Bolwell Nagari Launch For Melbourne

 

 

6th December, 2007

One of Australia's classic sports car will be revived in February when the all-new Bolwell Nagari is revealed at the Melbourne Motor Show.

The new Nagari is the dream car of Campbell Bolwell, who built the original Nagari in the 1970s in collaboration with his brother Graeme.

Like its namesake, the new Nagari embodies the latest and best of high-performance sports car technology, which has moved on immensely in three decades.

The new Nagari is a mid-engined carbon fibre composite monocoque coupe powered by a quad-cam, supercharged, 3.5 litre V6, whereas the original Nagari carried its 5 litre V8 upfront in a steel backbone chassis clad in fibreglass.

Fifty years ago Campbell Bolwell began designing and building sports cars, and today he has developed a true successor to his original Nagari (see image below), with unique styling, low volume exclusivity and high quality workmanship.

Performance targets for the new car include a 0-100 km/h time of 4 seconds, achieved through a classic combination of light weight - under 900 kg - and the power of a supercharged Toyota V6, generally similar to that developed by Toyota for the TRD Aurion (hopefully with all bugs 'ironed out').

All-wishbone suspension also draws on classic concepts of ultra-soft springing with lots of control for large suspension movement and fine handling.

The interior is roomy and sensible with good access and comfortable performance seating for a driver and passenger up to at least 195 cm (6'5") tall.

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