We were privileged to get to know and work alongside John Tojeiro (designer of the original AC Ace) during his time as technical director of DJ Sportscars.
John was not only a gifted automotive engineer but also a warm and immensely likeable, quintessential country gentleman and is still sadly missed. His passion for mechanical engineering and fast cars was limitless and we always looked forward to his traditional first drive whenever we produced a new model or derivative. The enduring appeal of his original sports racing car design gave John enormous pleasure and, as a true engineer, he was always eager to see it evolve and improve through continued technological advance.
The new XCS 427 is the culmination of decades (even generations) of knowledge & experience and takes the marque firmly into the 21st century.Its dynamic capabilities set new standards with superb road holding & handling, a totally compliant roll-free ride, impeccable straight-line stability and exceptional levels of grip. And all is enjoyed from a well-tailored, full-leather interior, customised for optimum driver comfort and control.
The new XCS 427 is a truly remarkable and groundbreaking car that seamlessly combines the best of old & new - and it's one that we know John would have relished driving.

The Camber Compensation & Anti - Roll System
The patented CC&AR system is uniquely able to optimise the all-important contact between tyre and road and so maximise grip, composure and predictability - while at the same time providing an exemplary ride.
To find out more about how to system works and its other technical benefits (including its ability to reduce roll without incurring jacking - or indeed the need for anti-roll bars), check out our CC&AR pages.
