2006 Bristol Fighter T
8th November 2006, London – Responding to the needs of some exacting customers Bristol have created a very special Fighter variant which, as ever, remains a compact and enjoyable car to drive around town or as an exhilarating track car. Yet it takes two people and their luggage in great luxury and ease for trans continental travel. The Fighter T (which will be an addition to the range) answers these requirements without losing one iota of street level credentials.
The highlight of the car is a Twin turbocharged and intercooled 8 litre Viper V10 engine that produces 1012 bhp at 5600 rpm and 1036 lb.ft of torque at 4500 rpm. Bristol Cars have over a quarter of a century of turbocharging experience, for, in January 1980 they introduced UK’s first turbocharged car – the Bristol Beaufighter. The all aluminium uses two ball bearing, water cooled turbochargers with intercooling, uprated engine internals, high flow cylinder heads with high lift camshaft, a high capacity cooling system and a free flow exhaust with side exits.
Functional exterior styling changes and mechanical alterations to suit the extra performance. Aditionally, a lightweight sports interior is fitted.
A potential maximum speed of more than 270 mph has been electronically limited to a more than sufficient 225 mph at 4500 rpm. 0 to 60 mph in less than 3.5 seconds.
Bristol Cars believe that there is no other car with such a remarkable range of abilities.
