‘ You’ll love it deeply – but you’ll need deep pock­ets, too’

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling - RICHARD GUNN, SE­NIOR CON­TRIB­U­TOR

‘Beau­ti­ful and bru­tal in equal mea­sure, the In­ter­cep­tor is quite an ex­tra­or­di­nary ma­chine. It was an at­tempt to outdo the ex­cesses of other British man­u­fac­tur­ers, with a mon­ster of a V8 en­gine mated to vast Ital­ian coach­work and that won­der­fully dis­tinc­tive curved glass hatch. It’s im­pos­si­ble not be both be­guiled and in awe of such a ma­chine, whether it’s just stand­ing still or fully ex­er­cis­ing its com­ple­ment of horses. But be warned – while these cars may be more fi­nan­cially ac­ces­si­ble than they were when new, the fuel bills can be eye-wa­ter­ing. The in­evitable deep love will need to be ac­com­pa­nied by deep pock­ets.’
