The Jensen Interceptor has been described as a 'rites of passage' classic car by Practical Classics magazine (http://www.practicalclassics.co.uk/). James Elliott, editor of Classic & Sports Car, (http://www.classicandsportscar.com/) acknowledged the same when he recently bought his metallic gold Jensen Interceptor Mk 1. The Interceptor also recently topped a reader's poll of best classics in Auto Trader magazine's Classics supplement.
With four seats, a large boot and powerful V8 engine, at its launch in 1966 the Interceptor was ideal for long-distance travel and continental touring. It found an immediate niche amongst businessmen and celebrities who wanted an alternative to a Rolls Royce or Aston Martin. It provided wheels for The Saint too - visit www.lesliecharteris.com for details. But by 1976 when Jensen closed its doors for good, the world had changed dramatically and the Interceptor was an anachronism.
Today the Jensen Interceptor has reached iconic status, not least thanks to its gorgeous styling – defined by its massive rear hatchback – and tremendous 7.2 litre engine.
Cropredy Bridge Garage has just announced production of the 'as new' Interceptor S. Only 50 will be available. For more details visit http://www.veight.web.com/.
