The AC 378 GT Zagato started its life as a concept car, first shown at Geneva in 2009. Designed by Zagato (known also for its collaborations with motor industry British giants such as Aston Martin, Bentley, Bristol, Jaguar, MG and Rolls-Royce), the car was announced as the ‘Perana Concept’. As a result of the very positive public response received, the car is in full production.
With a kerb weight of only 1,465 kg and a power output of 434 bhp from its all-American GM 6.2 litre V8 engine – performance is electrifying. With an unrestricted top speed of 185 mph and a 0-60 acceleration time of sub 4 seconds there can be few doubts about the new car’s ability to perform in true AC style.
The AC 378 GT Zagato is now available to order with manual transmission, both in right hand drive form for the UK market and left hand drive for the German market. Launch prices for the AC 378 GT Zagato will be £89,990 in the UK and €109,990 in Germany.
