The Coolest Car You've Never Heard Of

XCAR bag a drive of the extremely elusive 8-litre V10 Bristol Fighter.

The Fighter is a wonderful oddity. It’s a novel experience to drive, a privilege as well. It makes me wonder what Bristol would have been like had it made more of them, had it been a bigger presence rather than the exclusive club it was in the end.

Bristol’s Fighter was an approach to modernism from a firm that was very much rooted in it’s own past. It has presence, power, and makes you feel a bit special even if some of the bits of it are a bit wonky. It’s a crying shame more people don’t get to enjoy these however if they did: would it have been so special?
