"Geneva 2012 marks a new beginning for the AC brand", said Mackenzie, "The company has suffered from a series of false starts in recent years but at the root of those has always been the lack of a proper manufacturing base. Now that it has entered into joint ventures with manufacturing entities with strong track records in producing cars which share the iconic AC pedigree, all that is firmly in the past".
   
   This bullish conclusion is from a new AC director with no known vehicle manufacture or sales credentials. It would seem that few AC Zagatos followed the prototype but the 378 GT could have been yet another AC limited edition venture, akin to the fifty car AC MkII Classic Special and nine car AC MkI Legacy editions.
