The Stealth is ’Britain’s Fastest SUV’

Jaguar F-Pace is a nice package overall and an all-rounded SUV. The most powerful trim in the lineup is the supercharged SVR which makes 550 horses and 502 pound-feet of torque. However, it is now trumped by an iteration made by another British company called Lister.

Lister has officially revealed the Stealth, an SUV based on the Jaguar F-Pace that makes 666 horses and 650 pound-feet of torque. The performance figures are also better than the F-Pace SVR’s, closely matching the newly-crowned world’s fastest SUV, the Dodge Durango Hellcat.

The Lister Stealth Is Quicker, Faster, and More Powerful than the Standard F-Pace SVR

The Lister Stealth is powered by the same engine that features in the F-Pace SVR – a 5.0-liter, supercharged V-8 mill.

In the Stealth, it makes 666 horses and 602 pound-feet of torque, which is a 22-percent increase over the standard SVR.

The SUV has drastically better acceleration than the standard SVR and takes just 3.6 seconds to hit the 60 mph mark from the standstill, while the top speed is rated at 195 mph. Thanks to these figures, the Stealth has now claimed the title of ‘Britain’s Fastest SUV’. The company also said that the Stealth recently beat the Lamborghini Urus, Aston Martin Vantage, and McLaren 570 GT in a drag race at the VMAX200 testing ground.

The Stealth’s power bump is not a simple tune-up.

Lister has equipped the Stealth with a custom‐built intercooler and high‐performance air filtration system to optimize the airflow into the engine. Even the upgraded dual supercharger pulleys help draw more air into the combustion chamber. Apart from this, a remap is also given to the engine, which the company prefers to call “Lister Engine Management System”.

What Different On The Outside?

Lister has made quite a few changes to the exterior as well. These aren’t merely aesthetic as they also help with the SUV’s aerodynamic performance. The carbon fiber front bumper features two large air intakes to aid airflow into the engine. The grille up front is surrounded with green inserts, thus breaking the overall monotony.

A front splitter on the bumper further increases the aerodynamic efficiency of the Stealth, making it handle much better at higher speeds and when pushed hard around the corners. This is complemented by another large carbon fiber rear diffuser that sits in the middle of the customized rear bumper.

To make sure the Stealth sounds even better, Lister has installed a customized stainless‐steel exhaust system with carbon fiber tips for those thunderous grunts. Apart from this, the car also features wider wheel arches and side skirts to further differentiate it from the standard F-Pace. The Stealth rides on 23‐inch Vossen forged wheels, which are said to be the only add-ons that are not made in the U.K. Lister has even updated the front and rear brakes to bring this beast back in control.

How Is It On The Inside?

On the inside, the Lister Stealth is wrapped in “highest‐grade Bridge of Weir Nappa leather” that is customized as per the customer’s taste. This isn’t just for upholstery; it covers the seatbelts, sport seats, dashboard, steering wheel, and roof lining. There are 36 colors and 90 stitching options to choose from. With the number of combinations that can be made, you can expect every single Stealth to be unique in its own way.

How Much Does The Lister Stealth Cost?

The Lister Stealth is priced at £109,950, which is approximately $145,400 as per the current exchange rates. To put things into perspective, the standard 2020 Jaguar F-Pace SVR starts at $80,600 in the States.

Final Thoughts

The Stealth is a better version of the F-Pace SVR in almost all the aspects. There are changes made to the interior and exterior, it has better aerodynamic efficiency. Production of the Lister Stealth is limited to just 100 examples. The Stealth could’ve been the world’s quickest SUV, but the Dodge Durango Hellcat beat it by announcing a 0-60 mph figure of 3.5 seconds. It still beats its Britain rival, the Bentley Bentayga, that makes 626 horses, takes 3.9 seconds to hit the 60 mph mark, and has a top speed of 190 mph.

Press Release:

We are proud to unveil the fastest and most powerful SUV Britain has ever produced – the Lister Stealth.

Based on the already dynamic Jaguar F‐PACE SVR, the 666bhp Stealth is the latest in our long line of stunning, hand‐crafted and bespoke products.

To claim the title of Britain’s fastest SUV, the Stealth required a thorough update to the 5.0‐litre supercharged V8 engine found in the factory F‐PACE SVR. Our team of highly experienced engineers set to work on the engine and cooling system to ensure it delivers an outstanding 666bhp and 881Nm of torque – a 22% increase over the standard car.

We began the process with a custom‐built intercooler and high‐performance air filtration system for optimising combustion temperatures and airflow into the unit. Upgraded dual supercharger pulleys have the cumulative effect of forcing more air into the combustion chamber for unrivalled levels of performance for this vehicle segment.

Like in the LFT‐666 and LFT‐C, the Lister Engineering Team have applied our proprietary Lister Engine Management System to the Stealth, modifying the programme mapping throughout the process to exploit the Stealth’s full capabilities. The result is a five‐seat SUV that can deliver a devilish 666bhp with ease.

The Stealth will accelerate with the same urgency as a modern supercar and keep on going to its top speed of 195mph. In a sprint from 0‐60mph, the Stealth takes a mere 3.6 seconds, making it not only the fastest accelerating SUV Britain has ever produced, but also the most powerful to date. The Stealth adds proof to its claim of being Britain’s fastest SUV after recently beating the Lamborghini Urus, Aston Martin Vantage and Mclaren 570 GT in a drag race at the renowned testing ground, VMAX200.

The Lister Stealth showcases its intent with a number of handmade bodywork enhancements that not only exude visual appeal but also contribute to the car’s aerodynamic performance and engine cooling. The redesigned carbon fibre front bumper features two large air intakes to aid airflow into the engine, while the front splitter increases aerodynamic efficiency at speed while adding to the Stealth’s dynamic handling. Uprated brakes, front and rear, ensure the Stealth stops as well as it accelerates.

A large carbon fibre rear diffuser sits in the middle of an exclusively sculpted rear bumper, creating additional downforce in tandem with the front splitter. We have also fitted a custom‐designed, stainless‐steel exhaust system complete with carbon fibre tips delivering gains in overall power output, giving the Stealth an unmistakable and thunderous soundtrack.

Completing the distinctive exterior look are matching side skirts and wider wheel arches to give the Stealth its purposeful stance. This is all complemented by bespoke, Lister‐designed 23‐inch Vossen forged wheels – the only element of the Stealth not made in the UK.

The Stealth features the highest‐grade Bridge of Weir Nappa leather interior that is tailored to every customer’s specification. Up to 36 individual colour choices are available with a further 90 different stitching options covering all aspects of the cabin from the seatbelts, sport seats, dashboard, steering wheel and roof lining. With this level of customisation available, each Lister will boast its own unique identity that’s truly personal to each owner.

As with every Lister model, exclusivity is guaranteed, with production limited to just 100 editions. Prices start from £109,950 for this ultimate expression of luxury, practicality and performance, with client consultation appointments available via our website.

Warrantywise, the UK’s best used car warranty, provides complete peace of mind for customers with an incredible and unprecedented seven‐year warranty for this class of performance luxury SUV.

Lawrence Whittaker, CEO of The Lister Motor Company, said: "Creating Britain’s fastest SUV is not without its challenges, but our in‐house design and development team have created a truly unique and world‐class product with the Lister Stealth. The launch of the Stealth continues our track record of creating bespoke, beautiful cars that major on performance, luxury and most of all owner and driver enjoyment, with a price point that significantly undercuts the competitors in this marketplace."
