Bristol hybrid supercar waiting in the wings
The Namir was a series hybrid with a total of 362 horsepower, a 0-to-62 mile per hour acceleration time of 3.5 seconds, a claimed top speed of 187 mph and 91.7 US miles per gallon. The new Bristol could employ the same powertrain, according to a report in Autocar, "a compact rotary" that powers the lithium ion battery pack, that powering the electric motor driving all four wheels.
We might not be close to the finish – Frazer-Nash hasn't said when this new Bristol will arrive, nor who will design it. It has said, though, that it has "firm intention" to build the car.
