Model Interceptor III
"With a power output like this in a car weighing 33cwt unladen, the results of pressing the accelerator are pretty electrifying to say the least," wrote Autocar in its first test of the MkII, recording a 0-60 time of 6.4 secs on the way to a top speed of 137mph. "With all that torque on tap and such excellent brakes willing to take any punishment, there are no problems getting along very fast indeed." First registered in October 1972, this particular MkIII looks particularly attractive in Silver over Grey with a nice original red leather interior. It has covered just 52,000 miles from new in the hands of six keepers to date, the third and fourth owners keeping it for some 15 years each. Appearing to be an exceptionally sound and original example with notably good panel gaps, it even retains the original 8-track stereo system. More recently fitted with a new Holley carburettor, a new battery and four new tyres, it also benefits from stainless steel exhausts, a high-torque starter motor and air conditioning. It comes with many old MOTs back to 1977 (at 39,674 miles), plenty of bills to show regular routine maintenance and documents showing that it was loaned to the BBC's Top Gear programme in 1994. The car is said to drive very well indeed and certainly fired up promptly and ran very smoothly as we manoeuvred it to take these photos. These really are fabulous GT cars that every petrol-head should own at least once in their lives. View 1972 Jensen Interceptor III For Sale on Coys.co.uk for further details.

Rare among the Interceptor variants and Jensen's swansong for the 70's at least. The Coupés are a largely unknown type and many people who might know a bit about Jensens have never actually seen one.
