The Lister Storm was a homologated racing car manufactured by British low volume automobile manufacturer by Lister Cars with production beginning in 1993. The Storm used the largest V12 engine fitted to a production road car since World War II, a 7.0 L Jaguar unit based on the one used in the Jaguar XJR-9 that competed at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Due to the high price of the vehicle at £220,000, only four examples were produced before production of the road-going Storm ceased. Only three Storms survive today, although the company continues to maintain racing models. The storm was the fastest four-seat grand tourer during the 1990s and early 2000s.
The bored and stroked two-valve V12 engine generated a maximum power output of 546 hp; 553 PS (407 kW) at 6,100rpm and 790 N⋅m (582.7 lb⋅ft) of torque at 3,450rpm. The car weighed 1,664 kg (3,668.5 lb), and was capable of accelerating from 0–97 km/h (60 mph) in 4.1 seconds.
