als Basis für die legendäre AC Cobra.

Zwischen 1956 und 1964 entstanden lediglich 466 Exemplare des AC Ace Bristol.

Der hier präsentierte AC Ace Bristol wurde gemäß vorliegenden Unterlagen im Juni 1956 an seinen ersten Besitzer, dem Schweizer AC Importeur Hubert Patthey in die Schweiz ausgeliefert. Patthey und der nachfolgende Eigentümer Michel Renaud bestritten mit dem Wagen verschiedene Rennen und erzielten beachtliche Erfolge. Die Renngeschichte ist durch zahlreiche historische Fotos und Zeitungsartikel gut dokumentiert.  In den 70er Jahren gelangte das Fahrzeug in den Besitz von Jean-Louis Klein, der ihn u.a. in LeMans einsetze.

Dieser original linksgelenkte Wagen wurde durch Markenspezialisten in England gemäß einer umfangreichen Rechnungsdokumentation über einen Zeitraum von drei Jahren vollständig restauriert. Ein „Historic Technical Passport“ und eine deutsche Zulassung liegen vor. Mit dem Bristol-Triebwerk ist der AC besonders gut motorisiert. Aufgrund seiner Renngeschichte und seiner Ausführung ist dieser Wagen ein interessantes Investment und gleichzeitig eine Eintrittskarte für viele hochkarätige Veranstaltungen.

Motor:
2-Liter Bristol Reihensechszylinder, Nr. 100D508 („matching numbers“), ca. 130 PS (Literaturangaben)

Description:

Introduced in 1953, the AC Ace was the first English production sports car with independent suspension all round. In the years that followed, it dominated numerous international sports car races. The successes grew especially after the in-house engine was supplemented from 1956 by a Bristol engine, which had previously been used in the BMW 328. In 1962, the AC Ace served as the basis for the legendary AC Cobra. "The car always does the right thing, at the right time." These words by John Bolster, the renowned test driver for Autosport magazine, help to explain why the AC Ace - launched at the London Motor Show in October 1953 - became a very popular sports car.

Between 1956 and 1964, only 466 examples of the AC Ace Bristol were built.

According to the documents available, the AC Ace Bristol presented here was delivered to its first owner, the Swiss AC importer Hubert Patthey, in Switzerland in June 1956. Patthey and the subsequent owner Michel Renaud competed in various races with the car and achieved considerable success. The racing history is well documented by numerous historical photos and newspaper articles. In the 1970s, the car came into the possession of Jean-Louis Klein, who used it in Le Mans, among other races.

In accordance with an extensive invoice documentation this original left-hand drive car was completely restored over a period of three years by marque experts in England. A "Historic Technical Passport" and a German registration come with the car. With its Bristol engine, the AC is particularly well motorized. Due to its racing history and its finish, this car is an interesting investment and at the same time a ticket for many top-class events.

Engine:
2-litre Bristol in-line six-cylinder, no. 100D508 ("matching numbers"), approx. 130 hp (literature data)
