British specialist sports car maker The Lister Motor Company is currently the fastest growing company within the competitive British motor industry business sector, and the 28th largest in the UK market, according to independent analysis results just revealed by leading business finance specialists Plimsoll Publishing Limited. This research supports the fact that Lister’s sales have increased by 140 per cent over the previous 12 month period.
This news follows Lister’s recent announcement that to date it is unique in being the only automotive company making original specification continuation cars that are eligible for fully-legal registration and road use. Unlike other continuation specials which are strictly limited to track use only, the new road legal Lister Knobbly is fully eligible for IVA type approval.
In addition, within the last 12 months, Lister has also revealed two other significant new models; the highly-desirable magnesium-bodied Knobbly Stirling Moss Edition, plus the aerodynamic Costin continuation model announced late last year, with each of these cars being built at George Lister Engineering in Cambridge, using the Company’s original chassis jigs and some of the original Lister engineering craftsman from the 1950s.
