Bristol GT

Bristol GT

  The Bristol GT is the automaker's attempt to reinvent itself. It is an extended-range concept that is based on the Giugiaro Namir concept. No details have been reveled yet, but rumors suggest output nearing the 400-horsepower mark via four in-wheel electric motors and an 800 cc Wankel generator.

Bristol Cars is a British-based company founded in 1945 that specializes in developing hand-built luxury cars. The company produces only 20 units per year, but even so, it manages to maintain loyal clientele.

One of the most famous cars developed by Bristol was the Fighter - a sports car that can hit a top speed of about 200 mph. Along with that beast, the company has developed lots of other models and all of them used either BMW or Chrysler engines to power them.

Now Bristol wants to hit that 200 mph mark one more time, but this time in a new extended-range electric GT supercar. The model is still in its development process and will be shown in concept form at the end of this year.

It will use the same design language we saw on the 2009 Giugiaro-styled Namir supercar concept and will be offered with technology developed by Surrey-based technology group Frazer-Nash Research.

Note: pictures shown here are of the Giugiaro Namir Concept, not the Bristol GT.
