The Lister Storm when it came out in 1993, was a pure racing car built for the road and back in its days held the title of the fastest four seat grand tourer. And now recently, the historic British performance marque Lister has given a glimpse at the design of a successor to its Storm supercar.
The glimpse comes in the form of a teaser sketch posted to Twitter on Wednesday by Lister CEO Lawrence Whittaker along with the message, “A glimpse into the future of Lister...the Storm II.” Design wise, the car looks like a typical current generation supercar with a wedge shaped design and connecting to its predecessor is the split front fascia. There also appears to be central stabilizer fin.
To raise the funds necessary to develop the new Storm, Lister is churning out continuation versions of its famous Knobbly race car. The company also recently returned to tuning Jaguars; it's hopeful of transforming itself into the unofficial performance arm of Jaguar, similar to what Alpina is to BMW and AMG was to Mercedes-Benz before being brought in-house.
The original Storm was powered by one of the largest v12’s at 7 litres and made 546bhp and 790Nm of torque. Going by these numbers the new Storm will be expected to be madder and faster.
