BRISTOL 406

2-door saloon.

Angular 2-door body better looking than the four-door 405. Same spare wheel location, but steel-framed body. Enlarged engine gives better torque characteristics but the same 105bhp; overdrive and four-wheel disc brakes standard and appointments most luxurious. Well honed and delightfully conceived, but rather overweight, and the earlier 'sixes' may be preferable.
