Among the aesthetic gems of this vehicle, there’s the presence of double round front headlights and gull-wing doors. The particular shape of the car allowed an extremely low aerodynamic coefficient of just 0.28.

The V10 engine of a Bristol Fighter

All the versions produced (Fighter, Fighter S and Fighter T) are equipped with a V10 8.0 engine produced by Dodge. The standard Fighter has a power of 525HP, which allows it to accelerate from 0 to 100km/h 4 seconds and reach a top speed of 340km/h; the Fighter S delivers 628HP, but, despite the considerable increase in power, its performance remains similar to that of the standard Fighter; the Fighter T is instead a hypercar in all its aspects: combined with a torque of 1405NM, its power of 1012HP makes the car accelerate from 0 to 100 in just 3,5 seconds and promises a top speed of 430km/h, although the Fighter T is electronically limited to 362km/h to prevent components (especially tires) from wearing out very quickly. The Fighter T was also the first mass-produced supercharged petrol car. As for the gearbox, in all versions you can opt for either a 6-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic.
