A rare AC Frua Coupe from 1968 is listed by the Missouri-based dealer Hyman Ltd. The classic car seller is asking $269,500 for the retro sports vehicle.

According to Hyman, the car is a “serious competitor to Jensen and Aston Martin, with performance comparable with the European exotics from Ferrari and Maserati at a fraction of the cost”.

The Frua Coupe is powered by Ford’s FE block 7.0-liter (428-cubic inch) V8, similar to that found in the Ford Galaxie and the Shelby Mustang GT 500. It is also equipped with a 3-speed automatic gearbox.

Some time ago, during a test by Autocar, the car recorded a 0-100 km/h (0-60 mph) acceleration time of only 5.4 seconds and hit a top speed of 233 km/h (145 mph).
