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 fact that Jensen had. in
the space of a year. produced two completely new models was also
outstanding. particularly as the two companies involved in the
project were 680 miles apart. 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. The Interceptor took its styling
cues from the Brasinca Uirapuru with a distinctive large. curved
wrap-around rear window that doubled as a tailgate. The original
specification included electric windows. reclining front seats. a
wood rimmed steering wheel. radio with twin speakers. reversing
lights and an electric clock. 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 4-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.

OPK 246L was manufactured on 17th November 1972 and was supplied
by Guy Salmon at Thames Ditton to the original owner on 7th
February 1973. This splendid Jensen is finished in the original
colour combination of yellow coachwork with black trim and black
carpets; on the statement of origin from Jensen it confirms the
black vinyl roof as an original special feature. Benefitting from a
full length sunroof of the period. the fastidious vendor has
recently spent over £3. 00 on the engine. This rare SP model has
righthand drive steering and automatic transmission and is supplied
with a current MoT test certificate. V5 registration document and
road fund licence. 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 and more powerful
SP example. makes it an even more desirable proposition.
