Continuing our coverage of RM Auctions‘ “Quintessentially English” sale at the Salon Privé luxury car show and Concours d’Elegance in London on June 23, we present this stunning 1960 AC Aceca Bristol.

The stylish motor, from the British AC Cars company, was based on the AC Ace which Carroll Shelby used as the inspiration for his famed Cobra.
