The Iconic Lister Knobbly Historic Racing Car

The Lister was Britain’s most successful sports racing car of the 1950's. The ‘Cars from Cambridge’ designed, and built by Brian Lister, were simply the best of their kind and dominated the field by some of the most notable drivers including, Archie Scott Brown and Stirling Moss amongst many others.

As in the past, the new cars are handcrafted by the expert engineers at the George Lister Engineering Works in Cambridge, and thanks to the dedicated craftsmen, the unmistakably British Lister collection continues to grow since the first continuation car in 2013. At the forefront of continuation production, and with many more productions in the pipeline, the Lister collection is only set to grow.

Archie Scott Brown

William Archibald Scott Brown was born on the 31st May 1927 in Paisley, Scotland.

As a result of German Measles during his mother's pregnancy, Archie was born with severe disfigurement of his legs and right arm. Tremendous determination and countless operations were needed to allow Archie to walk, although he never grew more than 5 feet tall

His disability certainly didn't hinder him behind the wheel and his courageous driving style was not overlooked by Brian Lister. In 1954 Archie swept to prominence in the Lister Bristol, but it wasn't until 1957 that Archie really hit the headlines in the Lister Jaguar, when he proved to be almost unbeatable during the course of the season.

Tragically, Archie died following a crash in a works Lister on the 18th May 1958. He was 31.
