Dubbed the Lister LFP, the SUV is based on the Jaguar F-Pace while the technicians at Lister has copiously reworked on every bit of the SUV to make it the fastest among the fast machines. Full details of the bespoke Lister LFP are still under wraps, but the company has revealed the vital statistics to chew upon till the launch.
The Lister LFP will produce around 670bhp and it will have a top speed of 322kmph. The SUV is expected to breach 0-96kmph time of just 3.5 seconds, with extensive carbon fibre modifications helping to potentially make it the world's fastest SUV. To put it into perspective, the current fastest SUV in the world, Lamborghini Urus takes 3.6 seconds to reach 96 kmph and its top whack is 305 kmph.
Having said that, Lister LFP will interior to Tesla Model X's figures. The Tesla SUV in its 'Ludicrous Mode' will take just 2.9 seconds to breach 96kmph speed while top speed is limited to 250 kmph. Then again Tesla Model X is an electric SUV hence comparing it forced induction motor is not right.

The imminent release of our new monster killer LFP promises to see this healthy situation continue for the remainder of this year, and beyond," said Lawrence Whittaker, CEO of the Lister Motor Company.
