The Lister LFT-C is here to please your ears

Get the roof down and drink in the noise of a 5.0-litre supercharged V8

Ladies and gentlemen, prepare your ears: the Lister LFT-C is here. 

As you can probably tell, it’s a convertible version of the brilliantly bonkers, Jaguar F-Type R-based LFT-666 that was introduced back in August 2018.

Like the 666, the LFT-C features the Jag’s 5.0-litre supercharged V8, which is tuned by Lister to produce a neatly hellish 666bhp. That power, combined with new carbon body panels, means the LFT-C has a top speed in excess of 205mph and will get to 62mph from a standstill in just over three seconds. 

That’s mighty fast, but it also means that the LFT-C takes the title for fastest open top Lister ever. Some feat considering it displaces the mega Lister-Jaguar XJS Le Mans from 1989, complete with its 7.0-litre V12.

Whereas the coupe LFT-666 had a production run of 99 vehicles, the LFT-C will be limited to just 10 worldwide, so you best get an order in if you’re keen. Most buyers won’t simply pay the £139,000 start price though, as Lister says it offers ‘unlimited bespoke customer options’. 

Before those options, the interior is fully-clad in Nappa leather – including the roof-lining and the dashboard. Much yellow appears to be available if you want your colour scheme to prove nearly as loud as that V8.
