Worth The Wait
Bristol Bullet

After waiting nearly a decade Bristol Cars has finally unveiled a new model just in time to celebrate the British manufacturer’s 70th anniversary as an airplane manufacturer. Their eye-catching commemoration is called the Bristol Bullet.

Bristol was facing insolvency five years ago when rescued by new owners. Fortunately, the wait has produced this luxurious front-engined roadster. The Bullet features a carbon composite body with a six-speed manual gearbox (or automatic as an option). It accelerates from 0 – 60 (96.6 km/h)mph in 3.8 seconds with a top speed of 150 mph (241 km/h). Its interior offers WiFi connectivity and allows smartphone mirroring through the embedded touchscreen display.

The Bullet will be a limited run of 40 units priced at £250,000. Pre-ordering has just begun with first deliveries in January 2017.
