AC 3000ME

2-seater coupe.

Diablo prototype bought by AC, completely re-developed, with Ford (UK) V6 engine, mounted transversely behind seats, and special transmission. First shown behind seats, and special transmission. First shown 1973, not sold until 1979. Slower than styling suggests (120mph), because only 138bhp. Too simple, too late, perhaps, needing more exotic performance? Later 'made in Scotland' project failed.
