The Lister Storm is a sports car featured in the Gran Turismo series. The road-going Storm debuted in Gran Turismo 2, but has been succeeded by its race modified counterpart in every Gran Turismo game since.
The Lister Storm V12 comes in three colors upon purchase.
- Dark Blue
Introduced in 1993, only 4 road-going Lister Storms were ever produced. The car featured a twin-supercharged 7.0L Jaguar V12 developing 591 bhp with a top speed of 201 mph (323 km/h). The dramatically-styled 4-seater coupe was Lister's first attempt at producing their own car from the ground up, previous models having been modified Jaguar models.
In Gran Turismo 2, the Storm was featured as a road-going car with the option to transform it into a racing machine. It made its return for the next two editions of the franchise exclusively in its FIA GT form.
The Lister Storm is considered to be one of the greatest performing cars featured in any Gran Turismo game.
This description is taken from the PAL version of Gran Turismo 2:
For sheer on the road presence there's little to touch Lister's Storm. It's a supercar for the man who already has a garage full of Ferraris and now wants to try something a bit different, it simply breaks all the rules. It's as wide as a Lamborghini, but is a genuine 2+2, has a proper boot and even has the engine in the front (somewhat unusual for a supercar these days). What's also unusual is the size of the engine. The Storm features a seven litre Jaguar V12 engine that uses two superchargers to raise 594 bhp and 580 lb/ft of torque. The power to weight ratio is almost 400 bhp per ton and you should see 60 mph in just 4.1 seconds. When it comes to stopping there are no anti lock brakes, although ample provision has been made in the shape of 14 inch Brembo discs at the front and 12.5s at the rear. Braking is as awesome as performance. In order to help put the power down through the rear wheels the Storm comes with Racelogic traction control, not to mention a sophisticated chassis too. The Storm uses race car style 'ground effect' design to channel the airflow under the car and generate downforce and thereby aid grip. The suspension itself consist of unequal double wishbones with anti roll bars front and rear. On top of that the whole lot is completely adjustable just like it is on a proper race car. The bodyshell is another bit of hi-tech wizardry, with an aluminium honeycomb monocoque and carbon composite roof and outer panels. Lister cars itself was first formed back in the 50's as a motor racing team which enjoyed success at Le Mans with modified Jaguar D-Types. A racing version of the Storm has subsequently competed at Le Mans in the colours of Newcastle United - the team's sponsors.
