Lis­ter Mo­tor Com­pany to be­gin build of Lis­ter Costin con­tin­u­a­tions

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

The Lis­ter Mo­tor Com­pany is to build a run of con­tin­u­a­tion mod­els of the late 1950s Lis­ter Costin sports-rac­ing car.

The Jaguar-en­gined car was de­signed by aero­dy­nam­i­cist Frank Costin and used a low- drag al­loy body. Pe­riod ex­am­ples were raced by drivers like Stir­ling Moss and Ivor Bueb and were ca­pa­ble of over 180mph. Now, Lis­ter is to build con­tin­u­a­tion cars from orig­i­nal chas­sis jigs, with in­put from three of the orig­i­nal Lis­ter en­gi­neers.

Each car will cost £295,000 plus VAT and will come com­plete with HTP doc­u­ments to al­low it to be raced in cer­tain his­toric events.
