The Bristol 408, along with its predecessor the 407, was the first of the eight-cylinder cars produced by the exclusive Bristol Car Company. With its origins in the Bristol Aircraft Company based in Filton in the west of England, Bristol Cars had a reputation for building cars to aircraft standards with exceptional reliability and performance, as well as bespoke luxury. The Bristol 408 was no exception and also featured a large V8 engine linked to automatic transmission, which provided the performance that enabled it to compete against other luxury performance cars from Jensen, Jaguar and Aston Martin.
Lavishly illustrated throughout, this book tells the full story of this exceptional automobile.
