The company will build a new Knobbly

British Lister Motor Co., specializing in the construction of retro sport cars and charged cars based on Jaguar, intends to release a modern version of the iconic speedster Knobbly from the 50s. This was announced by the head and co-owner of the company Lawrence Whittaker on his twitter.

Whittaker posted an image of coupe and said that now the company is actively working on the concept. No additional information about the sports car is reported. Judging by the picture, the new Knobbly will retain the outlines of the source code, but it will be executed in a completely different way with a large number of sharp edges.

Racing Lister Knobbly was produced in the 50s of the last century. In 2017, the company said it would resume production of sports cars and collect 10 more copies with approval for ordinary roads. Like the original, the “renewed” Knobbly is a tubular frame and aluminum panels made using 20th-century technologies. Engines – six-cylinder Jaguar displacement of 4.2 (354 horsepower) and 3.8 (334 horsepower) liters.

Last year, Lister showed “the fastest crossover in the world” – Lister LFP based on the Jaguar F-Pace SVR. It is equipped with an upgraded five-liter compressor “eight”, which gives about 680 forces. The maximum speed of Lister LFP is 322 kilometers per hour. Acceleration from zero to 60 miles per hour (97 kilometers per hour) takes 3.5 seconds.
