The Lister SUV - Why?
I mean seriously... WHY!?
I've long been a fan of Lister. I like performance, and I like Jaguar. The Lister XJS was literally THE most exciting XJS money could buy and arguably one of the most exciting cars of its era.
The Lister XJS actually had around 500 Bhp which was mind blowing for the time. It's 7.0 L V12 was and probably still is, THE largest V12 in a production car.
I'm going to stick my neck out and say it, the Lister XJS was a true Ferrari beater in it's day. It was also very exclusive with less than a hundred built!
Well, I want to talk about the latest offering from Lister. In their wisdom, they've decided to produce a tuned, hardcore version of THIS:-

This is a Jaguar F-Pace. It's really designed for rich people to ferry their kids to school and possibly for rich 'sporty types' to take bikes, or canoes, or surfboards etc, etc, to somewhere to do some sporting. [Sorry if the nomenclature I've used here seems a bit odd. You'll have to forgive me - I don't 'sport'.]
Here are my thoughts on this gem of an idea...
My thoughts on the Lister SUV
Now, I can see the fun factor, but I tend to think it's rather limited. The only real argument I can give for the Lister F-Pace is if I won the lottery, I could possibly convince the present Mrs. Stanley to allow me to add one to my fleet of cars, under the guise of it being a nice, practical SUV we could all go on holiday in. I'd just have to make sure she never actually learned what it was....
