The Bristol ‘Bullet’ is revealed:
Bristol Cars has released the new sports car, officially named the ‘Bullet’ and celebrating 70 years of Bristol
Early indication of ‘Project Pinnacle’ hinted at the development of an electric powertrain for Bristol’s flagship, from potential collaboration with Bristol Automotive Group’s partner, electric drivetrain specialist Fraser Nash. However, it has since been confirmed that the Bullet will be powered by a BMW sourced, 4.8-litre naturally-aspirated V8, set to produce around 400bhp. It will be specifically tuned to give more low end torque, meaning a 0-62mph time of around five seconds.
The cars will be constructed in Surrey and are expected to enter production at the start of 2017. A plug-in hybrid luxury flagship GT is set for reveal at a later date.
