A.C. 428 FASTBACK £7,252 (incl. P.T.)
You pay a handsome price for this superbly styled car–and in return get a handsome perfarrnance with craftsman-built luxury. It is something of an international car, with styling by Frua of Turin and a vast American engine to provide the searing acceleration that rockets it up to 60 in a fraction over six seconds, and keeps it rushing on to a top speed of 140 m.p.h. The engine is a 7-litre V8 from Ford packed under the sleek bonnet and driving the rear wheels through a manual or automatic gearbox. Suspension is fully independent. Sheer, unadulterated luxury travel.
