The heart of the Bristol road cars was the old, but sturdy BMW 328 six cylinder engine. This engine was first used in England in the Frazer Nash badged 328s before the War and would be used into the 1960s. Bristol tuned the engine to produce over 130bhp, which was a power increase of 50bhp over the original unit. For this sporty chassis Arnolt had Bertone‘s Franco Scaglione pen a new roadster body. At the 1953 London Motor Show the new Arnolt Bristol was unveiled and received universal acclaim. There were three different versions available; the stripped down ‘Bolide‘ racer, the luxurious ‘Deluxe‘ road car and a coupe. Only a handful of the coupes were built, a fraction of the 142 car production run. It is believed that most of the cars were assembled in 1954 and 1955 with production pretty much end
