Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, British automaker Bristol has been brought back to life by new owners, and is starting with this sublime and elegant 2-seater. It’s crafted from carbon fiber, weighs just 2400lb, and has a 4.8L BMW V8 that launches the car to 62 mph in just 3.8s.
The top-of-the-line TT gets a new aluminum 5-cylinder engine which pushes out 400 hp, launching the Coupe to 62mph in 3.7s and the Roadster in 3.9s. All-wheel drive and a fixed rear wing are standard, and adaptive dampers and carbon ceramic brakes are available.
The new TT looks and drives better than ever, with impressive grip and cornering, a zippy 220 hp turbo 4 with 258 lb-ft. of torque, and a luxuriously appointed interior. Its cool 12.3″ “virtual cockpit” combines an instrument panel, infotainment and navigation displays in one.
Motor Trend puts us behind the wheel of the ultimate Miata, a ride built to celebrate the little roadster’s 20th anniversary. This tiny beast has been upgraded with a supercharger, improved suspension, and grippy R-compound tires.
You’ll need an old 1987-1993 Mustang to the Mk4 Roadster kit car. Then, you’ll need about 200 hours of your spare time to convert your old pony car into this luscious classic Cobra replica.
