Bolwell Nagari Image Released, Looks Like Every Other Lightweight Sports Car

Despite its Japanese-sounding name, the Nagari is the work of the Australian Bolwell Car Company. The company has a history of building small quantities of sports cars going back to the 1970's and is hoping to recreate the magic with this new Bolwell Nagari. In addition to the borrows-from-here, borrows-from-there looks, the mid-engined sports car should be powered by a supercharged version of Toyota's 2GR-FE 3.5-litre V6. More details and early pics below the jump.

New Negari Image Released

Bolwell Car Company has revealed the fully finished beauty of its new Nagari sports car.

A single frontal image reveals sleek, low-slung lines with generous glass areas and classic mid-engined sports car styling.

The faired-in, four-headlight front end echoes the legendary McLaren F1, while other elements capture the spirit of the best Italian mid-engined exotics.

As intended by its creator Campbell Bolwell, the styling also pays homage to the original Nagari of the 1970s, particularly in the rising, curvaceous hip line and the tunnel-back rear window.

Bolwell will give the public its first look at the complete car when the Motor Show opens its doors next week at 5pm on Friday 29 February.

Melbourne International Motor Show is organised and promoted by the Victorian Automobile Chamber of Commerce through its dealer division the Australian Automobile Dealers Association (Vic).
