Iconic British sports car maker Lister has revealed full details and pricing for its recreation of the classic Lister Jaguar 'Knobbly' race car.
The new continuation model of the Lister Jaguar D-type, nicknamed 'Knobbly' due to its muscular bodywork, will cost approximately £300,000 in race specification. A road-going version will also be offered, priced at around £311,000.
Lister says the cars will provide "an all-new, factory approved, entry into FIA/HTP Appendix K historic racing, without the risk of buying non-factory recognised, replica cars which may prove to be ineligible".
A company spokesman said that Lister only intends to manufacturer around 10 cars a year, as increased demand would require a considerable rethink with regards to the logistics of production. It's claimed that 50 per cent of the current annual production capability is already sold.
It's hoped, however, that the new car will help bring the Lister brand back into the public eye and allow the company to develop a sound financial platform, from which it could "explore all-new designs".
