When the second world war ended, the need for military aircraft in Europe decreased significantly. Bristol Aeroplane Company, BAC was one of the aircraft makers that, just like Saab started making cars. Bristol went for producing GT cars, 'gentlemens' expresses' for fast, intercontinental journeys, and they would stick with this type of car for the rest of the century.

The first model, the Bristol 400, was largely built on pre-war BMW constructions. Its front even looked like copies of BMW cars of the time.

During the 50s, 60s and 70s Bristol stuck to making GT cars with two doors and four seats. In 1961 the old BMW-derived 2 litre straight six was replaced with V8 engines from Chrysler.

In the beginning of the 2000s, the new Fighter model was released. Being more of a super car than at grand tourer with its Dodge Viper V10 engine, only 13 cars are believed to have been made.

Bristol has, despite never having had any other resellers than a single showroom at 368-370 Kensington High Street i London, a very dedicated clientele.
