Bristol was in a very bad financial status in 2010 after the world financial crisis, and its management came up with an excellent idea that was meant to fill-up the company's bank accounts, but it didn't work.

Once a proud aircraft manufacturer, Bristol struggled to survive in an era where its cars were no longer hot on the market. Moreover, despite their hand-made craftsmanship, their mechanical qualities were not as expected. Also, worth noting that after the Euro 5 emission standards implementation, the British automaker had trouble adapting. But then, someone had the brilliant idea to refresh older models. Thus, older cars could have been reworked and didn't have to comply with new safety and emission requirements.

The 411 was one of the best options for this kind of refurbishment. Thus, the old three-box, the two-door sedan could live a new life. On the outside, there were few things to prove that it was a new vehicle in old clothing. It still sported the four round headlights but with a chromed grille in the middle instead of black. Instead of clear-lense blinkers on the front fenders, the Series 6 sported amber ones.

Inside, the automaker kept the wood trims on the dashboard of the 6 Series but refinished it with high-quality lacquer. In addition, customers were spoiled with new leather upholstery but placed on the same flat bucket seats. Also, the steering wheel was replaced with a newer, much-modern looking one.

Under the hood, Bristol installed a fuel-injected 5.9-liter V8 carried over from Chrysler. It was paired with a four-speed automatic gearbox that sent the torque to the rear wheels.
