AC 3000ME

If there’s one thing that this particular AC is often remembered for, it’s the frustratingly long period it took for the car to go on sale. This superb looking mid-engined sportster was unveiled at the 1973 London Motor Show, yet the first customer-ordered cars weren’t delivered until ’79.

The 3000ME’s reputation suffered, which could explain why just 71 examples were sold by the time production cased in 1984 – a far cry from the anticipated production run of 250 cars annually. Nowadays though, this AC makes a great choice if you fancy a sporting classic with rarity appeal.
