Modernized Jensen Interceptors

The Jensen Interceptor was always an object of lust for me. The brute Chrysler V8 heart in the Savile Row suit was the best of America and Great Britain together in one beautiful package. 

A UK based firm, Jensen International Automotive, is producing a thoroughly updated Interceptor using your donor car as a starting point. Called the Jensen Interceptor S, the car is given a complete restoration with some updates to the styling, body shell strengthening, new interior with significant material upgrades and modernization of the suspension system. The Chrysler V8 and automatic gearbox are replaced with a new GM-sourced 6.2 liter LS3 V8 engine with your choice of automatic or 6 speed manual gearbox. The 429 bhp lump will propel the modernized Jensen to claimed top speed of 160 mph. 

All of this gratification doesn't come cheaply: you'll need to place a suitcase containing £105,000 in the glasshouse boot of your donor Interceptor when you ship it to the folks at JIA..
