Lister Cars was a manufacturer of sports cars in the United Kingdom. Beginning in 1954, company manager, Brian Lister, brought out a series of sports cars which saw success against the Jaguar D-types and Aston Martins of the era. However, the death of one-armed Lister driver, Archie Scott-Brown, soured the image of racing and the company ceased car building in 1959.
The Lister company returned in the 1980s with engineer Laurence Pearce, building a series of tuned Jaguars. Success at this endeavor led the company to design a new sports racer, the Lister Storm. Launched in 1993 as a street version, it would use the largest V12 engine ever fitted to a production road car up to that time. The homologated street version of the Storm GT used a 7.0 L (6996 cc/426 in?) Jaguar engine. Today, the company continues to build a track-only Le Mans-type prototype racer, the Lister Storm LMP, with a modified Chevrolet V8 engine.
