An ultra-rare 1994 Lister Storm, boasting seven litres of pure and unadulterated muscle, headlines the Historics auction at Brooklands Museum in Surrey on Saturday, May 19.
One of only three remaining road-going models thought to exist from the original four produced by the company, the Storm comes to sale as one of a three car Lister collection included in a deceased estate.
Lister Storm cost a cool £220,000 new
When built, the V12 Jaguar-powered Lister Storm was the fastest road-going car in the world. It topped out at a thundering 211mph, and it came at a price to make the eyes water, a cool £220,000.
Beneath its sweeping bodywork is an aluminium monocoque, with lightweight carbon kevlar boosting the performance of this stupendous six-speed manual transmission car.
With unmarked metallic green bodywork and a green/tan leather interior, it has covered just 30,000 miles in its 24 years.
“A very rare purchase opportunity, a tremendous drive and great investment potential. With an estimate of up to £165,000,” Brooklands sale notes predict.
Looking at the original price of this Lister Storm many will consider it something of a steal.
However, the other two Listers offered for sale from the same owner are equally spectacular.
1990 Lister Jaguar XJS Coupe could fetch £80,000
Firstly, a 1990 Lister Jaguar XJS Coupe – one of only 20 manufactured – has covered just 3,354 miles from new, with 604bhp under foot courtesy of Lister’s much worked-on Jaguar V12 powerplant paired with a five-speed manual gearbox.
The speed machine clocks the 0-6 sprint in 3.6 seconds and hits the ton in 10.8sec. Immaculate throughout, it’s presale estimate is £70,000–£80,000.
1993 Lister Jaguar XJ12 valued at £70,000
Completing the tasty trio is a comparatively sedate 1993 Lister Jaguar XJ12 although the 18″ wheels with Brembo brakes peeking through, give hint to this being somewhat removed from the standard Jaguar XJ12.
In fact it’s some £70,000 worth of difference courtesy of Lister’s makeover.
Almost £30,000 of this is accounted for by the uprated twin-turbocharged V12 engine, and £10,000 on the bespoke interior and exterior – jet black coachwork complemented by cream Connolly hide within.
Immaculate and with just 14,000 miles on the clock its estimate runs at £30,000-£40,000.
