666hp Lister Stealth is Anything But

666 hp Lister Stealth is Britain's fastest and most powerful SUV

  • 666 hp from highly modified Jaguar F-Pace

  • Super-SUV can top 315 km/h

 


Lister Motor Company has taken Jaguar’s already stonking F-Pace and made it even quicker. Calling it Britain’s most powerful and fastest SUV, the Stealth makes 666 hp and can tickle the edge of 320 km/h.

The company started in 1954, building its own racing cars in the early days before beginning to redesign existing Jaguar racers with improved bodies, engines, and performance. After disappearing in the 1960s, the name came back in 1986 attached to a company modifying roadgoing Jaguars into 320 km/h beasts at a time where that figure was nearly unattainable.

The Stealth takes the 5.0L supercharged V8 from the F-Pace SVR and modifies with upgraded supercharger pullies, a custom intercooler and new air intake system along with powertrain calibrations to bring the total to 666 hp and 650 lb-ft. 116 hp more than stock generates a lot of heat, so the Lister Stealth gets a new nose and plenty of air vents in the carbon fibre bumper. A carbon fibre bumper that Lister shows splashing through a muddy lot, making all of us cringe and wait for some very expensive sounds.

It’s enough power to push the Stealth from 0-100 km/h in 3.6 seconds, and the automaker says that it recently beat the Lamborghini Urus, Aston Vantage, and McLaren 570 GT in a drag race. And yes, we realize only one of those is an SUV. It can hit 316 km/h flat-out, and that, Lister says, makes it Britain’s fastest SUV.

Yes, the brakes are upgraded to bring this big cat back to a stop after a 300 km/h run.

Other bespoke body bits include a carbon fibre rear diffuser and new rear bumper that the company says works with the front splitter to create more downforce. The exhaust also boasts stainless tips and “an unmistakable and thunderous soundtrack.”

Inside is Bridge of Weir Nappa leather with up to 36 colours to pick from and 90 different stitching options covering the entire interior. Production is limited to just 100, starting from £109,950. That’s $191,000, so about $100,000 more than the 4.3-seconds and 283 km/h F-Pace SVR.
