The newly formed Jensen Group has revealed a clay model of a Jensen GT, a bridging model between the original Interceptor and a new Interceptor II in 2016.
There have been numerous attempts to give new life to Jensen cars over the years, but the newly formed Jensen Group look set to do things properly, with a new Jensen Interceptor II planned for 2016.
The new Jensen Group – led by former AML man Tim Hearley – has started work on the Jensen GT (a clay model of it is pictured above and below) which they see as a bridging car between the last real Interceptor in the 1970s and an all-new Interceptor II planned for 2016.
The GT will be built in small numbers, subject to demand, under an agreement between the Jensen Group and Jensen International Automotive (JIA) which built the modified Interceptor R models and will sell the GT.
All this is a prequel to the all new Interceptor II in 2016, a car that will take design cues from the original Interceptor, will probably involve an established motor group in its creation, and is set to offer a ‘modern and exciting’ car.
Tim Hearley said:
This represents the next chapter of Jensen and, as we look to the future, we want Jensen enthusiasts to help us celebrate as we unveil a completely new car and outline our plans for the future.
It’s an interesting project, and if the new Jensen Group can actually build a modern and dynamic GT properly (unlike the original Interceptors), and is properly funded, the new Interceptor II – and the interim Jensen GT – could be very appealing.
