The New Bristol Bullet

The New Bristol Bullet

Bristol Cars have been manufacturing luxury cars since 1947 when it all began with the Bristol 400.  Now, for the first time in 13 years a brand new model is going to hit the road!

5 years ago Bristol Cars was rescued from insolvency.  The new owners found a long forgotten about roadster, hidden under tarpaulins, covered in dust, in an old factory.  This abandoned car provided the inspiration behind the new Bullet and ignited the desire to celebrate everything that had made Bristol Motors so special.

The Bristol Bullet will mark the 70th Anniversary of Bristol Cars.  Only 70 will be handmade in Chichester, with production due to begin early 2017.  The exact price hasn’t been revealed, but it is confirmed to be under £250,000 with a significant proportion already sold.

The body is manufactured from carbon fibre components to create a lightweight structure with an overall weight of 1250kg.  The outside has a retro look with the grille, wings and bonnet all designed as a subtle connection to Bristol Motors roots as an aeroplane manufacturer.

Inside is pure luxury with a vintage look.  Despite this appearance the Bullet has up to date technology we have come to expect in any car.  A multi touch screen is embedded into the dashboard.  Digital radio, smartphone connectivity, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are all provided.

Under the bonnet lies a 4.8 litre V8 ‘Hercules ‘engine that has been manufactured by BMW and finished by Bristol.  It ensures the Bullet lives up to its name and is really quick.  Achieving 0-62 mph in 3.8 seconds and a top speed of 155mph.

The Bullet celebrates 70 years of design and innovation at Bristol Cars.  This unique speedster sets the tone for the future of Bristol Cars – with a focus on luxury, performance and elegance” ~Julian Ramshaw, General Manager of Bristol Cars
