The Lister Stirling Moss Edition Is Straight-up Car Porn
Track cars and track day specials are terms you and I have become familiarized with due to the explosive demand for lightweight purpose-built cars, in the last half decade or so. But before this track-day fad started, lightweight specials were one-of-a-kind pieces of art, just like this modern-day Lister.
While you may recall the Lister brand name from the Gran Turismo video game, in reality, Lister’s history dates back to the 1950s, when they built racing chassis like their British compatriots, Lotus. Fast forward to today, and Lister specializes in extremely high-quality and limited production track cars.
The beauty you see pictured here is called the “Lister Jaguar Knobbly Stirling Moss,” and only 10 samples will be built in the coming year. In case you’re wondering how much each stunning example will cost, try a tear-inducing 1.3 million bucks. Why so much? Well, for starters, the chassis and body are all built by hand and without the usage of robotized assembly lines like most modern supercars. If you want to know what other cars in the world have their chassis hand-built in such fashion, you better look at IndyCar’s Dallara chassis and even Formula One teams.
If that doesn’t “justify” the price for you, then perhaps having the keys handed to you by Sir Stirling Moss himself at the time of delivery will do the trick. Seriously, this is not a joke.
While this green and yellow beauty is certainly a special ride, I can only wonder what time will do to the value of these Listers. Will it appraise like other iconic models, or will it stagnate due to its lukewarm badge?
