The AC 428 is a grand tourer produced by the British car manufacturer AC Cars between 1965 and 1973. The car was designed to compete with other high-end grand tourers of the era, such as the Aston Martin DB6 and the Jensen Interceptor.
The AC 428 was powered by a 7.0-liter V8 engine produced by Ford, which was capable of producing up to 345 horsepower. The engine was mated to a four-speed manual or three-speed automatic transmission. The car’s chassis was a modified version of the AC Cobra’s, with an independent suspension system that provided a comfortable ride.
The AC 428 featured a sleek and aerodynamic body, which was designed by Italian coachbuilder Frua. The car’s styling was characterized by its long hood, short deck, and elegant lines. The interior of the car was also luxurious, with leather seats and a wooden dashboard.
Despite its impressive performance and luxurious features, the AC 428 was not a commercial success. Production was limited to just 81 cars, making it a rare and highly sought-after classic today.
