1998 Bristol Blenheim

If you haven't heard of Bristol cars, then you're not alone. The Bristol car company produced exclusive, hand-built luxury saloons that were extremely expensive. For the super rich, these are vehicles that are hard to come by, and definitely something very different than the norm.

The Bristol Blenheim is the flagship for the Bristol car company, and was the only vehicle that has been built until the long winded development of the Fight and the Speedster models was complete. The Bristol company name reflects a long and proud aeronautical history.

The Blenheim vehicle was produced with many methods long abandoned by all but an assortment of British sportscar builders. The Blenheim was introduced in 1977 and was debuted by a company that was the first to offer a vehicle that ran on both petrol and LPG (liquid petroleum gas). The current LPG model in the range is the Blenheim 3G.

The Blenheim has a lot of strength in the event of an accident, since Bristol equipped the vehicle with an ultra stiff structure. To allow for more trunk space, the Blenheim hides extras, like the battery and spare wheel in the wings. The body shell of the Blenheim was designed uniquely and with much care to allow for as much space as possible, while still being narrow enough to whip through traffic.

A large Chrysler V8 engine was used in the Blenheim, a traditional engine used for the Bristol Company since the 1960s. The vehicle featured 5.9 liters, and with this could achieve 100km/h in just under 6.5 seconds. The Bristol Blenheim weighed 1,728kg and achieved a top speed of 250km/h.
