    Bristol Cars goes into administration - the end of British vehicle production? - Business News - Manufacturing Digital

    The last wholly-owned British car manufacturer Bristol, who specialised in hand-built luxury vehicles, has entered administration.

    We saw one of those at the weekend, in a rather fetching green colour.

    Bristol didn't help themselves by being over selective on who they would sell their cars to.

    Personally I'd like one of these please...

    Still it's rather telling that some of you don't recognise quality when you see it.

    Quite, and they do hold their value pretty well Bristol Cars Ltd - Used Cars

    You can pick up an 8/9 year old second hand fighter for a mere £128,000.

    Who did they sell 'em to, people with bad taste?

    Frankly I'd be more concerned about viable British cars such as Land Rover, Jaguar, Aston Martin not owned by locals.
