The Bristol 411 was first launched in 1969 with a 6.3 Chrysler V8 engine, which produced 335 BHP. A contemporary account by John Bolster describes the 411 as the “fastest true four-seater touring car” of its time, beating its closest rival, the 6.3 litre Mercedes-Benz 300SEL, at maximum speed and acceleration.
Exceptional both mechanically and cosmetically, our restored 411's benefit from a range of upgrades and are truly unique vehicles.
Mechanically, our 411 restorations are thoroughly, yet sympathetically upgraded. The 6.6 litre Chrysler V8 breathes using an Edelbrock performance carburettor, and uses electronic ignition. An uprated aluminium radiator and oil cooler, alongside an uprated alternator and high-torque starter motor ensure reliability for fast road use in modern traffic. A bespoke handling pack was developed by Bristol Cars engineers for this car, to ensure sure footed yet rewarding handling. Our restoration package includes uprated springs, dampers and anti-roll bars to the front, with upgraded dampers and a wider track to the rear. Additionally, our restored 411’s benefit from a performance AP racing brake conversion for ultimate stopping power - visible inside the subtle Bristol snowflake alloy wheels.
Retaining its period features with modern convenience, our interiors receive a total re-trim. The suede headlining and a hand stitched leather dashboard compliment new carpeting and upgraded woodwork. A Becker Mexico with satellite navigation and high quality speakers complete the interior.
