Your own Lister Storm for 135k

For a while, this racer was the fastest four-seater car in the world - and now it can be yours

An exceptionally powerful racing car with a fine competitive pedigree has emergedin the classic automobiles market.

The Lister Storm was originally built by Lister Cars in 1993.

It was fitted with, at the time, the biggest engine to be used in a road car since World War Two.

Under the Lister Storm's bonnet is a seven litre 6996cc engine, based on the power unit originally used in the Jaguar XJR sports cars which appeared at Le Mans during the 1980s.

The Storm was first entered at Le Mans in 1995,in the GT1 Class. There it faced powerful and renowned competitors including the McLaren F1, Ferrari F40, Porsche 911 GT2 and the Jaguar XJ220.
