The Lister Storm V12 Race Car (Lister Storm GT) is a race-ready variant of a sports car that features throughout the Gran Turismo Series. The Jaguar V12-powered Storm first appeared as a Race Modified version of the Lister Storm V12 '94 in Gran Turismo 2 and has featured in its own right in all mainline versions of the game since. This includes Gran Turismo PSP.

Although the car doesn't show a driver number, it clearly appears to be the #25, driven by Julian Bailey, who achieved a 19th place finish in the Driver's Championship of the 1999 FIA GT Championship season.

DescriptionEdit

‎"Dominated two classes in the UK GT championships, and was successful in the FIA GT championship."

British carmaker Lister was active in sports car racing in the 1950s, using Bristol and Jaguar engines in their cars Legendary driver Stirling Moss drove a Lister-Jaguar to a win the support race for the 1958 British Formula 1 Grand Prix. Lister retired the following year, but the name returned to racing in the 1980s in a series of Jaguar sports car events in 1991, the company was back on the racing circuit with a new car.

It was the Lister Storm, equipped with a 6996-cc Jaguar V12. The Storm used an old style aluminum chassis at a time when using carbon composite was the norm, but thanks to the raw power of the engine, the 1438-kg race car hit speeds of up to 208 mph. After a street version hit the market in 1993, Lister entered the Storm in a variety of GT races in Europe and the U.S., including the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona, the BPR Global GT Series and the FIA GT Championship.

The Storm dominated the British GT Championships, taking seven GT1 class wins and GT2 class wins. It also made a good showing at the FIA GT Championship finals. In the FIA GT Championship of 2000, the Storm won five of the ten races to take the Team Title. The company also took the Team Title at the British GT Championship.
