Lister made a modern supercar named Storm

Historic British performance marque Lister has given a glimpse at the design of a successor to its Storm supercar. The design looks to maintain the stubby, wedge-shaped silhouette of the original Storm, so as earlier car’s split front fascia. There also appears to be central stabilizerfin. There are no further details but Lister in 2014 said it wanted to enter the supercar market with an exclusive model costing over $3 million.

 The original Storm supercar was launched in 1993

The original Storm supercar is an incarnation of Lister. It featured a 7.0-liter V-12 borrowed from a Jaguar XJR-9 prototype race car. They made just 90 examples for road use plus a handful more for endurance racing.

To raise the funds necessary to develop the new Storm, Lister is churning out continuation versions of its famous Knobbly race car. The company also recently returned to tuning Jaguars; it’s hopeful of transforming itself into the unofficial performance arm of Jaguar, similar to what Alpina is to BMW and AMG was to Mercedes-Benz before they  brought it in-house.
