1952 Bristol 401 presented in Bristol Red (Maroon) tastefully paired with Beige leather upholstery.


The Bristol 401 was initially released in Autumn 1949, it was distinguished by its ultra-smooth, aerodynamic exterior. The Bristol 401 was the first Bristol to wear Bristol’s signature complete aluminium body with Superleggera framework.

“Powered by an engine basically similar to that which has brought major honours to four types of Bristol Formula 2 racing cars”

This specific example was first registered 11th November 1952. Over years the car has amassed quite the history file.

The late current owner purchased UMG 898 from the Bristol Owners Club newsletter in 2008 and began to enjoy the car right away appearing at many classic cars shows in the South East where the car lived over the last 15 years.


Spencer Lane-Jones Ltd have taken care of a large amount of repairs and maintenance dating back to 2000.
