Frazer-Nash gives Bristol Cars death row pardon

Frazer-Nash gives Bristol Cars death row pardon

Last month we reported that British manufacturer Bristol Cars had entered administration and was on the verge of total extinction. Now, in a twist of fate Bristol has apparently been saved from administration by a Swiss company called Kamkorp Autokraft which is part of the Frazer-Nash empire.

Kamkorp Autokraft bought Bristol after it was forced to make 22 members of its 25 person staff redundant last month and now plans to merge Bristol in with its own vehicles. This means the Bristol tradition of making elegant vehicles will combine with the alternative-energy development Frazer-Nash has achieved in recent years. Expect to see a Bristol styled all-new electric sports car sometime in the future.

Bristol was originally an aircraft manufacturer, but converted to building bespoke vehicles for high class buyers in the UK shortly after World War II. The company hit financial major financial turbulance last month and entered administration. Strangely, sales and service have managed to continue through the whole ordeal, and will keep on going even with the new owners.

Frazer-Nash, has reassured Bristol fans and owners that his company is committed to continuing to service the brand’s cars.
