Description

Grey Metallic with Light Beige Hide.

The thinking behind the Bristol Fighter was to reflect the design values of one of the earliest Bristol cars of the 1950's, the 404, a 2-door fixed head coupe. The handcrafted, aerodynamically engineered bodywork is made from aluminium with carbon fibre composite doors and tailgate giving the car a kerb weight of 1500kgs and a drag of just 0.28. The chassis is box-section steel with a honeycomb aluminum floor. The Bristol Fighter features an 7996cc V10 Chrysler engine producing 525bhp (increasing to 550bhp when approaching 200mph thanks to the ram air effect on the intake system) and 525lb ft of torque which makes the car good for 0-60 mph in 4.0 seconds and a top speed of 210mph. Costing over GBP 230,000 when new EVO magazine described the Fighter as being "...like a Ferrari 599 made by Hush Puppy" and "The Bristol may not be a substitute for the almost indescribably exciting Ferrari, but it is a completely beguiling alternative". There were only ever 10 Bristol Fighters built in the companies existence and only 6 of these are registered in the UK, this car we know as being the last ever registered. The car has come to us out of a very good clients collection of cars and built to their specification from new has had sole ownership. The car is offered for sale in immaculate condition and welcomes serious enthusiasts.
