2020 Lister Knobbly Concept Car

Lister, the British carmaker, has a long history in the racing world. In fact, it’s been said that their 1950s-era Jaguar-powered Knobbly Race Car is the most successful vehicle of its day. It looks like Lister is ready to revisit that legendary car with a new version to emerge in 2020.

While there are a lot of clear nods to the original vehicle — the topless cockpit, a low and wide stance, humped wheel arches, side-mounted exhausts, and more — it looks like this all-new version is set to be a different beast entirely. In fact, a quick glance at the concept renderings hint at things like advanced aerodynamics, up-to-date materials (like carbon fiber around the base and clearly-modern wheels), and — if that gargantuan whale mouth of a grille is to be believed — a much more powerful high-horsepower engine. Unfortunately, Lister has yet to confirm any details, so those who are foaming at the mouth will just have to wait until they do.
