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, while 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, following an agreement, first with BLE Automotive and then WP Automotive, saw converted XJ-S models marketed as Lister-Jaguars.

    Conceived as a comfortable and long-legged Grande Routière, rather than an out-and-out sports car like the preceding E-Type, the XJ-S made use of the Jaguar XJ6/XJ12 saloon platform and running gear. Shorter in the wheelbase than its saloon siblings, the XJ-S debuted as a V12-powered coupé, with six-cylinder and soft-top versions following in the 1980s. The car's 150mph performance was not achieved without penalty however, its prodigious thirst causing sales to nosedive as oil prices soared. However, the arrival of the HE (High Efficiency) V12 in 1981 and the introduction of the smaller six enabled it to weather the storm. The introduction of the six-cylinder model in 1983 coincided with that of the Targa-style Cabriolet - the first open Jaguar since the E-Type's discontinuation - but it was not until 1988 that a full convertible became available. Lister's developments of the XJ-S included a 6.0-litre engine and twin-supercharger induction, and by 1995 a 'full house' Mark III conversion cost a staggering £53,505+VAT, on top of the price of the donor vehicle!

    This stunning XJ-S V12 Convertible boasts the full Lister body kit, interior, suspension, wheels, racing brakes and tuned 5.3-litre engine. 'F363 UPC' has covered only 68,000 miles from new and comes with expired MoT certificates and plentiful service history, including bills totalling over £1,000 for a top-end overhaul and air conditioning repair. Described as in generally good condition, this rare Lister-modified XJ-S comes with MoT to October 2016 and a V5C registration document. Finished in red with matching carpets and red-piped cream leather interior, it represents an exciting opportunity to acquire an exciting car possessing an exceptional specification, as well as a direct link with one of the greatest of Jaguar exponents.
