Faster than the Lamborghini Urus

Recently revived British company Lister revealed an all-new car - the Lister LFP. It’s a heavily tuned Jaguar F-Pace, crafted to be “the fastest SUV in the world.”

This isn’t the first time that Lister prepared a tuned Jag. In fact, only a month or so ago, the company gave us a car dubbed the LFT-666, a 666-horsepower F-Type with numerous pieces differentiating it from the stock F-Type cars. Obviously, Lister crafted a comprehensive tuning program for the F-Pace as well. After all, one cannot craft the fastest SUV in the world without making a lot of improvements.

What Makes The Lister LFP Special

For a revived company with a 65-year-old history, the new work with Jaguar seems to be going quite well. The LFT-666 was the bestselling Lister ever made, and the introduction of the fastest SUV will only further the company’s success. The new car features several additions over the stock one. Although this is just a render, I can spot several additions.

Lister designers imagined new bumpers, new widebody fenders, and pronounced skirts.

The fenders are a big deal here as they are keeping those new wheels at bay. I don’t know how big they measure right now (as Lister is coy on specifics), but 22 inches would be a nice guess, I think.

What I like the most is the green paint and awesome yellow details on the grille, on the calipers, on the sides, and at the back. The bright yellow spoiler at the back additionally spices up the wow factor of this F-Pace.

Carbon is the material of choice for the decorative pieces inside.

One can find carbon inlays on the doors, and at the central tunnel, right by the gear lever. As one may imagine, Lister used the most luxurious version for its LFP project, which means that this bad boy is a nice place to be in, especially with such nice seats covered with quilted, two-tone leather. Even those signature yellow pieces don’t feel like overkill but actually, give the F-Pace cabin a somewhat flamboyant demeanor. Heck, they went all happy with it giving the door handles the same yellow/greenish finish.

Lister is still a bit shy when it comes to the specs, but considering this thing has 670 horsepower, I will go out on a limb and say that the Lister LFP has a 5.0-liter supercharged engine. Of course, it has. Dialing up the 550 horsepower F-Pace SVR to 670 horsepower LFP definitely included some serious mods to the iconic 5.0-liter. A new supercharger may be in place, as well as a whole new intake and exhaust system. Obviously, the ECU remap is only necessary after any hardware mods. This is just conjecture, mind you, and I am sure Lister will provide more comprehensive information in some time.

For this occasion, Lawrence Whittaker, Lister CEO reported: “The imminent release of our new monster killer LFP promises to see Lister’s healthy situation continue for the remainder of this year, and beyond.”

So, the “monster killer”? Why would anyone use this to describe anything?

In this case, the Urus is actually a monster, and the LFP is a killer. Performance says it all. The Lister LFP can do 62 mph in 3.5 seconds, and it will reach 200+mph. The Urus can’t do that. It will do 190 mph.

Available for purchase in Europe, Canada, and the U.S., the Lister LFP won’t be an affordable proposition. Yet, I find it to be cheap next to the Urus. In the U.K., Lister will sell you the LFP for $181,000. Price for the U.S. hasn’t been revealed yet. Don’t expect it to be much cheaper.

Moving the bar in the SUV world, the Lister definitely stirred some minds at Lambo, Mercedes-AMG, and everywhere else. The Tesla Model X may be punchier off the line (0-60 mph in less than 3 sec), but it is an electric car fundamentally different to what the Lister LFP is. Nevertheless, I can see this Lister going side by side with the Urus, the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk and similar. Lister capped the production to 250 units, making it far more exclusive than any other Jag F-Pace.

With 670 bhp on tap, an estimated 0-60 mph acceleration time of just 3.5 seconds, and a 200 mph top speed, The Lister Motor Company’s new LFP is set to become the fastest SUV in the world, beating the performance of recently-launched SUVs from other well-known prestige car brands, with monster killer performance, faster than most supercars, never mind SUVs.

Set for full release in the coming weeks, Lister’s new LFP will follow the overwhelming success of the devilish LFT-666 coupe, launched earlier this year, and already becoming the fastest-selling model in the all-British specialist sports car maker’s 65-years of continuous history, with first customer deliveries due to commence in October.

Early prospective customer interest in the Lister LFP is already considerable, prompting the Company to open its order book now, ahead of the official reveal of the model, with pricing set to begin at around £140,000, and extensive carbon fibre modifications to help improve weight reduction and road holding. Final specifications will be confirmed in the coming weeks.

Based on early indications, our new LFP promises to repeat the success of the LFT-666, and I really can’t wait to reveal the world’s fastest SUV quite soon.”

He adds “We kicked-off 2018 were we left 2017, as the UK’s fastest-growing company in the competitive motor industry business sector, according to leading independent financial analysis specialists, Plimsoll. Over the past six months the Lister Motor Company has been working very hard, developing our Tuning Division, starting with modifying the Jaguar F-Type, the Lister LFT-666, and setting up our new headquarters in Lancashire. The imminent release of our new monster killer LFP promises to see this healthy situation continue for the remainder of this year, and beyond.”
