11. Lister Storm
The Lister company was famous for being a racing outfit. They prepared racing cars for many mainstream manufacturers like Jaguar, Maserati, and Chevrolet. But in the mid-1990s, Lister decided to make their own supercar using a highly tuned Jaguar V12 engine. Their idea behind the supercar was to introduce a brutally fast four-seater Gran Turismo coupe.
It would be capable of breaking speed records and transporting passengers in comfort. Lister called the new model the Storm and it featured a V12 engine with 550 HP. They derived the 7.0-liter engine from a Le Mans racer. Lister made their own body, which featured a wide track to accommodate the wide tires. It had lots of scoops and spoilers for better cooling and aerodynamics.
At the same time, Lister offered the Storm as a passenger car at almost $450,000, as well as a racing version for private teams. However, despite having brutal power, 4.0 seconds to 60 mph and over 210 mph, only four customers ordered it. The reason was that some people thought the car was aggressive-looking, or even ugly. Also, despite being a four-seater, it didn’t have a lot of space in its interior.
