I agree that it is possible if they retain the chassis. However I read somewhere that the next generation of Bristols will use Mercedes drivetrains which may indicate all the electronics that go with said package including ABS etc. I'm not sure that the tiny market for bespoke four seaters would accommodate a new car without features such as ABS.

Bristol have made some 50 Fighters and about the same number of Blenheims in the 14 years it has been in production. I hope that Bristol do make a replacement for the Blenheim but it would have to sell in relatively large numbers (in Bristol terms) and although Bristol cap their production to 150 cars a year the last time they made anywhere near that number was back in the sixties.
