The Lister company was best known as a racing outfit and for preparing racing cars for a number of mainstream manufacturers like Jaguar, Maserati and Chevrolet. But in the mid-90s, Lister decided to make their own supercar using a highly tuned Jaguar V12 engine. They called the new model the Storm and it featured a V12 engine producing 550 HP. The engine displaced 7.0-liters they derived it from a Le Mans racer.
Lister made their own body featuring a wider track to accommodate wide tires as well as 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 and a racing version for private teams. However, despite the brutal power, 4.0 seconds to 60 mph and over 210 mph, only four customers ever ordered it.
