Ex-Ian Fleming AC sports coupe to be auctioned

Richard Bremner

A 1962 AC Aceca Coupe once owned by James Bond creator Ian Fleming is coming up for auction on September 17th at the Goodwood revival event in Sussex. The restored Aceca is forecast to sell for around £130,000.

It's fitted with a 2.6 litre Ruddspeed tuned Ford Zephyr engine, one of only eight Acecas built to this specification, of which a surprising six still survive.
