Lister Motor Company makes an unexpected comeback after an absence of almost 25 years. The company has already announced their intentions to resume production.
Bringing back to life the company was the result of a massive investment. The new Lister Motor Company is the result of Lister Storm, Brian Lister Light Engineering, George Lister Engineering and Warranty Wise joining forces. There are plans of recommencing production in 2015 within a highly innovative facility based in Cambridge. The head of the manufacturing project is Mark Hallam.
The question on everybody`s mind revolves around the car to be produced as the details are very limited. Lister Motor however informed that the vehicle will be very similar to the 1958 Lister Jaguar `Knobbly`. The new car is to be powered by Jaguar D Type motors mated with D Type transmissions designed by notorious experts (Crosthwaite & Gardener). Chris Kith Lucas from CKL Developments will be in charge with the track commissioning. Although the company has not been around for merely a quarter of a decade, they plan to come back in style and bring advanced technologies such as 3D scanning and CNC machining as well as CATIA design for the facility.
Lister informed that the auto will come with two different engines. The 4.6 liter GM V8 produces 315 bhp (235 kW) and a 290 lb-ft (393 Nm) peak torque. In this case the car reaches a maximum speed of 168 mph (270 Km/ h) and gets from 0-60 mph in 4.9 seconds. The second engine is the 3.8 liter Jaguar V8 which develops 330 bhp (246 kW) and 295 lb-ft (399 Nm) peak torque. Equipped with such an engine, the car reaches a top speed of 181 mph (291 Km/ h) and gets from 0 to 60 mph in 4.3 seconds.
