You can read all about the history of that effort, and the coupe that eventually evolved, right here, but the pressing subject at the 2019 Goodwood Revival, was how to make that fast car, even faster. So fast that driver David Hart could compete with the big boys at the front of the Sussex Trophy. The Knobblies, Ferrari 246S Dino and co.
David turned to Woodham Mortimer to complete that job, and after a reasonable amount of work, the Lister would not only be faster, but fast enought to bring David the fastest lap of the race.
