Why does the nose/grill look like a BMW?

It's a Bristol 401 (and yes, the nose very much looks like a BMW).

Because the Bristol 401 was the successor to a postwar Bristol model made from a hodgepodge of pre-war BMW components, including the body from a BMW 327.

Why they kept the BMW "kidney grille" is beyond me, but a war prize is a war prize. I don't think they ever thought BMW would make cars again, which almost happened.

Interesting stuff. If you want to make it even more interesting, look up what happened to the BMW factories which found themselves in the eastern sector in 1945: EMW, IFA, Wartburg etc.

There's a good description of a Bristol 401 here.

Yes I am aware of Bristol, but I thought it was an Alfa Romeo. Heck other than the grill it is a direct copy~!~!
