What is it with classic British sports cars; they all seem to end in disaster, don’t they?
The AC 3000 ME is one of my favourite cars, it’s so chunky and makes all the right noises. However, a combination of bad luck and bad boardroom behaviour means the car is more myth than legend. Most people have heard of one, not many have actually seen one in the flesh…or fibreglass.
For my latest classic car film, I’m delighted to say I was given the opportunity to get behind the wheel of possibly the best example of this unique car in existence. It has 4000 miles from new and is still on the original tyres it rolled out of the factory on – really!
So it was wheeled out of a private collection, for me to get it dusty. I hope you’ll agree it was worth it, and moreover that if – like me – you’re a big fan of these cars, you think I did this fantastic machine justice.
