Back in the mid-1990’s a British car maker Lister designed a car called the Storm, a 7.0-liter V12-powered homologated race car. Sadly, only four cars were made and Lister faded into obscurity despite some success on the race track. Storm II
Lister Cars owner Lawrence Whittaker revealed yesterday via Twitter his company’s plan to bring the Storm back, in the form of a mid-engine supercar dubbed the Storm II.

Currently there is no official information on the Storm II other than the picture above. Right now all we have to work with is speculation and Autocar has been fueling the rumor mill. They claim the car will be powered by a Jaguar-derived supercharged 7.8-liter V12 making more than 1000 horsepower. If that doesn’t seem ambitious enough they are aiming to get the car to go 0-60 in under three seconds and a top speed of over 250mph and bank breaking price of $2.6 million. However, one of this has been confirmed by the car maker.
We have no idea when the Storm II will make its debut but at the moment Lister is working on the Jaguar F-Type-based Thunder. They released it last month and have received a record number of orders.
