Bristol Cars Find New Owner
"Bristol Cars is a British institution and an important part of our national motoring heritage. Over the next few months we will start to reveal the details of our plans to combine Bristol Cars' tradition and iconic marque with Frazer-Nash's pioneering technology to showcase our cutting-edge electric and range-extended powertrains,” explains William Chia, director of operations at Swiss company Kamport.
The connection between Fraser-Nash and Bristol Cars dates back to the foundation of the latter in 1946. However, Bristol Cars could turn green in the near future as Frazer-Nash Research Limited is a Surrey-based research and development company specialising in hybrid and electric powertrains.
"British engineers are globally recognised for their inventions and the quality of their innovation – and these attributes are inherent in all our systems and products. Mindful of Bristol Cars' rich heritage and our responsibility as custodians of the brand, we are certain that our technology will blend seamlessly and successfully with the Bristol Cars tradition of engineering integrity. Owners and enthusiasts of the cars should be assured that, even though these are early days in our tenure of the brand, we are committed to providing them and their cars with the highest levels of quality, technology and service," the Kamkorp director reassures us.
