We love the audacity of the Bristols. "No, you can't test our cars. Yes, they're very expensive, allegedly shoddily built, and feature Chrysler powertrains. We will brag about the smoothness of our four-speed autobox, even though Chrysler forgot how to build a decent transmission after they developed the 727 Torqueflite. And despite the fact that the Bugatti Veyron is demonstrably faster than the its claimed top velocity, we're still going to go ahead and claim that our Fighter is possibly the fastest car in the world. Yes, we're 60 years old, and dementia's setting in fast."
