Bullet by Bristol Cars
Those of you who appreciate British classic cars, old-school designs and craftsmanship, you should be aware that Bristol is back. The car manufacturer has designed and developed the Bullet, its first new car in 10 years and only the 18th model to ever roll out the factory gates. The hand-built speedster was meant to join in the celebration of the brand’s 70th anniversary and features exterior styling evocative of retro aviation complemented by modern day building techniques and technologies. Under that sleek exterior, you will find a naturally aspirated 4.8-liter V8, courtesy of BMW, tweaked to output 370 hp and 370 lb ft of torque and connected to either an automatic or six-speed manual transmission.
As a result, the Bullet will easily do 0 to 62 mph in just 3.8 seconds and max out at 155 mph. Also worth mentioning is that the Bullet’s body is hand-built in Chichester, England, from carbon fiber composites that explain the low weight curb of 2,425 lbs. Since production is set to begin early next year, with the company to offer a limited-series of just 70 units, you could understand the £250,000 ($329,018) price-tag. We’re used to play large amounts of money for stylish and luxurious British sedans; but will Bullet get the attention it deserves?
