4Bristol teases new car, will debut in 2015

Bristol Cars is one of those boutique British brands that is well beyond its heyday in the '50s and '60s; see also Peerless or Sunbeam. But what makes Bristol different is that it's still around today.

8Bristol Cars saved by... Frazer-Nash?!

Ill-fated Bristol Cars has reportedly been rescued from the perils of administration by an unlikely savior. Kamkorp Autokraft, a Swiss company that's part of the Frazer-Nash empire, officially bought the British automaker after it was forced to make 22 members of its 25 person staff redundant last month. According to PistonHeads, Kamkorp Autokraft says it intends to blend the Bristol Cars tradition of building beautiful vehicles with the alternative-energy knowledge amassed by Frazer-Nash. The n
