Listerbell STR

Listerbell STR

I am new to the club and my car hasn't been seen at any events yet but it is interesting and the Lancia Stratos on which it is based has to be one of the most desirable cars on the planet to a car enthusiast. My car is a Listerbell STR which is best described as a component supercar rather than a kit car. It is built from all new components most of them manufactured by Listerbell using only things like door handles and overcentre catches from another vehicle Fiat X19 as per the original. My car is notable because I have used the Toyota 2GR-fe 3.5 V6 engine which is used in this country in the Lotus Evora. This is the first Listerbell to be manufactured  using this Engine, the Alfa Romeo V6 is normally used. The car is recently completed and has been Dyno'd at 325 HP which in a car weighing 1025 kilos makes it quite lively.The car is externally identical to the Stratos and has been built as a homage to it rather than as a replica.
