to the Bristol Fighter S is the character created by a 8-litre
V 10 engine. By using a large, basic naturally aspirated engine Bristol have reduced maintenance requirements
and the problems often associated with smaller capacity engines
running on the limit. A 6 speed close ratio manual gearbox
is standard with an automatic transmission optional.
A front mid-engine layout gives a 52% rearward weight bias
for improved traction, handling balance and responsiveness.
exterior is made from hand beaten aluminium, Mixed with modern
composite panels. The body pf the Fighter S was designed to
control the airflow over every surface. Lift and drag characteristics
are optimised using the same principles as Land Speed Record
cars. There are no wings or spoilers. High speed stability is
achieved by the aerodynamic body shape alone.
The Fighter S has an opulent interior trimmed with Wilton carpet,
extra soft leather and extra thick soundproofing underlays.
