The famous aviation company, established in 1910, started the production of the luxurious Bristol 400 cars in 1946. The Blenheim model, manufactured
since 1993, was in October 1999 replaced with the modernized Blenheim 3, differing from its predecessor with new body styling and a modified interior design. The vehicle is provided with a new TS3 series engine, which is a modernized 5.9-liter 265 hp Chrysler Magnum unit developing 252 km/h. The luxurious Blenheim 3S version was launched at the end of 2001, and the Blenheim 3G version with the bi-fuel engine adapted both for petrol and LPG was introduced in 2002. In 2001 the new Fighter coupe with a 8.0-liter 525 hp V10 engine debuted, which went into production in 2003. In June 2005, the Fighter S with a 8.0-liter 628 hp V10 power plant was launched. The Blenheim Speedster with a 5.9-liter 390 hp V8 unit, which develops 258 km/h, made its debut in January 2003.
A brand new Bristol Bullet roadster debuted at Salon Prive London in 2016, but the company went defunct in 2020.
It was announced in January 2021 that Jason Wharton, an Essex-based property developer, and Bristol enthusiast bought the Bristol brand and is planning to reive it again... "Remastered" versions of the Fighter two-seater and the 411 four-seater should be launched during 2022 while the all-electric Buccaneer is scheduled for launch before 2025.
