The Jensen Interceptor was first shown at
the October 1966 Earls Court Motor Show alongside the technically
advanced four-wheel drive FF; the Touring of Milan designed Interceptor was
quite a sensation and received much praise. The original design
penned by Touring of Milan was taken to
Vignale of Turin who had the capability to
produce the car in much higher numbers than Touring. Fully trimmed and painted body shells
were delivered from Italy for assembly at West Bromwich by October
1966. Power steering was included as standard from September 1968.
The Mk. II was announced in October 1969 featuring revised frontal
styling and vented disc brakes. The Mk. III of 1971 had revised
seats. fully-cast alloy wheels plus other minor improvements. The
engine was a Chrysler V8 unit initially presented with a
displacement of 6276cc with a TorqueFlite automatic transmission.
The engine size was then increased to 7212cc in late 1971 with
four-bbl carburettors. The SP (Six-Pack) model of 1971-73 offered
3x2-bbl carburettors. Only 232 were manufactured making it the most
powerful car ever to have been constructed by Jensen with a claimed
390bhp available.

According to the statement of origin from
Jensen. this Interceptor was manufactured in November 1972 and was
sold by Guy Salmon at Thames Ditton to the original owner on
7th
February 1973. Finished in its
original colour combination of yellow coachwork with black leather
trim and a black vinyl roof. this Jensen presents in excellent
condition. Benefitting from a full length sunroof of the period. br/>the fastidious vendor has recently spent over £3. 00 on the engine.
This rare SP model is fitted with automatic transmission and the
six-pack carburettors have been removed in favour of a twin Weber
arrangement. Supplied with a V5 registration document and a full
years' MoT test certificate. together with a file showing some
recent invoices; when one considers the value of the Interceptor's
contemporaries. it is very clear that this model offers superb
value for money and. being a late SP example. makes it an even
more desirable proposition.
