Lister is the UK’s oldest continuously operating race car company, originally founded in 1951. The firm’s connection to the Jaguar brand dates back to 1957, when Lister was tasked with dropping an XK engine in one of its rides. And today, Lister continues this tradition of thoroughly upgrading existing Jaguars, the latest of which is the F-PACE-based Lister Stealth.
The Jag’s forced induction 5.0L V8’s been gifted bespoke intercoolers and supercharger pulleys, and a stainless steel exhaust with carbon tips that results in a 195mph top speed and an output of 660hp and 720ft-lbs of torque — a 22% bump over the stocker. Equipped with an adjustable lowered suspension kit, the Stealth also rides on a set of 23” wheels designed by the UK-based tuning outfit and manufactured by Vossen. Throughout its development, the Stealth represented the world’s most powerful SUV, though, with the release of Dodge’s Durango Hellcat, the Lister’s been relegated to “Britain’s Most Powerful SUV.” Exterior upgrades include a front bumper, side skirts, wheel arch extensions, and diffusers, all handmade from carbon fiber in the UK, while the interior sports Napa Leather seats available in 36 color choices and a whopping 90 stitching options. Limited to 100 units, the Lister Stealth SUV starts from $145,150.
