With run-flat tires and space-saver spares for the extra trunk space (and cost savings), one can really appreciate that starting from 1953, a car maker came up with a solution which gave customers a full-sized spare without wasting luggage space.
I'm sure hardcore Bristol fanboys already knew this, but let the rest have some fun! The British luxury car maker introduced the front wing-mounted spare wheel and battery with the 404 in the fifties, and kept building its car like this until the Bristol Blenheim 3G of 2002.
- Splendid, Jeeves!
- Thank you, Sir!
