Niche British sports car manufacturer Lister is opening its own dealership in Lancashire.
The company will run a purpose-built, £5 million, car showroom at Blackburn under the Lister Classics brand, from which it is selling its own classics and displaying its LFT-666/Thunder prototype, which was shown recently at the London Motor Show.
The site will also sell supercars and prestige cars from other marques.
“There is a gap in the market for classic car dealers here in the north-west of England; Lister Classics will now bring the world’s finest cars to Lancashire,” said Lawrence Whittaker, chief executive of The Lister Motor Company.
“As a car enthusiast and collector myself, I know what potential buyers of classic cars look for when in-market for a special car.
“Lister Classics offers a fuss-free, modern approach to buying classic cars, providing all the facilities you would expect at a modern car dealership, but with the personal approach and attention to detail you expect when buying a special vehicle.”
Whittaker is also the chief executive of warranty firm WarrantyWise.
