1973 JENSEN INTERCEPTOR – 48,000 MILES – SOLD
Cast your mind back to the late 60s the news a grim mixture of industrial strife and discord in the Middle East. No wonder we longed for an escape, and the cinema provided it. It was a world where supercars were celebrated and a Technicolor drive to the French Riviera in a massively powerful GT was the done thing.
So the stunning Interceptor stared in many films with its beautiful Touring of Milan styling and unique back window design.
The Interceptor was launched in 1966 as an up-to-date replacement for the fast-but-raw C-V8. Its all-steel body was as rigid as a monocoque and was a radical step for Jensen.
Sadly, the Interceptor – and Jensen in its initial incarnation after producing only 6,000 units – petered out in 1976. However, just like Mike Tyson, it wasn’t averse to the odd comeback: first during the 1980s and ’90s, and again in 2007. That’s a reflection of the popularity of the Interceptor, and proof that we’re all suckers for a healthy dose of escapism.
