The Lister Motor Company has unveiled the first example of its new Lister LFT-C at their Lancashire Headquarters. Carrying chassis number 01, it is the first of just 10 cars to be built for the global market and continues a bloodline of limited-edition supercars to carry the Lister badge.
The Lister LFT-666 coupe, launched in 2018 with production limited to just 99 vehicles, has been universally well received with new cars being delivered around the globe. Requests for an open-top LFT-666 created the concept for the LFT-C, a car giving true supercar performance with the excitement and exhilaration of a convertible, and yet retaining the core Lister DNA of performance and driving precision.
Producing 666bhp from a Lister-tuned and supercharged V8 engine, the Lister LFT-C becomes the most powerful open-top Lister ever built, offering a top speed in excess of 205 mph and a 0-62 mph time of just over three seconds. Taking the fastest open top Lister title from the celebrated Le Mans supercar, the LFT-C is also set to become an instant modern classic with low production volumes, immense pace and stunning looks.
Each Lister LFT-C is manufactured with bespoke Lister carbon-fibre body panels, designed and manufactured in the UK, to give the F-Type increased visual presence and a more aerodynamic profile. These unique additions comprise a new front bumper, front splitter, rear diffuser, rear lip spoiler, rear extended wheel arches and a new grille design with the improved aerodynamic qualities of each aiding the LFT-C to reach speeds in excess of 200mph.
To give the dynamic elements drivers expect from a road-going Lister, the LFT-C uses the same bespoke wheels, exhaust, suspension and braking system as featured on the LFT-666, extensively tuned to suit the characteristics of an open-top supercar. The result is a car that can be enjoyed on both road and track without compromising road comfort or track performance.
