Bristol 400 Coupe - Refined Luxury For Sale (1948)

The Bristol Aeroplane Company of Filton, Bristol procured the rights to BMWs automotive designs as part of the reparations made by Germany at the end of WW2. And thus, the Bristol 400, which commenced production in 1947, was the fusion of three pre-war BMW designs. Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery but the Bristol 400 is a more refined luxury car. It was the very first automotive product from the Bristol Aeroplane Company-later to become Bristol Cars Ltd. The aerodynamically designed Bristol 400 body-work is made with steel panels over a wooden frame and the doors, bonnet and boot-lid are skinned with aluminium. Surprisingly lighter than all the later alloy bodied Bristol cars. The car features an unusual opening rear window introduced part way through its production run. The 2 litre overhead valve straight 6-cylinder engine was considered technically futuristic due to its hemispherical combustion chambers developing 80hp at 4,500rpm with a top speed of around 148 km/h (92 mph). In addition to the 400's beauty and sophistication the most significant advancements from the BMW DNA was Bristol's use of the highest quality metallurgical materials contributing to a longer engine life.
