Default Bristol Bullet Set to Debut July 26 with BMW V8 Power

Bristol Bullet Set to Debut July 26 with BMW V8 Power

Bristol Cars has announced the production nameplate for its Project Pinnacle.

The British automaker introduced the Project Pinnacle concept at the 2016 Goodwood Festival of Speed, and now it is teasing the Bristol Bullet that will debut on July 26. Although there arenít very many details on Bristol Carsí first real product since 2011, the Bristol Bullet will be powered by a 4.8-liter V8 engine sourced from BMW. Its chassis will be made from lightweight, carbon fiber materials instead of aluminum, which was used on previous Bristol models.

The Project Pinnacle concept that debuted at Goodwood was developed to celebrate the automakerís 70th anniversary in 2015 and is the first car from Bristol since the Fighter that was sold from 2004 to 2011. The company chose to use a V8 engine to pay respect to its history, rather than turn to an electrified powertrain, which was first rumored.

Expect the Bristol Bullet to head to production early next year and it will draw heavily on Project Pinnacle.
