An original Lister-Jaguar ‘Knobbly’ 3.8 Litre Sports Racer will be offered at Bonham’s forthcoming annual Bond Street Sale.
The incredible and highly original Lister-Jaguar will spearhead an opulent field of vintage and classic vehicles in the capital, 1 Dec 2018 (est: £2,200,000 – 2,800,000).
Historically successful and boasting a spectacular profile, ‘NBL 660’ is presented with second to none detailed documentation.
Successes from 1958-1963 included a remarkable 53 podium places, which included 29 wins, 15 seconds and even a 9 third place finishes.

Astonishingly the vintage purity even includes the car’s original 1958 chassis frame – which was replaced in-period after an accident in 1959, subsequently built into another Lister-Jaguar but retrieved to rejoin ‘NBL 660’ in recent years. Spare engine, original Weber DCO carburettors and suspension replacements also accompany this fabulous lot.
The car is said to be ‘ready to run’ and complete with its valuable original-specification D-Type gearbox.
The car has been preserved and not raced since the previous owner/driver Shaun Lynn’s last appearance in it, although it was driven by multiple Indy ‘500’ winner Dario Franchitti to lead the field pre-start at the spring Goodwood 75th Members’ Meeting in 2017.
A truly incredible and historic thing which personifies the very heart and soul of Historic racing history. This desirable classic could be yours for a little under £3,000,000.
