Technical specifications, photos and description:
Lister is one of the most renowned names in sports car racing
history and the Lister-Jaguar. designed by Brian Lister. swept
almost all before it during its first full racing season in 1957.
From the early 1980's the name has also graced some of the world's
fastest road cars and in 1989. with the culmination of six years of
development work. the Lister Le Mans arrived on the supercar scene.
Christened 'Le Mans' to celebrate Jaguar's success there in the
late 80's. the Lister totally transformed its Jaguar XJ-S base into
a mega powerful 200mph supercar. The bored out seven litre
Jaguar engine produced a mighty 600bhp with an identical 600lbft of
torque ensuring effortless acceleration in any gear.
The basic XJ-S body was extensively modified with large alloy
wheels. restyled rear buttresses and a plethora of ground hugging
skirts. spoilers and superb Lister Recaro leather interior. For
those who felt the standard V12 Jaguar engine a bit insipid. Lister
added a comprehensive tuning package. The fuel injection was
modified with four additional injectors and throttle bodies. The
engine management system was tweaked. the heads gas flowed with
larger valves fitted and to take the power the crankshaft was
nitrided; whilst Cosworth conrods carried special forged pistons.
New bearings and a modified oil system were also deemed necessary
in order to reliably deliver the 604bhp that it could now produce.
Clearly the suspension and braking were going to need some
attention; and this they duly got.
This 1989 Lister Jaguar Le Mans Coupé is number five of just
twenty cars built with the full body kit. Used as the
demonstrator and featured in Lister's sales brochure. it was sold
to Jack Walker who. with his brother. developed Walkersteel Ltd.
which was to become the largest steel stockholder in Britain. br/>employing 3. 00 people at 50 sites. In 1956. the turnover was
£46. 00 and by 1988 the business was making an annual profit of
£48m. The Walker brothers bought GKN and then sold it to British
Steel for a reported £360m. the highest price ever paid for a
private company at the time. Jack Walker was also instrumental in
the rise of Blackburn Rovers and within the first three years. he
spent £25 million on new players. twice breaking the British record
for the most expensive transfer of a football playersigning Alan
Shearer from Southampton for £3. 3million in 1992 and Chris Sutton
from Norwich for £5million in 1994. He sold the Lister to one of
his company directors. Mr. Eric Pacethorpe. in 1994. who kept the
car until the end of 2012. This Lister Jaguar Le Mans is in
excellent condition throughout. finished in Guards Red with cream
leather interior and is supplied with a V5C registration document. br/>an MoT test certificate which expires in August 2014. the complete
Lister handbook pack. a copy of the sales brochure and a number of
the old MoT test certificates. The earth shattering noise that this
car produces is justification enough to have it in any collection. br/>let alone its rarity. quality and significance as a part of
Jaguar's extraordinary history.
