Notice the body-colored aspect mirrors, flush door handles, seen carbon fiber outlines across the large fenders and rocker panels, and the unmistakable spherical LED headlights with daytime lighting. Oh, and massive wheels, after all.
AC Vehicles already hinted at chassis and drivetrain particulars in the course of the December launch. The roughly 3,300-pound automotive is constructed on an aluminum spaceframe chassis with race-tuned suspension beneath. It’s stated that the GT Roadster, powered by a 654 horsepower supercharged Ford 5-liter V-8, can attain 62 mph (100 kph) in 3.4 seconds. It tops out at 173 mph, however we suspect that AC is constructing this automotive to sort out corners with ease as an alternative of going quick in a straight line. An non-obligatory six-speed handbook or a 10-speed automated sends energy to the wheels.
