Interceptor set to roar back to life
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.
