Lister Motor Company announces expansion plans after sales increase

Cambridge-based Lister Motor Company has generated an order book with a value of over £3 million and has announced plans to expand into new product development.

Lister, which was re-launched at the end of 2013, has successfully sold nine of the limited run of its £350,000 ‘Knobbly’ anniversary cars.

Now, the management team has announced its desire to expand the Lister business into new product development, with the intention of launching a sophisticated Hypercar.

Lawrence Whittaker, managing director of Lister Cars, says: “Our aspiration has always been to return the Lister brand to the forefront of people’s minds.

“The ‘Knobbly’ project has firmly established that the Lister name still has enormous good will and we know we have a brand with a lot of marketable collateral attached to it.

“Over the coming years our ambitions are to create a world beating brand new Hypercar with a list price of somewhere in the region of £2million.

“We are currently seeking external investors that have the desire to join us on what promises to be an incredible journey, because if we proceed with our ambitious plans, it is fundamental that the entire project is sufficiently resourced in order to deliver a serious, world-beating new product.”
