In­ter­cep­tor set to roar back to life

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

CLAS­SIC sports car the Jensen In­ter­cep­tor is to make a come­back, it has been an­nounced.

A new ver­sion of the much-loved mo­tor will be pro­duced on the site of one of the UK’s most fa­mous mo­tor plants.

Brit car com­pany CPP said it would en­gi­neer, de­velop and build the all-new Jensen ( above) at Jaguar’s former Browns Lane site in Coven­try. De­liv­er­ies to cus­tomers will start in 2014.

The In­ter­cep­tor was orig­i­nally built from 1966 to 1976. CPP said a team of Coven­try­based de­sign­ers em­ployed by the Jensen brand’s own­ers, Healey Sports Cars, had com­pleted the de­sign of the new car and has al­ready gained “sig­nif­i­cant cus­tomer in­ter­est”.

The pub­lic un­veil­ing of the In­ter­cep­tor is planned for late 2012, with an­nual pro­duc­tion numbers and pric­ing yet to be con­firmed.
