First produced in 1950, the Jensen Motors, UK made Interceptor was launched as a Touring car with car parts coming from Austin and the body made by Italian coachbuilder, Vignale. They were made until 1957.
The brand Interceptor was subsequently revived after a gap of a decade and given a more powerful V8 6.3 litre engine (made by Chrysler). The designers provided the car with a unique wrap-around rear window that was curved and also served as a tailgate. With radio, reclining front seats, wood panelled steering wheel, electric windows, Jensen Motors understanding was that this model would take over sales of other competititive touring cars, but that didn't exactly happen so.
This third generation car, called the MK III (Mark 3) was launched in 1971, with a modified front grille design and came with a more powerful 7.2 litre engine. Over 4000 cars were produced, until 1976 before financial distress stopped the growth of Jensen Motors.
