Description

‘The only car that makes your mustache grow faster’. - Jeremy Clarkson

The Jensen Interceptor, a hand-built car from the Kelvin Way factory near Birmingham, is a name with history, with previous incarnations dating back to the 1950s, and is best known for its extraordinary coolness. What sets this car, the MKIII, apart is the evolution of materials. Jensen had long relied on fibreglass-reinforced plastic, resulting in cars that were almost impossible to restore. However, the Interceptor marked a return to a steel body, designed by Italy's Carrozzeria Touring. About the same as a shot of limoncello next to the Beef Wellington!

The Mark III Convertible, introduced in 1974, was actually intended purely for the US market to compete with the E-Type. This version came standard with GKN alloy wheels and air conditioning, as well as revised seats. The production year determined whether you got a G-, H-, or J-series. In 1971, the 7.2-litre replaced the 6.3-litre 383 ci engine. This is the 7.2-litre variant, and you can actually think of it as a British gentleman with rigid mood swings and a penchant for a very punishing Scotch!

Our ‘Gentleman's Express’ has recently received a careful dose of TLC. The car has been treated with great care to maintain the sheen of rust-free perfection. Originally delivered in Bahrain with many special features that we are only too happy to go over with you, this example is in exceptionally fine condition. She comes from a collection and is ready for the next owner.

Will we see you soon?
