A truly international effort; A British hand built, Italian styled, American powered V8 hot-rod.
Part of Jensen's charm was the exclusivity of their cars, but their manufacturing facilities and experience was also utilised by several of Britain’s major car companies at the time. With this understanding of build techniques supported by teams of craftsmen, the company were well placed for the international limelight when Jensen announced the new Interceptor in 1966. The Italian styled grand touring car was powered by the well-proven Chrysler V8 engines and was aimed at the very top of the automotive luxury car spectrum, with the Interceptor being one of the quicker 4 seater cars sold at the time.
This late Mk2 version is a restored example of a fairly short-lived variant, having been introduced in 1969 for just two years. Outwardly similarly to the previous model, it was sold with uprated brakes and suspension, as well as more kit and greater comfort. Powered by the 6.3-litre V8 engine, it soon became favoured by celebs over an Aston or E-type and placed it firmly as a practical quick car with restful driving manners.
Originally sold as a factory demonstrator car, this 1970 example also has the provenance of its build date documentation and early history thanks to the Jensen Owners Club archives. Tastefully finished in a modern 'Carmine Red', the practicality and relative simplicity of the V8 engine offers accessible servicing that could easily be maintained by any competent garage or DIY'er. This car has had the benefit of quality restoration and has been well protected against the elements in the process. Curiously undervalued against its rivals, this stunning example will not need bodywork and is ready for action.
