AC introduced a four seater coupe to its model range in 1959, the Greyhound. The Greyhound shared many components with the smaller and lighter Ace range, including the same engine choices. Most cars used the 2 litre and 2.2 litre Bristol engines, although the original AC in-house design was available at first.

The Greyhounds coachwork looked elegant and contemporary, the suspension featured coil springs which gave good ride comfort at the expense of the sharp handling that the Ace enjoyed. Production lasted until 1963, by then only 83 cars had been built and sold.
