Setting up a VHT ad-hoc connection with ath10k

Dear all,

Recently, I bought some WLE900VX cards and equipped several computers 
with such cards.
I want to check the capabilties of these cards, so I have thought of 
establishing an AD-HOC 802.11ac link in order to do so.
I have been able to establish and AD-HOC connection between two of these 
cards, but I am sure I am not establishing an 802.11ac connection 
because the iwlist tool only reports bit rates up to 54Mb/s for the 
established connection.
I would be very grateful if someone could provide me some hints on 
configuring these cards to work using the 802.11ac and to check that the 
connection using such protocol has been established.

Thank you very much in advance for your time and attention,

With kind regards,
