The Lister LFP is a 200-MPH F-Pace Itching to be the Fastest SUV in the World
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.
The Lister Thunder Gets A Name Makeover, You Can Now Start Calling it The LFT-666
We previously knew it as the Thunder, but British sports car company Lister is renaming its Jaguar F-Type-based supercar with a somewhat more appropriate name that reflects its capabilities. So instead of the Lister Thunder, we’re going to have to get used to calling this beast the LFT-666. The model isn’t entirely new; in fact, we’ve discussed it a few times the past, most recently in June 2018. But, apparently, a lot has changed since June 2018. The Lister Thunder now goes by a different and far more fitting name.
British sports car company Lister has been around for six decades, but has always been considered a sort of fringe operation. To change that, the company has announced plans to launch an all-new hypercar that will challenge the likes of the McLaren P1, Ferrari LaFerrari and Pagani Huayra.
Auto Express recently spoke with Lister Cars managing director Lawrence Whittaker, who confirmed the new car would be powered by a massive. 7.8-liter V-12. No complex hybrid assistance here; just a supercharger that helps take power to 1,000 horsepower and drives the top speed up to 250 mph. Lister plans to build both the car and engine entirely on its own. A price tag of £2 million ($3.2 million) is estimated.
“We are not interested in building the fastest car we can, but one that puts the Lister name in the forefront of people’s minds with a world-beating product,” Whittaker told Auto Express.
