Home / Automotive / Cars / Video: Lister Thunder Is A Bespoke 666bhp Jaguar F-type


Next month, Lister, Britain's oldest racing car company, plans to reveal what it says is an all-new model based on Jaguar's F-Type at the Historic Motorsport International expo in London.

The bespoke F-Type is being christened the Lister Thunder and is being dunned the ‘logical successor’ to the 1990s Lister Le Mans – which was also a Jaguar-based supercar.

Lister reckons that, with some bespoke design tweaks and performance gains, the Thunder is the most powerful and luxurious car they've ever produced.

The Jaguar’s 5.0-litre supercharged V8 now squeezes out 666bhp and Lister claims 0-62mph in just over three seconds, topping out in excess of 200mph.

Most of the visual changes happen up front, with a carbon fibre front apron and extended front splitter, bright green accents around the grille and different vents on the bonnet. At the back, you'll find a carbon fibre bumper and exhaust tips.

Hop inside and you're greeted by Bridge of Weir Nappa leather upholstery and you can choose from 36 different colours – which is a lot.

Jaguar logos inside and out are replaced by Lister motifs.

Limited to just 99 examples, the Thunder will be priced from £139,950.

Watch Tiff Needell introduce the Lister Thunder and tell us more about it in the video below.
