Behold: the 1959 Lister-Jaguar ‘Knobbly’ – one of the most successful race cars of its era, combing a Jaguar straight-six engine and drivetrain with a lightweight tube-framed chassis designed by Lister, Jaguar’s motorsports partner.
This particular car – whose documents list 53 podium finishes, including 29 firsts, 15 seconds and 9 thirds – has been meticulously maintained and remains (vintage) race ready.
Yours for a mere €2,500,000 – €3,100,000.
Behold: the 1959 Lister Jaguar Sports Racer – a tube-framed sportswear made by driver Brian Lister in Cambridge, powered by a Jaguar straight six engine and raced by the team of US driver Briggs Cunningham (which won the SCCA C-Modified National Championship in it).
Still wearing its original white and blue striped Briggs Cunningham livery, the car – which was also driven by British racing legend Sir Stirling Moss – fetched €960,000 at auction ten years ago.
It goes under the hammer again (for considerably more) next January.
