Description: 1963 AC MA-200 V8 Prototype
Code named MA-200 by the AC Company, this car was designed and built at the Thames Ditton factory in 1962 and was designed to replace the aging AC Ace line. This prototype is one-of-one. The MA-200 was envisioned at the same time as the Carroll Shelby Cobra, which fueled a swirl of controversy as to whether or not this was to be the "Cobra." It as built with one of the earliest HO 289 Ford V8 engines cast. Many consider the MA-200 to be the "missing link" in the lineage of the AC Ace/Cobra.

Designed by a former aircraft engineer, the MA-200 was way ahead of its time, with a space frame, inboard F1 style front suspension and inboard rear disc brakes. This car was designed and coachbuilt at the AC factory, years before the AC/Frua 428 and the Frua Maserati Mistral - both of which share striking similarity to the MA-200.
