Specification - Data sheet

LISTER BELL AUTOMOTIVE STR-M Specification / Data sheet


Torsionally rigid CAD designed spaceframe chassis adapted to accept Ferrari V6 from a Ferrari Mondial
Folded mild steel sheet sections and tubular section steel
Full integral roll cage built to RAC blue book specification
Opional powder coating


Ferrari V8 engine from either the 3.0 or 3.2 Phase 1 or 2 Mondial

Exhaust system

Standard Ferrari exhaust manifolds mated to bespoke silencer system.


The suspension is sourced from the Mondial donor car & utilises the wishbones and uprights at the front whilst at the rear uses the whole Mondial subframe complete with wishbones, uprights and drive shafts.
New adjustable dampers and springs to account for the reduced weight of the STR-M over the original car.


The original Mondial steering column is retained and can be connected to the standard Mondial rack but Lister Bell recommend using a custom built steering rack with a quicker ratio which is more suited to the short wheelbase and nature of the STR-M.


The braking system utilises the discs, calipers and brake servo from the Mondial mated to a custom built pedal box.


Due to the increased rear track of the Mondial the STR-M is only available in Group 4 body styles, the body work is available in high standard pre-coloured gelcoat finish.
The usual GP4 additions are also available e.g. light pods, roof scoop, GP4 dash board etc


Due to the difference in the front & rear track of the Mondial suspension over the normal Stratos Lister Bell recommend using Lister Bell coffin spoke wheels in 16" front and 17" rear format to suit the car. They have developed a rear wheel which suits the wider rear track of the Mondial but still retains the detail and appearance of the original Stratos wheel.


The Mondial radiator and fan assembly can be retained with a small modification, alternatively a custom built aluminium radiator with twin fan arrangement can be used.


Interior ventilation is provided by either a heater blower unit or by a full air conditioning system.
