Classic Car Photography has long been a Bolwell fan, and has followed the development of the Bolwell Nagari Mk X with great interest. We have spent a lot of time with Campbell Bolwell and other members of the Bolwell team who have been involved in the design and development of the latest Bolwell sports car. We spent a fair amount of time at the Bolwell Car Company factory and we were at the official launch of the new Nagari prototype at the 2008 Melbourne International Motorshow.
Since then, the prototype has been developed into a true Australian super car and has gained all the necessary ADR approvals. The first 5 next generation Nagaris are now to be offered for sale, and The Healey Factory is currently advertising Bolwell Nagari Mk X No 002.
Here’s a summary of what The Healey Factory has to say about this car:
With 40 years since the Original Bolwell Nagari Mk8, that stirred up the Super-car world and proved that Australians can build a genuine fast exotic car, Bolwell has done it again with the Nagari Mk X.
This Bolwell Nagari represents a very rare opportunity to get your hands on one of these very limited cars (1 of 5). We believe this to be the first next generation Nagari up for open sale in Australia.
Driving this car is a real treat and a car of two halves. With plenty of power, precise steering and a great feel from the suspension and brakes it feels great to drive fast. It is also very easy to drive at normal speeds and in busy traffic and can behave as a lovely docile daily driver.
With a different layout from the original front engined V8, this New car has a mid-mounted 3.5L DOHC V6 VVTI with a Six speed paddle shift gearbox that can be used in both Automatic and in Manual mode.
Build with a high strength carbon fibre occupant capsule, carbon fibre glass kevlar composites it make for a very light weight and strong body.
The engine produces 220kw and with the car weighing in at 990kg the power to weight ratio is wonderful and provides for a very spirited drive if you so desire.
Suspension in this Aussie icon is fully independent double wishbone with coil overs & fully adjustable dampers for great tune-ability. This gives a firm but forgiving ride that will impress you in all driving conditions.
Stopping this Super-car is taken care of by 355mm Ventilated discs with 6 piston callipers up front, and 355mm ventilated discs at the rear. All controlled by an ABS system.
To grip the road the Bolwell has 19×8” wheels with 235/35 Dunlop Sportsmaxx ZR19 up front & 19×9.5” wheels with 275/35 Dunlop Sportsmaxx ZR19 at the rear.
As standard the car comes with Air conditioning, Electric windows, Polaris stereo with GPS-DVD, rear camera & Cruise control.
Trimmed beautifully with Fully adjustable Recaro sportster CS seats, a Momo Millenium Evo steering wheel, all in beautiful black leather.
Some of the creature comforts include a 300 litre boot, side door pockets, a centre console with cup holders and a glove box.
