British Sports Car manufacturer. Founded in 1954 by Brian Lister, it took the fight to Jaguar and Aston Martin, but ceased car building in 1959 due to the death of Lister driver Archie Scott-Brown. The company was re-established in the 80's by ex-Jaguar engineer Laurence Pearce, selling tuned Jaguars. In 1993 Lister launched their first new car, the Storm, with a huge Jag 7.0 litre engine. The car would go on to have success in the late 90's, winning a number of European championships, but success at the Le Mans 24 hours for it and its short lived brother, the GTL, would always elude it.
Lister now have a Le Mans Prototype program, building first the Lister Storm LMP, which had very little success at all, and now the Storm Hybrid. Though much success will probably never be achieved due to lack of any serious funding.
The Lister Storm won the 2000 FIA GT Championship, but the LMP was never really any good.
