Default AC makes a comeback

As far as birthday offerings go, this one's a goodie. To mark its 110th birthday, not only is AC Cars turning up to the Geneva motor show, but it'll be bringing its latest showpiece, the AC MkVI.

The stunning newcomer is staying loyal to the design and style of an AC Cobra and although it isn't bringing anything new to the party, (it uses the 430bhp V8 unit from a Corvette, for example) the curvy muscle car will at least benefit from a new cross-Atlantic partnership with AC Germany, which sees the company that recreated the Gullwing Mercedes coupe take charge of the MkVI's production - adding a good dose of Teutonic-build quality and hand-craftsmanship to the MkVI's hefty price tag of 109,000 (that's about 93,294 and doesn't include taxes).

However, it won't just be the Germans that'll be getting their hands on AC-badged cars. An AC Heritage Centre, located at the top of the historic Brooklands test hill in Surrey, will be formally opened later this year and will be home to a production range of AC classic cars, while displays of cars and artefacts will be on show for AC fans within the Brooklands Museum Complex.

Good news across the pond, too: Iconic Motors has adopted the AC brand for its ultra-high performance car, the Iconic AC Roadster (see picture below), which comes decked out with a stonking 6.8-litre Detroit V8 that puts out an incredible 825bhp and 680lb ft, giving it a top speed of 210mph and a jaw-dropping 0-60mph time of less than three seconds.

Anyone wanting to get their Corba kicks at the Geneva motor show should make their way to stand 1035, where they'll find the AC MkVI as well as an original AC Ace - the model which became the infamous AC Cobra.
