JLR wants to sell production equipment to the company

British Lister Motor Co., specializing in the construction of retrosportcars, received an offer from Jaguar Land Rover to sell production equipment for the construction of a three-door Range Rover. The ultra-luxury Range Rover SV Coupe was going to release 999 copies, but due to record losses, they decided to give it up.

According to Autocar, the head of Lister Lawrence Whittaker called the proposal “tempting,” but he believes that the company should focus on releasing new products. We are talking about the sports car New Knobby – a modern version of the iconic speedster Knobbly from the 50s.

Earlier, the construction of a three-door Range Rover said London-based design studio Niels van Roij Design. Its specialists have already begun assembling the first instance of an SUV, which will receive another grille and decorative elements in the style of the serial Range Rover SV Coupe with nameplates Niels van Roij Design.

The three-door Range Rover SV Coupe debuted last year at the Geneva Motor Show. It was planned to release a limited edition of 999 copies and sell at a price of 240,000 pounds. Later, due to record losses and reduced demand for luxury cars in China, the company decided not to launch the model in the series.
