Cast your mind back to the late 60s the news a grim mixture of industrial strife and discord in the Middle East. No wonder we longed for an escape; and the cinema provided it. It was a world where supercars were celebrated and a Technicolor drive to the French Riviera in a massively powerful GT was the done thing.
So the stunning Interceptor stared in many films with its beautiful Touring of Milan styling and unique back window design.
The Interceptor was launched in 1966 as an up-to-date replacement for the fast-but-raw C-V8. Its all-steel body was as rigid as a monocoque and was a radical step for Jensen.
Sadly, the Interceptor – and Jensen in its initial incarnation after producing only 6,000 units – petered out in 1976. However, just like Mike Tyson, it wasn’t averse to the odd comeback: first during the 1980s and ’90s, and again in 2007. That’s a reflection of the popularity of the Interceptor, and proof that we’re all suckers for a healthy dose of escapism.
This beauty looks resplendent finished in original Yellow with black hide and is one of only 87 rhd UK supplied examples built
She was a factory demonstrator for a year, even used in television programmes and celebrity loans.
At a price of just under £10000 when new the convertible was a veritable bargain compared to the Rolls Corniche at £16000 !
She has enjoyed constant maintenance during the years all documented in the comprehensive history file and most Jensen specialists have been involved In the servicing inc Cropredy, Appleyard,Rejen etc.
Original build sheets and invoices are filed confirming original yellow colour and engine from new and mots are also documented
The condition today is a testament to their high quality of workmanship and she looks and drives extremely well
On the road she is more GT than sports car, but great fun in the country and effortless in the city. You’ll be amazed at how little it rolls in bends and how simple it is to accurately position – and, with a good-sized boot and rear seats, it’s a car you can enjoy every day. Fuel consumption aside.
For the money, there’s little to touch an Interceptor and they have been undervalued for years and the classic car pundits are predicting a great investment opportunity.
Supplied fully inspected, serviced and with a 1jen month comprehensive warranty.

A very rare incarnation of the Jensen Interceptor. The Jensen SP (for "Six Pack") has the distinction of being the most powerful car ever to have been made by Jensen Motors. Indeed, at the time of its release in August 1971, the SP was one of the most powerful road cars anywhere in the world. Its specification seemed t

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. A prototype was first shown at the October 1975 Earls Court Motor Show in London before financial receivers moved in, i
