In the latest episode of his show, Jay Leno got behind the wheels of the new 2012 Iconic AC Roadster . The car was driven at the Boca Raton Concours d’Elegance event in Florida where Jay Leno had the chance to talk with the guy responsible for this project.
AC Roadster is powered by a 7.0-liter V-8 from Ford’s SVO division that delivers 825 horsepower and 660 lb/ft of torque mated to a six-speed manual transmission. Enough energy to sprint the car from 0 to 60 mph in less than three seconds and to a top speed in excess of 200 mph.
The question remaining is if there will be enough people willing to pay $475,000 for a car that according to Jay May is not just another replica.
