Bristol is back and better than ever.

Bristol is an under-the-radar British automotive manufacturer with a stylish heritage that recently changed course when new owners bought the company out of bankruptcy a few years back.

Their first big post-relaunch project is the ultra-clean Bristol Bullet, an appropriately named roadster with an old school design and new school speed.

Top Gear reports it's packing a BMW-sourced V8 engine that hits 62 miles per hour in just 3.8 seconds with a 155 miles per hour top speed.

They're also giving buyers the choice of a six-speed manual or automatic, something we're seeing less and less of today.

The interior is ultra-clean, with all the contemporary features one could really need while still maintaining a distinctly vintage-inspired aesthetic. 

Production will begin early in 2017, with only 70 expected to be manufactured. Apparently, a "significant number" have already been ordered, so act quick if you want to be in this club. It will set you back around $325,000.
