2008 Bolwell Nagari
Bolwell Car Company has released the first pictures of its new high-performance Nagari sports car.
Scheduled for its public debut at 5pm on 29 February at the Melbourne Motor Show, the Nagari is beginning final assembly at Bolwell’s Melbourne factory.
Campbell Bolwell is nearing the end of a three-year design and development program to produce a car designed for ultimate performance in Australian road conditions.
Designed to double as an everyday driving car, the low gearing and light weight ensure blistering acceleration, still with enough room for the shopping or the golf clubs.
Styling cues from the original Nagari can be seen in the latest incarnation, with the distinctive tunnel back opening to reveal the engine housing, spare tyre well and luggage space.
Serious production-car touches include a unique, custom-designed windscreen and compound-curvature, fully opening door windows.
Melbourne International Motor Show is organised and promoted by the Victorian Automobile Chamber of Commerce through its dealer division the Australian Automobile Dealers Association (Vic).
