Footnotes

  • "The brief to the design team at Lister was simple: to design and build the fastest, most powerful and most luxurious production Lister ever made. The Lister LFT-666 answers and exceeds this brief in every respect." - Tiff Needell, Lister racing driver and television presenter.

    The car offered here is indeed the fastest, most powerful and most luxurious production model that the Lister Motor Company has ever made. In October 1956, Sir William Lyons announced that the Jaguar works racing effort would cease for the 1957 season citing the "heavy burden on the Technical and Research Branch of the Engineering Division". Shell-Mex BP, sponsors of both Jaguar and Lister, were keen for representation to continue and so was Jaguar. A cost-effective way of accomplishing this was for a Jaguar engine to be fitted to a different chassis.

    Brian Lister, the owner of Brian Lister (Light Engineering) Ltd, was initially reluctant but Jaguar agreed, via Shell-Mex BP, to supply a Jaguar engine and transmission to be fitted into a Lister chassis with full factory support. The new car was entered for the 1957 season as a Lister-Jaguar and Lister's 60-year dedication to the Jaguar marque began.

    Thirty years later, in 1987, under the new ownership of Laurence Pearce, development began of a tuned Jaguar XJS V12, which would become known as the Lister Le Mans. In total, 90 cars were completed and the project was deemed a great success. In the 1990s Lister went on to enjoy enormous success with the Jaguar V12-powered Lister Storm GT racer, winning the British Empire Trophy for a record fourth time, and in 2000, winning the FIA GT Championship. Lister's place as one of the leading Jaguar tuning companies was sealed.

    In 2013 Lister was bought by Andrew and Lawrence Whittaker, who launched 10 continuation Lister Knobbly's to celebrate 60 years since Lister's inception. They followed this up with the Lister Stirling Moss - the only racing car to ever be officially endorsed by the great man. More recently, Lister Cars brought out the mighty Lister LFT-666 Coupé and LFT-C Roadster. Both cars are based on the superb Jaguar F-Type and feature a tuned version of the already potent Jaguar 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine, which now produces a devilish 666bhp courtesy of upgraded dual supercharger pulleys; custom inter-coolers, performance air filtration; and Lister engine management. Bespoke carbon fibre bodywork; Napa leather interior; fully adjustable suspension and full Lister custom exhaust upgrade; and Lister 21" forged alloy wheels shod with Michelin Supersoft XL tyres complete the package. Performance figures of 0-60mph in 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 208mph were claimed.

    Only 99 Coupés were scheduled for production and only 10 LFT-C Roadsters, with all owners entering the exclusive Lister Drivers' Club. This particular car is finished in black with yellow racing circles and stripe, while the interior is trimmed in matching black/yellow Napa leather. This stunning British supercar has covered only some 2,000 miles from new and is described by the vendor as in excellent condition throughout. With the production run now fully sold out, it represents a unique opportunity to buy number '1' of 10 Lister LFT-Cs and the company's demonstrator/press car, which has featured widely in global press articles. The remainder of five years manufacturer's warranty is included.
