La Jaguar F-Pace più veloce a cui si può ambire è la SVR, quella equipaggiata con un V8 da 5.0 litri capace di erogare la potenza di ben 550 CV e 680 Nm di coppia e di scattare da 0 a 100 Km/h in poco più di 4 secondi. Ma fin qui parliamo di auto "di serie". Se ci si vuole spingere oltre, c'è un'altra strada, basta rivolgersi alla britannica Lister Motor Company.

Parliamo di un'azienda specializzata nel motorsport e la Lister Stealth è una sua creatura: "assomiglia" ad un SUV (chiaramente derivato dalla Jaguar F-Pace SVR), ma che ha le prestazioni di una supercar. Basti sapere che la potenza è stata aumentata a 675 CV (881 Nm di coppia).

Un V8 che non ha bisogno di presentazioni

Le modifiche al V8 originale includono un nuovo compressore volumetrico a doppia puleggia, interccoler specifici, filtro aria ad alte prestazioni, uno scarico in acciaio quadruplo e una centralina motore Lister. Detto ciò, la Lister Stealth scatta da zero a 96 km/h in 3,6 secondi e raggiunge la velocità massima di 307 km/h.

Ad aprile la Lister aveva promesso che la Stealth sarebbe stata il "SUV più veloce al mondo". Nel frattempo però, l'arrivo del Dodge Durango Hellcat – che ha un tempo di scatto di 3,5 secondi – ha cambiato le carte in tavola.

Adesso possiamo dire che la Lister Stealth è "il SUV britanno più veloce", battendo la Bentley Bentayga Speed che, con il suo W12 6 litri da 635 CV e 900 Nm di coppia, supera i 300 km/h e scatta da 0 a 100 km/h in 3,9 secondi.

Ce ne saranno 100

Esteticamente la Stealth ha ancora molto della Jaguar F-Pace; indossa però pneumatici più generosi (da 23 pollici) e dettagli in fibra di carbonio, il tutto accompagnato da una griglia generosa... Anche dentro è stata ritoccata, ma anche qui troviamo giusto qualche personalizzazione. Nessuno stravolgimento.

Ne verranno prodotte 100 e il prezzo base di 110 mila sterline (circa 122.000 euro al cambio attuale) può anche salire se la si vuole personalizzare un po'. In ogni caso la garanzia ufficiale arriva a sette anni.

We are proud to unveil the fastest and most powerful SUV Britain has ever produced – the Lister Stealth.

Based on the already dynamic Jaguar F‐PACE SVR, the 666bhp Stealth is the latest in our long line of stunning, hand‐crafted and bespoke products.

To claim the title of Britain's fastest SUV, the Stealth required a thorough update to the 5.0‐litre supercharged V8 engine found in the factory F‐PACE SVR. Our team of highly experienced engineers set to work on the engine and cooling system to ensure it delivers an outstanding 666bhp and 881Nm of torque – a 22% increase over the standard car.

We began the process with a custom‐built intercooler and high‐performance air filtration system for optimising combustion temperatures and airflow into the unit. Upgraded dual supercharger pulleys have the cumulative effect of forcing more air into the combustion chamber for unrivalled levels of performance for this vehicle segment.

Like in the LFT‐666 and LFT‐C, the Lister Engineering Team have applied our proprietary Lister Engine Management System to the Stealth, modifying the programme mapping throughout the process to exploit the Stealth's full capabilities. The result is a five‐seat SUV that can deliver a devilish 666bhp with ease.

The Stealth will accelerate with the same urgency as a modern supercar and keep on going to its top speed of 195mph. In a sprint from 0‐60mph, the Stealth takes a mere 3.6 seconds, making it not only the fastest accelerating SUV Britain has ever produced, but also the most powerful to date. The Stealth adds proof to its claim of being Britain's fastest SUV after recently beating the Lamborghini Urus, Aston Martin Vantage and Mclaren 570 GT in a drag race at the renowned testing ground, VMAX200.

The Lister Stealth showcases its intent with a number of handmade bodywork enhancements that not only exude visual appeal but also contribute to the car's aerodynamic performance and engine cooling. The redesigned carbon fibre front bumper features two large air intakes to aid airflow into the engine, while the front splitter increases aerodynamic efficiency at speed while adding to the Stealth's dynamic handling. Uprated brakes, front and rear, ensure the Stealth stops as well as it accelerates.

A large carbon fibre rear diffuser sits in the middle of an exclusively sculpted rear bumper, creating additional downforce in tandem with the front splitter. We have also fitted a custom‐designed, stainless‐steel exhaust system complete with carbon fibre tips delivering gains in overall power output, giving the Stealth an unmistakable and thunderous soundtrack.

Completing the distinctive exterior look are matching side skirts and wider wheel arches to give the Stealth its purposeful stance. This is all complemented by bespoke, Lister‐designed 23‐inch Vossen forged wheels – the only element of the Stealth not made in the UK.

The Stealth features the highest‐grade Bridge of Weir Nappa leather interior that is tailored to every customer's specification. Up to 36 individual colour choices are available with a further 90 different stitching options covering all aspects of the cabin from the seatbelts, sport seats, dashboard, steering wheel and roof lining. With this level of customisation available, each Lister will boast its own unique identity that's truly personal to each owner.

As with every Lister model, exclusivity is guaranteed, with production limited to just 100 editions. Prices start from £109,950 for this ultimate expression of luxury, practicality and performance, with client consultation appointments available via our website.

Warrantywise, the UK's best used car warranty, provides complete peace of mind for customers with an incredible and unprecedented seven‐year warranty for this class of performance luxury SUV.

Lawrence Whittaker, CEO of The Lister Motor Company, said: "Creating Britain's fastest SUV is not without its challenges, but our in‐house design and development team have created a truly unique and world‐class product with the Lister Stealth. The launch of the Stealth continues our track record of creating bespoke, beautiful cars that major on performance, luxury and most of all owner and driver enjoyment, with a price point that significantly undercuts the competitors in this marketplace."
