Known History

Left Hand DriveLister StormBuilt by Lister Cars at the beginning of 1993, the Lister Storm used the biggest engine fitted to a production road car since the war. Its 7 litre 6996cc power unit was based on the one used by the Jaguar XJR Sportscars used at Le Mans in the 1980's, famously triumphant in its iconic Silk Cut livery. For a while, the Lister Storm was the fastest four seater car in the world, the title now held by the CLS-based Brabus Rocket

Lister entered a Storm at Le Mans for the first time in 1995 as a competitor in the GT1 Class. It would be up against cars such as the McLaren F1, Ferrari F40, Jaguar XJ220 and Porsche 911 GT2.

This original Lister Storm #053108 prepared in 1998 and began its race history in the 1999 FIA GT and British GT championships racing that year at Brands, Snetterton, Silverstone, Monza, Hockenheim, Donnington and Zolder. During 1999, it would win at Snetterton and Brands Hatch. In the FIA GT Championship, its best result was its second at Donnington Park, which would be the first international podium result for a modern day Lister.

2000 saw the car continue competing in both the British and the Spanish GT Championships were it took 2 victories; both coming at Estoril. In the 2000 British GT Championship it won at Brands Hatch, driven by William Hewland and Paul Evans.

The car was sold off in 2002 to a private collector who raced the car twice at Mille Miglia Interlagos in 2003 and 2004. From 2004 the car has only seen use on the owners private race track.

This is the only LHD car and also has an upgraded to the gearbox to use F1 style paddle changes.
