The particular Jensen Interceptor is a grand touring car which was hand-built at the Kelvin Way Manufacturing plant in West Bromwich, near Birmingham in England, by Jensen Motors between 1966 and 1976. Typically the Interceptor name have been used previously by Jensen for the Jensen Interceptor made between 1950 and 1957 at the Carters Green manufacturing plant. Jensen had extensively used glass-reinforced plastic for the manufacturing of body solar panels in the previous two decades, but the new Interceptor saw a return to a steel body-shell. The body was designed by an outside firm, Carrozzeria Touring of Italia, rather than the in-house staff. Typically the early bodies were built in Malta by Vignale, before Jensen took creation internal, making some subtle body adjustments.
Jensen Motors used The chrysler V8 engines for the Interceptor, beginning with the 6276 cc (383 ci) with optional manual tranny (Mark I, only 22 built) or TorqueFlite computerized transmissions that drive the trunk wheels through a limited-slip differential in a Salisbury standard rear axle. Within 1970, the 383 c. i. produced 335 gross SAE hp, or 270 net SAE horsepower. Since this powerplant was out of tune by The chrysler for use on regular gasoline and produced only 250 net SAE hewlett packard four decades ago, Jensen select to use the Chrysler 440 in3 (7, 200 cc) engine for year 1971.
For 1971, two 440 c. i. Engines were offered. One had a 4-barrel carburetor and produced a 305-hp HIGHLY RESISTANT TO WEATHER CHANGES red. One other, which had three 2-cylinder carburettors and produced a net SAE power of 330 hp, was limited in 1971. Just 232 cars were made with the 440 “Six Pack”, and it experienced the distinction to be the most powerful car ever. ever before made. created by Jensen.
By 1972, the 440 chemical. i. Chrysler no longer created an engine with three 2-cylinder carburettors. The 440 c. i. The rest of the engine was out there of tune to 280 net SAE hp. Chrysler continuing to give a top-end 440 c. i. engine until 1976, when it only produced 255 internet SAE hp.
Typically the Interceptor might have borrowed some styling tips from the Brasinca Uirapuru,  with a distinctive large, bent wraparound rear windows that doubled as a tailgate. Typically the original specification incorporated power windows, reclining front seats, wood-trimmed steering wheel, radio stations with two audio speakers, reversing lights, and a power clock. Typically the power steering was included as standard from September late 1960s.
The Mark 2 was announced in October 1969, with slightly revised hair styling around the modified headlights, front grille, and bumper and taillights. The internal was substantially overhauled to comply with American regulations and air conditioning was an option.
Typically the Mark III, released in 1971, again modified the front grille, headlight finishes and fender treatment. It had GKN alloy wheels and ac as standard, and modified seats. It had been divided into G, L and J series in line with the year of production. The 6th. 3-liter 383ci powerplant was replaced by the 7. 2-liter 440ci in the year of 1971.
Jensen had recently been through tough times in 1975, as a result of then global recession and problems with his Jensen-Healey sports car. The organization was located in suspension of payments and the recipients allowed creation to continue until the available stock of parts was exhausted. Production of the Interceptor resulted in 1976.
Later, a team of traders operating under the new Jensen Automobiles Limited brand stepped in and relaunched production of the Interceptor from the 1970s, that has been briefly reintroduced back in the eighties as the Sequence 4 (S4), that has been an updated version of the original Interceptor. The V8 series provides new life to the Jensen brand and car production maintains. The car returned as a hand crafted and bespoke low-volume product, marketed much like Bristol, priced at £ 70, 1000. Even though the bodywork remained fundamentally the same as the last of the 3-Series main production run, the engine was obviously a much smaller 360-cubic-inch (5. 9-liter) engine supplied by Chrysler that used more modern settings to minimize emissions. fairly but still produced around 250bhp. In addition, the interior was slightly redesigned with the help of modern “sports” entrance seats as compared with to the chair style of previous models, as well as a modified instrument panel and electronics.
The then owner sold in 1990 to a engineering company that has been considered to be in a tougher position to develop the car; this lasted until 1993 with approximately 36 cars built, and although work commenced on the development of a new Series 5 Interceptor (S5) for the 1990s, the receivers were called in a second time and the company was liquidated.
The Japanese and Northern American markets, however some cars were brought in privately to other countries.
