Launched in 1966, Jensen's incredibly innovative (and desperately complicated), four-wheel drive FF, was extremely expensive to produce and only sold in very small numbers. So, when Kjell Qvale took over Jensen in 1970, he decided to create a new, less costly and labour intensive flagship. As the Interceptors all came fitted with a big-block Chrysler engine, he simply chose to increase the power of the existing set up, using stock Chrysler components. In place of the standard 383 cu.in. engine, he chose the 10.3:1 compression ratio, 440 cu.in version and, to spice it up still further for this new top-of-the-range beast, he opted for the triple-twin-choke induction system (or 'Six-Pack', as it was known in the States). All these upgrades required no major modification to the existing Interceptor and so, the production cost increase was minimal. Stated power was up by over 85 bhp (though in reality, it was probably an even greater increase). This made the SP (Six-Pack) the most powerful Jensen ever produced and in fact, one of the most powerful cars in the world, at that time. Unfortunately, the early seventies fuel crisis and other economic factors meant that only 232 of these behem

1970 Jensen Interceptor II 6.3l Auto Finished in yellow with black leather interior 55,000 miles from new Only one recorded lady owner form new Supplied new by Jensen main agent Newbury Motors Ltd of Halesowen on 22 October 1970. Incredibly this stunning motor car has had only one registered owner since, a local lady who along with her husband completely and utterly cosseted and cherished her. Since arriving with us we have commissioned a full strip-down and bare metal repaint at our trusted prize winning body-shop due to age related marks and imperfections. When stripped back the body was found to be in remarkable order, just as we expected. We also had some brightwork refinished, again not due to damage but minor age related fading, which we wanted perfected. Needles to say the re-fit included many new parts and new seals were used throughout. The results to this lengthy but sympathetic restoration are simply stunning. We have also given it a thorough mechanical check-over & service and can confirm she drives superbly. This beautiful example comes complete with original service book, owners handbook, factory build sheets, original toolkit and a file of old MOT’s and invoices. Thi
1976 Jensen Interceptor III Convertible The iconic Jensen Interceptor is a highly regarded British sporting GT-class motor car. These stunning cars were hand-built at the Kelvin Way Factory in West Bromwich England by Jensen Motors between 1966 and 1976. The Interceptor name had been used previously by Jensen for the Jensen Interceptor made between 1950 and 1957 at the Carters Green factory. Jensen had extensively used glass-reinforced plastic for the fabrication of body panels in the preceding two decades, but the new Interceptor saw a return to a steel body-shell. The body was designed by an outside firm, Carrozzeria Touring of Italy, rather than the in-house staff. The early bodies were built in Italy by Vignale, before Jensen took production in house, making some subtle body modifications. The Interceptor Mark III is probably the most widely known and recognized Jensen found on roads today. In its final form, the Interceptor III represented the pinnacle of Jensen car development. For those thinking about buying a Jensen today, these cars epitomise what Jensen motoring was all about. The Mark III was first introduced in 1971, with a revised front grille, headlamp finishers and bumper treatment. It had GKN alloy wheels and air conditioning as standard, and revised seats too. The 6.3 litre 383ci engine was superseded by the 7.2 litre 440ci in 1971 delivering a new range of torque and power. This magnificent Jensen Interceptor III Convertible is finished in Platinum Silver metallic with Black hide upholstery and complemented with a Black mohair soft top. From the private garage of a Gentleman collector, this exceptional car has been the subject of meticulous attention during his long ownership with invoices amounting up towards a six figure sum throughout its cherished life and remains today in a state of road readiness for everyday driving or some serious continental touring. Available for viewing in our Kew showroom.
