With only ten examples to be made and each priced at £1 million (Stirling, naturally), your chances of seeing a Lister Knobbly Stirling Moss edition are pretty slim. But if you’re in Monterey this week, you can check it out in person at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
The revived Knobbly is a continuation version of the Jaguar-powered roadsters Lister made back in the 1950s – like the rare magnesium example that Stirling Moss drove to victory at Silverstone in 1958. Earlier this summer, Lister revived that both in spirit and practice with a special edition that featured the same low-drag, lightweight magnesium bodywork and a lighter tubular steel chassis.
Power comes from a 3.8-liter inline six that’s a reproduction of the Jaguar D-Type engine used in the original. It produces 337 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque, and with just 1,850 pounds to motivate, it’ll rocket to 60 in under four seconds and top out over 180 mph.
The Moss edition also features a mattering of other magnesium components, a special green and yellow livery, and Sir Stirling’s own endorsement. In fact the 86-year-old retired racing driver will be on hand to show off his namesake roadster himself at Pebble Beach over the weekend at the Inn at Spanish Bay.
