Blurb about Lister
In 2013 The Lister Motor Company was acquired by father and son team Andrew and Lawrence Whittaker.
2013 marked 60 years since the first Lister racing car and to celebrate this landmark the Whittakers’ first major venture was to announce ten Lister Knobbly continuation cars. These iconic tool room copies were manufactured using the same techniques, jigs and bucks as the originals and all ten cars had secured deposits within just four weeks of their release.
Financial stability and an ethos of extremely high production build quality has led to the Lister brand once more burning brightly, with values of original cars increasing significantly since the Lister Motor Company was reborn.
Lister is one of the greatest racing car manufacturers in the world. Between 1954 and 1959 only 50 original cars were produced but they won or were placed, over 2000 times in track events worldwide.
The Lister was driven by some of the most notable racing car drivers of the 50s including: Archie Scott Brown, Stirling Moss, Ivor Beub, Bruce Halford and Innes Ireland amongst many others.
