Lister Motor Corporation has unveiled its most up-to-date development, based on the Jaguar F-Kind.
Dubbed the Thunder, it is driven by a 5.-litre supercharged V8 making 666hp (497kW). No, which is not an accident and certainly, it is the variety of the beast.
The motor is dependent on the standard supercharged F-Variety V8, but Lister has fitted upgraded supercharger pulleys, customized intercoolers, a improved air filtration method and a exclusive engine management method.
Together with that devilish electric power output, the modifications produce 976Nm of torque. Which is 276Nm more than the manufacturing facility F-Sort SVR would make, and helps shoot the Thunder to 60mph (-97km/h) in just 3.2 seconds, on the way to a 335km/h best speed.
Styling alterations are led by the prolonged splitter, new bonnet vents and reworked grille at the entrance, even though the rear stop now wears a exclusive bumper and unwanted fat carbon-fibre exhaust tips. Provided the name, anything fewer than a thunderous exhaust observe will be a disappointment.
The exterior is completed in typical Lister environmentally friendly-and-yellow, entire with decals and brake callipers to match.
Modifications proceed behind the wheel, exactly where the seats and dash are trimmed in Bridge of Weir leather with 36 distinctive colour possibilities. Lister badges have been stitched into the headrests, although the sample of the stitching matches the grille. Talking of stitching, the inside colour scheme can be established to match the glance of the exterior if you drive.
Past the (remarkable) efficiency figures, Lister isn’t revealing facts about the Thunder’s chassis tune – that’ll have to hold out until finally the whole reveal in London.
“Like Brabus and AMG with Mercedes and Alpina with BMW, we are hoping to develop into synonymous after again with tuning Jaguar motor vehicles, supplying buyers new enhanced, bespoke performance and layout alternatives to Jaguar’s acclaimed model programme,” claimed Lawrence Whittaker, Lister CEO. We’d be fascinated to hear what Jaguar Land Rover has to say about that, presented its investment decision in SVO.
“Although we are not straight affiliated with Jaguar Land Rover, Lister has a Jaguar tuning heritage relationship again 65 years. Our new Lister Thunder is the speediest and most strong Lister ever established with a 208mph major pace and -100[mph] time of just 6.8 seconds. I am totally happy of what we have obtained, and the Thunder is just the beginning!”
Just 99 illustrations of the Thunder will be designed, with price ranges starting £139,950 ($247,000). Lister will also offer you a carbon-fibre bodykit for present F-Variety homeowners, priced from £19,950 ($35,200).
