The Bristol Fighter, a 200mph British supercar first unveiled in 1999 is now ready.

The chassis, with its Chrysler Viper 8 litre V10 mounted in front, is a strong steel structure to which a body of lightweight aluminium and carbon fibre is fitted. The car weighs about the same as a Ferrari 360 Modena but Bristol says that, with 525bhp, it will be significantly faster. It expects a maximum speed of 210mph and 0 to 60mph acceleration in 4sec.

The Fighter is a compact coupé the size of a Porsche 911. It is functional rather than pretty, but Bristol, which grew out of the aircraft company of the same name, insists aerodynamic efficiency has been put ahead of other considerations.

Bristol is very secretive about sales figures but claims to already have orders for the first year’s production of 20 Fighters at £229,125 apiece.
