Lister have unveiled the LFP, which they claim will be the fastest 4X4 in the world. Apparently people care. Like us.
Yes, we live in a world where there is a 4X4 revolution on the go. If it's not the electric SUV revolution as recently seen between the Jaguars and Mercedes of the world, then it's another: The super-SUV revolution! You know, the Ferraris, Lambos and Porsches of the world.
Then, if it's not that, it's the uber-luxurious SUV revolution - you know, the Bentleys, the Karlmanns and Rolls Royces that take 5-star padding and squeeze it into a lifted and over-sized carrier.
But, then if it's none of those, it's this: Our favourite part of the revolution and the 4X4 race we care most about - the fastest 4X4 in the world, brought on by more superchargers and turbos than you have fingers!
Because yes people, apparently Lister are set to insert a death machine under the bonnet of an F-Pace, which will make it the fastest SUV in the world.
Speculation suggests that it could very well be a highly-tuned supercharged 5-litre V8 out of a Land Rover, and isn't that just the dandiest news? Lovely.
0-100kmn/h in 3.5 seconds is definitely not the fastest accelerating SUV in the world though by the way - a Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk by Hennessey would laugh - but apparently 322km/h top speed is. Well, how would we know? It's not like we are a car magazine or anything...
We just believe in the car Gods when they speak and question not.
Still, if it can achieve that number it will still sommer be another lister for my blister regardless - but this time SUV style bra, with the presence of an overpaid footballer. Indeed, paint Paul Pogba green and this is what he will look like, blonde touches and all.
Heck, we love Lister for one reason and one reason only. In a world that's turning electric, they still find it necessary to squeeze a thunderous V8 into a mommy van and smile. Now, that deserves respect brother. Companies like this won't last forever.
So enjoy it bro. Your grandson will never hear this roar.
