Bristol 1971

411 (V8 cyl, 6277 cc, 335 bhp-SAE; wb: 9ft 6in)

Great Britain

£7,537 (incl. P.T.)
A hand-made luxury car, which gets its powerful performance from a vast 6.2 litre Chrysler engine. So the Bristol 411 is an extremely interesting amalgam of traditional craftsmanship of the very highest order with the brute force of an American V8 engine. There's a Chrysler three-speed automatic gearbox too, and on the standard axle, the 411 is good for a very creditable 140 m.p.h. Automatic ride height levelling has been introduced for the rear suspension and detail improvements further improve this luxury carriage for four.
