1959 Lister-Jaguar Sports Racer

Oct 26, 2018

Category: Rides

British race car driver Brian Lister began producing sports race cars in the mid-1950s initially using MG and Bristol engines. However, he transitioned to Jaguar and Chevrolet power, allowing the Lister-Jaguar to go toe-to-toe with speed freaks of the day such as the highly competitive Jaguar D-Types and Aston Martins.

This is the former Team Cunningham 1959 Lister-Jaguar Sports Racer driven by the legendary former Formula One race car driver Stirling Moss, considered one of the greatest drivers in history, and American race car driver Walt Hansgen. It gained fame by winning the SCCA C-Modified National Championship powered by its straight-six engine. Designed by Frank Costin during the golden years of post-war racing, this vehicle is considered to be one of the most original examples in the world. It will surely pull a hefty sum of money when it hits the auction block in January 2019.
