Jensen Interceptor FF
One of the best British Gran Turismo cars they ever built was the Jensen Interceptor. The car has Italian styling by Vignale and is massive in size for great comfort. Also, they installed a powerful Chrysler 383 or 440 V8 engine in the front. So, 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 influential version was the Interceptor FF. The latter part of the name comes from Ferguson Formula and meant they equipped this model with all-wheel drive and an early form of ABS brakes. And in 1966, this was space age technology. They sourced the power from a 383 V8 although there were some coupe prototypes with the 426 Hemi.
The Interceptor FF was too expensive, so Jensen only managed to sell 320 of them. However, regular Interceptors in coupe and convertible form were much more successful. As a result, they built over 6,400 until 1976, selling many of them in America.
