Didn't see any thread for this car so I started a new one.<br>This is the newest car the low volume british company has ever made. Its said to be a 200mph car using a very aerodynamic body with a CDof 0.29( the best of any supercar). Power comes from a tuned viper engine producing 525hp, but that was recently increased to a whopping 620hp and 580lbft of torque in the Fighter S.<br> <IMG SRC="http://www.hizone.info/data/2003/05/07/images/Bristol-fighter.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br> <IMG SRC="http://www.bristolcars.co.uk/pics/BristolFighter1.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br> <IMG SRC="http://www.bristolcars.co.uk/pics/BristolFighter2.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br> <IMG SRC="http://www.bristolcars.co.uk/pics/BristolFighter3.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br> <br>Price 195 000 british pounds<br>Volume 20 vehicles every year ( the waiting list for this bizare car is up to the end of 2005).

IT looks like a mix of a corvette, a 1950's 300SL gullwing, and a TVR

I've walked past the one and only Bristol showroom in West London and even their new models look superannuated. This is an improvement in terms of not looking quite as old, but it ain't pretty.<br>DP's right about the mix of styles. Can't say I like it. Nice specs though.
