The Lister Jaguar XJS is a high-performance sports car that was produced by Lister Cars in collaboration with Jaguar between 1986 and 1993. It was based on the Jaguar XJS platform but featured numerous upgrades and modifications that improved its performance and handling. The Lister Jaguar XJS was powered by a 5.3 litre V12 engine that produced 600 horsepower, making it one of the most powerful production cars of its time. It also featured a specially tuned suspension system, upgraded brakes, and a lightweight aluminium body that reduced weight and improved agility. The interior of the Lister Jaguar XJS was also upgraded with premium leather seats, a premium audio system, and other luxury features. The car was available as a coupé or convertible and was offered with a range of customisation options to suit individual customer preferences. It was well-received by critics and enthusiasts alike for its impressive performance, luxurious features, and stylish design. It was also a successful race car, with Lister Cars fielding a modified version of the XJS in numerous competitions.

This Lister Jaguar was converted by Lister in 1991 but only in body and not mechanics or interior. Its six-litre engine is mated to an automatic gearbox and this particular car is numbered, according to records, as number 79 and is presented in Rossa Red with a Magnolia leather interior and red piping. The car still carries its original registration number and was delivered new in March 1991. It comes with some original manuals including its Lister Jaguar service book which shows a full service history up until 2007 when the last main service was carried out with 43,345 miles showing on the odometer (now showing 43,368) in the original leather Lister Jaguar wallet and it also comes with new MoT test certificate. These cars are brutishly attractive with flared arches, synonymous of the Lister conversions and this example still sits on the correct and fabulous Lister wheels. Today, the Lister Jaguar XJS remains a highly sought-after collectible car, prized for its rarity and historical significance. It continues to inspire and excite car enthusiasts around the world with its timeless design.
