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 to turn back the hands of time because in 1971 Mopar engines had been reduced in compression ratio and power output to the point where they were mere shadows of their former selves. Paradoxically, at the very time Jensens started manufacturing the SP, it was illegal for Chrysler to put the Six-Pack engine into a new car in the United States. Six-Packs were listed briefly in the Mopar catalogs for 1972 but were deleted immediately after the engine failed its emissions test. Jensens had bought up their stock of engines at the end of the production run so, by the time the SP was in production, it was no longer possible to market the car in the States. Our particular example has covered just 63000 from new.

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

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
