The guys from the brand Lister are going to resurrect their sports car, which was produced in the middle of the last century.

The British company Lister is going to resurrect its legend, which will be known as Kobbly (the original version of the car in the photo above). This is a futuristic speedster with a retro design inspired by the original race car of the last century.

The Cambridge automaker has just released another teaser image of its supercar on its Facebook page.

The best part is that the new Knobbly will not be just a concept, since the guys from Lister are going to launch it into mass production.

  Although all the secrets about the technical composition of the novelty, as well as about the date of commencement of production were not disclosed, this time we can look at the design of the front part. When creating the car, the company’s specialists were clearly inspired by the original Knobbly – the new version of the old legend has a characteristic oval grille and round headlights. We also note the carbon edge of the front bumper, which blends well with carbon side skirts.

Like its predecessor of the 50s of the last century, the new Knobbly will retain an open-top double layout, but its general forms will become more aggressive. The car has a rather low ground clearance and massive multi-spoke alloy wheels.

 As for the British engine, it is expected that Lister engineers will install V12 there. Or maybe a 5.0-liter V8 made by Jaguar will be chosen. The latter is used in the Lister LFP, which is the Jaguar version of the F-Pace crossover. This engine can produce 670 horsepower. The original Lister Knobbly was equipped with a 3.8-liter row six with a capacity of 330 horsepower.

Not so long ago, our publication wrote that Formula E is returning to the British capital.
