Orginally Lister started out tuning Jaguars such as the XJS. The common Lister upgrade was a displacement increase on the V12 from 5.3 to a full 7 liters. In 1991 the company wanted to move on and create there own supercar. After 2 years in development, the first Lister Storm was delivered in 93. Unfortunately due to a high price, only 4 cars were ordered.
The Lister company still retains a strong race program. The company took two high modified GT2 versions of the storm to the 1995 & 2000 24 Hours of Lemans.
