Not your average Lister!

Something that goes against the heavy, slow, quiet tradition of listers.

Nice, but the home brewed steampunk motorcycle held my interest more, the level of engineering, design and innovative thinking was a lot closer to mine!

Still not quite sure how a business that specialized in diesel engines got into motor racing. They were however very good at it, I believe they were also involved in some of the development of high powered diesel engines used in 24 hour racing, where reliability is paramount.

Nice car but I`d give it less than a week on the dirt roads we have out here.
