Are they S4 or S5 Aero chassis?
Look carefully at the chassis photo on the MMC web site.

Thats an S2,3,4 chassis in the image on MMC website- but it could just be a library image that they've used for the press release

Simon, I thought it was.
I also think that the cars supplied to Bristol were all S4 chassis.

The chassis from Bristol are here:

Filmed prior to auction. Not by me!

If you don't want the pre-amble start at 6 minutes 15 secs.

Love to know how they finally resolved the problem.


I'd love to know the fix for slow filling - it's the only negative of mine. It takes forever to fill. Seasons change whilst filling.

That's the site that Gordon Murray Designs has touted as its new HQ. Its the old BOC HQ in Windlesham.

(Armchair product manager hat on) I think the Bristol debacle is a missed opportunity for Morgan. They could have taken over the brand for new more modern bodies on top of their CX etc chassis! A Bristol Fighter on a modern Morgan chassis, BMW engines, ... more volume (probably at a different manufacturing site), more revenue stream (Bristol trad maintenance), ...

It does seem like a missed opportunity.

I recently watched a You Tube clip on the Connaught V10 Sports car from the early noughties. They only made one, but there are parts available to build a small number. The engine is a 2 Litre V10 and running on the bench it sounds glorious................................

Goodwoods take on the new/old/continuation Plus 8 with a different name..

They should stick a Dodge Viper engine in it with side pipes and call it a Bristol Dodger stirpot
