Sports Competition Roadster
AC Cars of Thames Ditton near London consulted the aristocratic motoring enthusiast, the Duke of Richmond and Gordon, Freddie March, for its new 16/80 sports model, which was launched in 1935. The 16/80 has a 2-litre, 6-cylinder, 80 horsepower engine and was very successful in prewar rallies and trials as well as on British circuits like Donnington and Brooklands. Only 42 of these two-seater roadsters were produced between 1936 and 1939 as well as several supercharged 16/90 models. No two cars were alike as each was individually hand built at the AC factory alongside the Thames in West London. All 42 cars were identical from the windscreen forward but each have a variety of unique features to the rear. The current owners of this example, who have several AC cars in their collection, acquired the car in 1998, and after restoring it, have enjoyed it on many rallies and tours.
