BRISTOL 400

2-door saloon.

Looks what it is, a hand-made BMW-based saloon with windtunnel-derived aerodynamics, wood instead of plastic inside one-shot lubrication and a built-in radio. Most had 85bhp three-carburettor engines, though some earlier examples made with less powerful single-carb units. Timber-framed steel body.
