Lister – Jaguar

Lister – Jaguar
Brian Lister and the cars
from Cambridge

By Paul Skilleter

[Home Page]


This new book is hard-bound with a colourful dust jacket, large format (9 x 12 approx.), and 270 pages and printed on semi-gloss art paper with jacket with over 1000 photographs and illustrations.

Through this extensive and unique selection of several hundred high-quality monochrome photographs, plus rare period Kodachromes, the book tells how – often in his own words – Brian Lister evolved a series of sports racing cars which culminated in the all-conquering Lister-Jaguars of the late 1950s.

Also included is material on the remarkable Archie Scott Brown, the handicapped motor racing hero who from almost nowhere, rose to take on established stars such as Stirling Moss, Mike Hawthorn, Tony Brooks and Roy Salvadori – though his story is tinged with tragedy, as he died in an accident at Spa in May 1958.


The story of Brian Lister and the Lister-Jaguars evokes the late 1950’s era of glorious front-engined sports cars driven by the top drivers of the day. The Lister-Jaguar won at almost every circuit in Britain and, entered by Briggs Cunningham, was virtually unbeatable in America. It continued to keep the Jaguar name in the forefront of sports car racing long after the D-type became obsolete. The green and yellow cars from Cambridge were simply the best of their kind, and added lustre to Jaguar’s name and to the reputation of British engineering.
