Lister Gives Us Much Better Look At Upcoming Knobbly Sports Car

Lister boss Lawrence Whittaker first tweeted a single teaser image showing the profile of the new Knobbly last month. Now, he just gave us a much better look at his company’s new sports car.

At the front, the new Lister Knobbly features a curvaceous front grille that evokes memories of the original Knobbly from the 1950s. Additionally, the car has round headlights and a hood that seems to stretch on forever. Much like the Ferrari Monza, the Knobbly is a Speedster in the truest sense of the word and has an open cabin with just a tiny windshield and small side windows.

Other than confirming that the new-age Knobbly will be built, the British car manufacturer has released no additional details about the vehicle. We don’t know what will power it, how much it will cost, how many units will be built, or even if it will be road-legal.

Top Gear speculates that, due to Lister’s close relationship with Jaguar, the Knobbly will likely use either a V6 or V8 from the F-Type. If Lister elects to use Jaguar’s range-topping 5.0-liter supercharged V8, it could be tuned to pump out 666 hp like the F-Type-based Lister Thunder.

    Open a picture of a Cobra in Photoshop and ruin, I mean morph it. Wow. Great job. Slow clap ensues. And what’s the deal with “designers” thinking it’s a good idea to have practically zero windshield?

    Looks like a modern Knobbly.

    All we asked for.

    Beautiful car but, no roof will have much more limited appeal.
