Lister is one of the most renowned names in sports car racing history and the Lister-Jaguar, designed by Brian Lister, swept almost all before it during its first full racing season in 1957. The relationship between Lister and Jaguar goes back almost 50 years. Synonymous with racing and legendary names like Stirling Moss who scored victories behind the wheel of Lister-Jaguars, often demolishing Aston Martins in the process, the Lister Moniker became a household name around the world.
From the early 1980’s the name has also graced some of the world's fastest road cars and in 1989, with the culmination of six years of development work, the Lister Le Mans arrived on the supercar scene. Christened 'Le Mans' to celebrate Jaguar's success there in the late 80's, the Lister totally transformed its Jaguar XJS base into a mega powerful 200mph supercar. The bored out seven litre Jaguar engine produced a mighty 503 bhp ensuring effortless acceleration in any gear.
The basic XJS body was extensively modified with large alloy wheels, restyled rear buttresses and a plethora of ground hugging skirts, spoilers and superb Lister Recaro leather interior. For those who felt the standard V12 Jaguar engine a bit insipid, Lister added a comprehensive tuning package. The fuel injection was modified with four additional injectors and throttle bodies. The engine management system was tweaked, the heads gas flowed with larger valves fitted and to take the power the crankshaft was nitrided; whilst Cosworth conrods carried special forged pistons. New bearings and a modified oil system were also deemed necessary in order to reliably deliver the 503 bhp that it could now produce. Clearly the suspension and braking were going to need some attention; and this they duly received.The Lister-Jaguar capable of a 0-100km/h sprint time of just 4.5 seconds, better than the Ferrari Testarossa and the Lamborghini Countach.
A unique opportunity to purchase a one off Supercar that is superbly engineered, mind-blowingly fast, this Lister Le Mans is something incredibly special. Lister Jaguar XJS’s are very rare with only 20 units manufactured by the Leatherhead based Company; to own a significant part of Jaguar's extraordinary history is an opportunity not to be missed.

THIS MOTOR CAR:
From the early 1980s the legendary Lister name has graced some of the world's fastest road cars. Following six years of development, the Lister Le Mans burst onto the supercar scene in 1989. This was no mere makeover of the XJ-S but rather a thorough re-engineering, the only parts left unaltered being the doors, windscreen glass, front suspension uprights and wishbones, and the alternator! Named in honour of Jaguar's successes at La Sarthe in the 1980s, the four-seater Le Mans featured a 7.0-litre version of Jaguar's V12 engine, comprehensively reworked and upgraded to cope with its now 503 bhp maximum power output. A similar torque figure ensured stupendous acceleration in any gear. Needless to say, the suspension, brakes, wheels, and tyres were up-rated, while a purposeful-looking body kit ensured that the car remained stable at its 200mph maximum speed.
Originally delivered by Lister in July 1991 in the UK. Left Uk in 2010 and officially registered in Hong Kong in 2012, now showing "2 Hands" on Hong Kong VRD.
