I stumbled across this little fella the other day (along with a few of his unbent mates).

Well done Mr Zarse,
Not far from your manor I'd say, sadly everything looked a little forlorn.
"Dashboard bugle"! blimey Neil, that's a keen eye you have, these designers think of everything, mind you I'd have to say that if the driver has time for a little tootle on the go then he's probably not trying hard enough.

The fact that there's a V12 sized hole itting there is a clue. But the big give away was the nasty nineties "rainbow effect" on the C pillar. It puts me in mind of the rainbow branded gay pub in my local village, so i guess it could well be locted in my manor H. Wasn't this one that got trashed in the British GT series? I think it was driven by Crisp/Inman/Grayson and spun off after John Inman's pink feather boa got caught up in the steering wheel. A fire ensued, singeing his flameproof astracan coat and leaving him to wiggle his way across the gravel trap, not easy when you're wearing slingbacks.

Lister sadly never seemed to recover from the Storm LMP1 debacle, imagine how screwed up you'd have to be to ask Andy Thorby to desgn a car after he'd done all that bad stuff with the Panoz.

Laughing aside, I've had Dashboard Bugle and it's not nice. It was caused by the seatbelt rubbing on my lap, or at least that's what i told the policeman who'd stopped me.

A couple more pix:
I thought the rainbow effect was more to do with identifying the driver crew, Zippy, Bungle and George. I think the colours were arranged differently for the sister car, piloted by (correct me if I'm wrong) Rod, Jane & Freddy. Andy, I think you're thinking of Team Shut That (garage) Door.
You can just make out the tailgate euphonium.

I think Lister are in Dorking these days. It's where dorks come from. I remember when Lister Engineering was just down the way from my place in Birmingham, just off the Tyburn Road.

I know Lister used to have a unit in an industrial estate in Leatherhead (there's a one for a word association game,- Industry:Leatherhead), although I think they may be called Business Parks these days. Whether or not it's still there I'm not sure, maybe it's a Going Out Of Business Park now.
These shots were taken in a lovely little place they've got near Ewhurst, - I understand they bought it off Pink Floyds manager Steve O'Rourke (it could have been an executors sale), anyway he used to keep his classic cars in there. I don't think Lister endeared themselves to the locals by running V12 race engines on a test bed out the back.
Maybe Kevin Keegan's going to buy it.
Any road up, I'm getting all excited now, I reckon I must be taking a whole brass band to LM. First off there's the carb trumpets, then there's the cockpit buglers, the back seat tromboners and boot parpers, rear end horn-pipes, cornets on the way down and possibly a French horn. Holy sh*t, you should hear me coming with that lot!

Kevin Keegan and Lister eh? Still it makes more sense than Newcastle United and Glen Rhoeder.

No doubt Kev's Lister would break down on the back of the curcuit, he'd feel a bit tired, take a little nap and then the next thing he knows is he's having his head beaten with a baseball bat in an apparently motiveless attack which will remain a mystery for years... Officer.

Keegan; rather like the Gimp, his eyes tell a story of secret sexual deviance. In fact, I've often wondered about the wisps of bubble-permed hair poking out the back of that leather mask.
