Legendary race car builder Lister has just revealed its latest FIA-approved historic race car.
Fifty years ago, Lister competed against the likes of Lotus in motorsport series around the world, but now it builds historic-spec racing cars. This 'Stirling Moss Edition' is its latest creation.
The company calls it an 'exact continuation of the super lightweight Knobbly that led Stirling Moss to victory at Silverstone in 1958.' That car was a Jaguar run by the motorsport team of Brian Lister, the founder of Lister Cars.
What makes this new edition so special, is that it is built to such exact specifications that it is eligible for historic motor racing. Only 10 are due to be built, and they're road legal should the owner wish to drive it away from the circuit.
The body shell, engine sump, rear differential, gearbox and clutch casings have been fashioned from magnesium to keep weight low. The design echoes that of the original car, and it wears the original Lister green and yellow paint job.
Each of the 10 owners will receive entry into the Stirling Moss Trophy Series for one year, as well as on-track driver training with Tiff Needell to help them be competitive. They'll also have an expert team on hand, free of charge, for the first race, and will receive a bespoke Lister racing suit.
