Bristol 412 Convertible

Introduced in 1975, the 412 was notable as Bristol’s first convertible model since the 1950s. Styled by (and initially crafted by) Carrozzeria Zagato of Milan, its conspicuously angular two-door bodywork featured a pronounced central rollover bar. With a detachable targa panel up front and folding rear section, the two-part roof proved both practical and versatile.
Hand-built to special order, the 2+2 convertible remained in production until 1982 by which time less than 100 are thought to have been sold. This specific car was acquired by the Museum through auction in Great Britain.
