14. Jensen Interceptor FF
One of the best British Gran Turismo cars ever built was the Jensen Interceptor. It had Italian styling by Vignale and provided great comfort. Thanks to the powerful Chrysler 383 or 440 V8 engine in the front, this four-seater coupe was one of the fastest, most comfortable cars for crossing continents in the late ’60s and early ’70s.
All Interceptors featured Chrysler engines, but the best and most influential version was the Interceptor FF. The “FF” part of the name came from the Ferguson Formula. They equipped this model with all-wheel drive and an early form of ABS brakes. In 1966, this was space-age technology.
They sourced the power from a 383 V8 engine, although there were coupe prototypes with a 426 Hemi. But because the Interceptor FF was too expensive, Jensen only managed to sell 320 fastbacks. However, the regular Interceptors in coupe and convertible form were much more successful. Jenson built over 6,400 until 1976, selling many in America.
