One of Australia's sports car legends will be re-born in February when the all-new Bolwell Nagari is revealed at the Melbourne International 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 up front in a steel backbone chassis clad in fibreglass.
Fifty years ago Campbell Bolwell began designing and building sports cars, and today he has created a true successor to his original Nagari, with unique styling, low volume exclusivity and high quality workmanship.
Performance targets 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.
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.
