FOLLOWING high demand for an open-top LFT-666, British car manufacturer The Lister Motor Company is launching its most powerful open-top supercar ever – the LFT-C – ready for summer 2019.
The LFT-C has a top speed in excess of 205 mph, and a 0-62 mph time of just over three seconds, thanks to its Lister-tuned and supercharged 666 bhp V8 engine. In addition, the LFT-C receives the same bespoke wheels, exhaust, suspension and braking system as featured on the LFT-666.
Each LFT-C will feature exclusive carbon fibre body panels, designed and manufactured by Lister in the UK
Unique Lister additions include: front bumper, front splitter, rear diffuser, rear lip spoiler, rear extended wheel arches, a new grille design, and new lightweight alloy wheels fitted with Michelin tyres.
Lister has also uprated the suspension and braking system and added a bespoke exhaust system to enhance the sound of the 666 bhp supercharged V8 engine to work perfectly with an open cockpit vehicle.
Every LFT-C will be built to a bespoke customer specification, from wheel design to paint finish.
The LFT-C will be a rare sight, with production limited to just 10 examples worldwide. Pricing starts from £139,000 (€160,000.
The LFT-666 coupe, which was limited to a total of 99 cars, received orders from around the world. Delivery of customer cars commenced in January 2019, with cars heading as far afield as Canada and Australia.
The entire 2019 allocation of cars is now sold; however, buyers can still place an order for delivery in early 2020.
Lawrence Whittaker, CEO of The Lister Motor Company said: “Launching the new LFT-C is a personal triumph, as I have always loved convertible cars, even since my 2nd car, an MG Midget. While we are famous for cars like the Knobbly and the Storm, the LFT series heralds a new era for Lister and continues our historical enhancement of Jaguar drive trains, which dates back to 1957.
“In 2019, we will see the launch of at least two new cars and have also just opened our new headquarters in Lancashire that will be known as the home of the new Lister. There is lots more to come, and we look forward to sharing more news in the near future.”
