After having showed us a nice batch of car model screenshots of the upcoming GTRevival racing game, Straight4 CEO Ian Bell now shared a nice work-in-progress screen compilation, of the Lister Storm cockpit.
The Lister Storm GT is a homologated GT racing car manufactured by the British Lister automobile company. The production of the car started in 1993. The Lister Storm was designed by Geoff Kingston, who had previously worked on the Jaguar XJR-9 and XJR-11 Le Mans prototypes.
The car was based on a tubular steel chassis with a carbon fiber body. It was powered by a 7.0 L Jaguar V12 engine that produced 546 bhp and 583 lb-ft of torque. The Lister Storm was capable of accelerating from 0 to 60 mph in 4.1 seconds and had a top speed of 208 mph.
The Storm was a very successful racing car, winning numerous races in the British GT Championship and the FIA GT Championship. It also competed in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1995 and 1996 but failed to finish both races.
At the end of 2022, Ian Bell (SimBin, Blimey Games, and Slightly Mad Studios) announced that he founded a new studio branding named Straight4Games or just plain Straight4. The new company announced a Strategic Partnership with German-Austrian media publisher and distributor PLAION, (formerly Koch Media GmbH).
At this point, Straight4 had revealed they were working on a new racing simulation with the project name GTR Revival, now renamed to GTRevival which should become available for the PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S platforms.
