Additional Info: Uses the 404 series Bristol chassis from Bristol Cars UK and the 1971cc six cylinder engine from BMW, although some have now been modified with various other engines. 4 versions were produced: a stripped out road racer and a slightly less stripped out ‘Bolide’ road racer, a ‘Deluxe’ with leather upholstery, full weather gear and full windscreen and a few ‘Coupes’ were also built. Most of these cars were built between 1954 and 1959.
