Footnotes

  • One of the most illustrious names in sports car racing history, the Lister-Jaguar, designed by Brian Lister, swept almost all before it during its first full racing season in 1957, and in recent years cars bearing the Lister name have been a major force in GT racing worldwide. From the early 1980s the name has also graced some of the world's fastest road cars, after an agreement first with BLE Automotive and then WP Automotive saw highly modified XJ-S models marketed as Lister-Jaguars.

    This Lister Jaguar is the first of only five that were manufactured in 1990 using brand new XJ-S Convertibles as the basis. The car is powered by a Lister-converted 7.0-litre V12 engine equipped with twin Albrecht mechanically driven superchargers. Its stupendous power – 604bhp – is transmitted via a Ferrari clutch and a five-speed manual transmission to oversize (335x30x18) Goodyear F1 tyres. Almost certainly the most powerful British passenger car at the time of its construction, the Lister cost a staggering £167,000 when new, getting on for five times the price of the donor XJ-S!

    'H969 GGM' has featured in various motoring journals including Autocar and Jaguar Quarterly while the Lister's 200mph top speed also earned it a place in the Guinness Book of Records. The car spent the first five-or-so years of its life with the first private owner, during which period the engine was changed, and then in January 1996 returned to Lister, whose proprietor Laurence Pearce used it as his own for a while. The next listed owners are David Stewart of Wimblington, Cambrdgeshire, during whose ownership the car was featured in Jaguar Driver (July 2000 edition) and Hans Glaser of Fiddington, Gloucestershire, who acquired it in May 2002. The current (sixth) owner acquired the Lister in December 2008.

    Re-sprayed last year, the Lister is finished in blue with blue-piped cream Connolly hide interior, the latter featuring Recaro seating and '200mph' speedometer. This rare British supercar is offered with old-style logbook, service booklet, DVLA owners list, sundry invoices, some expired MoT certificates, Swansea V5C document and current MoT. Currently displaying a total of only 23,961 miles on the odometer, 'H969 GGM' represents an exciting opportunity to acquire a unique car possessing an exceptional specification and some very special features, as well as a direct link with one of the greatest of Jaguar exponents.
