In comparison with the 403, model 404 and 405 were improved transmission. Front disc brakes became an option, but the most of the early models, and were installed on almost all the 405 cabriolet.

Externally, a notable feature of the Bristol 404 and 405 was the refusal of the radiator grille in the style of the BMW. Now he has become much more similar to the design of aircraft engines. In these models Bristol presented for the first time the function of storage for spare wheels in the front wing.
