Finished in a gleaming coat of Moose Green Metallic, this rare 200mph behemoth looks nothing short of incredible – our studio photographs really don’t do it justice! The paintwork presents to a great standard throughout having been entirely refreshed some years ago, although a few minor imperfections are visible on close inspection. The car remains lovely and straight along both sides with no unsightly scratches to report, and the bumpers are also free from any damage. Spoilers, air ducts, wide arches and even wider rear tyres ensure the styling of the MkIII is rivalled only by its performance.
The Recaro front seats are trimmed in supple Parchment leather, both presenting to an excellent standard with almost no signs of any wear to be found. Parchment leather extends along the centre console and on to the rear seats, side panels and door cards that are subtly embossed with ‘Lister’. The pale upholstery is nicely contrasted by rich green of the carpets and dash, the cabin lifted further still with glossy walnut inlays typical of the XJS. Other s Lister touches include the three-spoke leather steering wheel, 190mph+ speedometer, and 6-speed gear knob.
ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION
At its heart is a 7-litre V12 equipped with twin radial superchargers for that all-important 200mph top speed; records show the car returning to Lister in 1991 for conversion to ‘Le Mans’ specification. The car has now driven just 29k miles from new and is offered for sale following on from a period in storage. Although running and driving we understand that a level of re-commissioning will be required before it is put back into regular use – please enquire for details.
WHEELS, TYRES AND BRAKES
The Lister sits on 17-inch split-rim alloys in good original condition with only a small amount of age-related wear to report. They are wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport tyres all round – 245/40 ZR17 at the front and 335/35ZR17 at the rear – all with at least 6.5mm of tread remaining. Brake-wise the car sports 6-pot AP Racing calipers at the front with 4-pot APs at the rear; new front brake pads were fitted less than three hundred miles ago.
This rare Lister MkIII was first registered in February 1990. Already equipped with the 7-litre V12 it is understood that the car returned to Lister one year later for conversion to ‘Le Mans’ specification, which included the addition of twin radial superchargers and upgrade to a 6-speed gearbox. The car’s history is well documented in the accompanying paperwork, with a fully stamped service booklet up until 2003 and raft of invoices thereafter. Magazine featured in 2012, it has been used sparingly in recent years to preserve the low mileage of just 29k. Now, after a time in storage we understand that some mechanical re-commissioning will be required before the car is put back into regular use; please enquire for more information.
