The Bristol badge has sat proudly on a succession of fast, reliable and expensive 6-, 8- and 10- cylinder cars since 1946. Though it was initially revered by the motoring press, an air of mystery descended over the marque throughout the 1980s and 1990s. Now under new ownership, Bristol is to be reborn with new state-of-the-art models proposed which aim to capture the excellence and exclusivity of the early models. As a compliment to the revival, this book celebrates the rich diversity of each model from Bristol Cars' production catalogue. Bristol Cars Model by Model provides a history of the development and production of each of the cars, including coachbuilt and racing models, with full specifications. It is richly illustrated with over 400 photographs.
Articles from international motoring journals cover the vehicle's production between 1946 and 2000. Bristol production started in 1946 with the 400 model and went on to include in 1949 the highly prized 402 - an elegant touring convertible. The 405 was produced in 1954 - the only 4-door Bristol ever made. With only seven made of the 406 Zagato, some of which had the more powerful 110S engine, making this car very desirable. These models were followed by the 407, 408, 410, 411, Beaufighter (the first British car to be turbocharged), 603E/603S, and Britannia, ending in 1993. Next was the Blenheim and now the Fighter which are being produced today.
First manufactured in 1945 and still produced today, Bristol cars have become a uniquely British institution that is celebrated in this comprehensive history, written by a dedicated Bristol owner of 50 years’ standing. The phrase ‘nicely understated’ captures the special qualities of these luxurious performance cars that are owned by car connoisseurs who appreciate their fine engineering, fine handling and discreet presence. This lavish book explores every detail of the company’s history and will appeal to all owners, past and present, as well as the many admirers of these cars.
During the 1960s, the automobile finally secured its position as an indispensable component of daily life in Britain. Car ownership more than doubled from approximately one car for every 10 people in 1960 to one car for every 4.8 people by 1970. Consumers no longer asked “Do we need a car?” but “What car shall we have?” This well-illustrated history analyzes how both domestic car manufacturers and importers advertised their products in this growing market, identifying trends and themes. Over 180 advertisement illustrations are included.
Presents a history of sports cars from the earliest models, to the hot rods of the 1950s and 1960s, to contemporary styles
