Like the concept and the outside, the dash arrangement not so much. Looks like a slab with an afterthought.

Are those little fins in back, slick!

"...it comes off as a counterfeit Volvo P1800"

Exactly what I thought when I first saw this thing, and that is not criticism.

Now, make a hard top version (esp. if it's a shooting brake or at least a counterfeit 1800ES) -- which probably won't happen -- and keep the price down to a reasonable level -- which definitely won't happen -- and I'd be interested.

Don't get excited they will not make it and if they do they will not sell it here in the states.

It won't come here, but I'm pretty sure they (Bristol Cars) will make it. Their cars are custom built to order.

If I want a hand built car it will be a Singer 911.
