1984 BRISTOL BEAUFORT, Drop-Head Coupe, 5899cc, Chrysler 360 V8 Engine.

The stylish and elegant Beaufort, modelled along the lines of the Bristol 412 and Bristol Beaufighter, (both designed by Carrozzeria Zagato of Milan, Italy) was an effort by Bristol to crack the lucrative American market. Although it is easy to imagine the car rolling along the highways of California; USA legislation with regard to the height of the seat-belt mounting, sounded the death knell for the project. Despite it being made during the age of so-called conspicuous consumption, just this one Beaufort made it onto the road. Built as a touring car it has long-range fuel tanks. According to Bristol’s own publicity, the Beaufort Drop-head Coupe has a top speed of around 150mph (240km/h) with ‘slingshot acceleration’. In the view of the company, the car offers ‘exhilarating open-air motoring’ but could also be ‘as quiet and unfussy as any limousine’ in an urban environment.
