Built to outlast, even it’s owner. That is how Bristol Cars is being advertised. Perhaps, the brand is another of those luxury auto builders that have been dominating the car market for the affluent. But in its own right, Bristol Cars is totally of a different package.
Bristol Cars as a company was started in 1945. That time was post-war, and many labourers were back in the industry to work for their living. There was an excess flow of labour force, and there were still not too many companies that were operating. Thus, the company managed to help employ more people to work for its car assembly operations.
Because there was a glut in labour forces, Bristol Cars was quick to take advantage of the situation. The company strived and so much wanted to become unique and superior among all other luxury car brands. That is why it aimed to make its own cars hand-made. This said Bristol Cars has been tagged as the only hand-built premium cars introduced in the market.
The company boasts that each Bristol Car is made with utmost time and care. It is estimated that on the average, the process of assembling a Bristol Car is four times as prolonged as the process in manufacturing ordinary luxury cars. While most cars, both luxury and non-luxury, are built with the aid of machines, Bristol Cars are made entirely by the strength of human hands.
As for the style and external feature, Bristol Cars have been known to be obscure. Even if it is a luxury, the overall physical appearance of the brand is very bland and obscure compared to the beauty and elegance of other car brands. While some opinions say that Bristol Cars are simply ugly, some people find it more appealing that a car so obscure as the Bristol can become superior in terms of overall engine and car performance.
In fact, Bristol Cars are said to be engineers' cars rather than a creation by stylists. If you are into cars that are stylish and elegantly looking, Bristol Cars are not for you. But if you are looking for superior and very reliable car performance, then the car brand would just be the most perfect one to suit your requirements.
Another intriguing fact about Bristol Cars is that it is not heavily advertised. Thus, people would only hear about the brand when they are actually at the car dealers or if they are hearing or reading car reviews. Bristol Cars are made to be used on a daily basis rather than to be flaunted during glamorous occasions.
Aside from that, each Bristol Car is also made to be efficient. The space within the vehicle is designed in a way that it could accommodate more people and more baggage. People using and riding the Bristols would really feel the cosiness. Drivers would get the real feel of driving a high-end luxury car. Because Bristol Cars are hand-made, not too many of them are being manufactured. Thus, every Bristol Car is truly a great find.
