Lister Knobbly Sports Racer

May 5, 2017

60 year after it first raced as a competition car, Lister’s Knobbly Sports Racer is making a reappearance as a road legal vehicle.

Unlike most classic car replicas, every part of this vehicle – from the aluminum body panels to the engine – features an old-school bespoke build. Under the hood of the 1950’s racing stalwart is a Jaguar 6-cylinder 3.8-liter engine that drives 330 horses through a four speed gearbox – really similar to the old D-type engines of the mid-century. This powerplant is powerful enough to send the 1,735 pound vehicle racing up to 60 mph in just 4.3 seconds on its way to a top speed of 181 miles per hour. But the engine isn’t the only thing on this car worth mentioning. More than just retaining a powerful build, the Knobbly sports racer still features a beautiful aluminum body. Rather than opting for the easy way out, Lister spent over 500 hours hand beating these panels into their distinctive shape. Only ten of these will be made with releases planned to start in 2018.
