LONDON, England – Lister Motor Company, a specialist, 65-year old, all-British specialist sport-car maker, has confirmed that it will launch what is claimed to be he world’s fastest SUV.

Lister says the LFP will produce around 500kW, be capable of 320km/h, launch to 100km/h in 3.5sec thanks in part to extensive carbon-fibre modifications, and has the potential to be the world’s fastest SUV.

OLDEST RACE-CAR MAKER

Lister is already taking orders for what it calls ”a new monster-killer SUV”. How much, you ask…? How about the equivalent (Sept 2018) of R2 730 000?

Lister, Britain’s oldest surviving race-car company, was named the fastest-growing firm in the UK’s motor industry in 2017 and, for the first quarter of 2018, by leading independent financial analysis specialist Plimsoll

Also about to be launched is a Lister Tuning Division with its HQ in north-western England.

The automaker says early prospective customer interest in the LFP is ”considerable”, prompting the Company to open its order book now, ahead of the official reveal of the model, and final specifications will be confirmed soon.

COMING SOON: HOT JAGUAR

Lister CEO Lawrence Whittaker told The Corner in a media release:  “I’am delighted by the huge interest and by orders for our LFT-666 supercar. Based on early indications, the LFP promises to repeat this success of the LFT-666.”

He explained that the nascent tuning division has already started with modifications to Jaguar’s F-Type.
