EV NEWS / A breath of fresh air
Lister – the oldest racing car company in the UK with links with Jaguar spanning many decades – is renowned for its skill to create exclusive and luxurious, high-performance cars, as evidenced by the LFT-666 which is based on the Jaguar F-Type SVR coupé and the LFT-C convertible.
Now, the Cambridgeshire manufacturer has taken the wraps off the latest in a long line of stunning, hand crafted and bespoke products – the Stealth, Britain’s fastest and most powerful SUV based on the already highly dynamic Jaguar F-Pace SVR.
IT’S ALL ABOUT THE SPEED
With mind-blowing power and speed, the Stealth enhances the Lister reputation even further, and to claim the title of “Britain’s fastest SUV” the 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine of the SVR was thoroughly reworked by Lister’s team of highly experienced engineers.
They set to work on the engine and cooling system with a custom-built intercooler, high-performance air filtration system and upgraded dual supercharger pulleys to ensure it delivers an outstanding 497 kW and 881 Nm of torque – a 22% increase over the standard car.
The Stealth accelerates with the same urgency as a modern supercar and reaches a top speed of 314 km/h. It sprints from 0-100 km/h in a mere 3.7 seconds, making it the fastest accelerating SUV Britain has ever produced – as recently proven after the Stealth beat the Lamborghini Urus, Aston Martin Vantage and McLaren 570 GT in a drag race at the renowned VMAX200 testing ground.
Much like specials from Brabus and Hamann, the Lister Stealth showcases its intent with some bold and brash handcrafted bodywork enhancements, including a redesigned carbon fibre front bumper with two huge air intakes, a large carbon fibre rear diffuser in the sculpted rear bumper, matching side skirts and wider wheel arches.
