Lord March’s driveway is seeing its fare share of action today, and not all of it is joyful. Earlier we showed you what happens when a NASCAR Toyota Tundra understeers a bit too far. Now you get to see the end result of a four-wheel lockup in a 1958 Lister-Jaguar.
(And click past the jump for a bonus video from the original Race of Two Worlds)
The car is called Monzanapolis, and it’s a unique marriage of Lister bits and Jaguar power. Under the aluminum skin sits a 3.8-liter engine plucked from a D-Type, while most of the rest of the car is Lister. It was built to compete in the Indy Car vs F1 race known as Monzanapolis, or the Race of Two Worlds.
How’d the car fare when it raced in 1958? Not great… the American Indy racers prevailed both years the event was held. Want to see footage from the race? Of course you do! Check this out:
While at Goodwood, the car was running up the hill where it got a bit squirrelly under braking. This was near Turn 5 or Turn 6. From there, the car plowed on into the hay bales, and received revised bodywork in the process.
The driver extricated the car and pressed on towards the finish line. Where we assume an awful conversation awaits, unless the car was being pedaled by its owner. In which case, good on you for driving the thing hard.
Hopefully you know a good aluminum shop…
