The teaser image of the Lister SUV clearly shows the F-Pace SVR lineage
New limited-run machine will be heavily modified Jaguar, and is set to feature a 670bhp engine
The reborn British company recently showcased a development version of the Lister Thunder, a heavily reworked F-Type R that is the first in a series of models based on Jaguar Land Rover. The firm’s ultimate plan is to produce a new bespoke Lister Storm.
While Lister has only teased the new SUV in a tweet saying it is ‘coming soon’, the F-Pace lineage of the machine can clearly be seen in the accompanying image.
Lawrence Whittaker – who bought the firm in 2013 – recently told Autocar that it has begun work on an F-Pace SVR conversion, which could have as much as 670bhp. For comparison, the F-Pace SVR will feature a 542bhp 5.0-litre V8 petrol engine.
