The Speedster, announced late in 2002, was developed from a much earlier body style reminiscent of the 405 Drophead, though in a 2 seat version without folding fabric hood. Now fitted with Blenheim Sports pack and running gear, brakes etc. This undisguised Sports Car is fitted with a low wrap-round screen and a tonneau cover – but no roof nor folding hood – is easily capable of more than 150mph. It was also known in the Factory as the “Bullet” in its early gestation circa 1955, after a prototype Bristol Aeroplane Co.Ltd. racing aeroplane destined not to go into production. More detail when available.
