Good call- me too - it's interesting in a way an Aston Rapid just,... well... isn't.
Don't like it, it looks like a kit car. Give me a Beaufighter any day.

Not driven the Fighter (and possibly never will), but had a good look at one in their showroom last year. In the metal, it looks amazingly compact and benign, almost innocuous, none of the usual Germanic paranoid-aggressive styling.
If I ever win the lottetry, the one I want is the Fighter T. Quicker than a Veyron, by all accounts.

Not in the metal it doesn't. And you can buy my Beaufighter, although the engine is kaput...
Yes, I have seen an orange one (of all colours!) on the M4 last year. My God, what a beautiful car! I was in a Merc SL500 (no slouch) but I could not keep up. Fighter T is on my lottery list too.
Not a fan of the styling, but cars like the Fighter have their own idiosyncratic appeal. Long may cars like this and companies like Bristol exist. They make this world a more interesting place.

Hi Dan, I am the 412 registrar from the Bristol Owners Club. Is your car one that we have on our list - there are still some missing. You can contact me on wpr400sataoldotcom or through the BOC website. I'd love to hear about your car. Pip
p.s. if anyone else has a 412 or Beaufighter locally I am always delighted to get pictures for the records. : ))

No, but there was an article in this mag, can't remember the year, but the car was out of date then, the interior looked like a WW2 aircraft cockpit,and the company was trading on it's glory days when it produced fighter aircraft,plus, the MD was still living in that era.
