CPP Jensen Interceptor
CPP has announced that it will produce a modern version of the Jensen Interceptor, expected to be presented as a concept in 2012 and to go on sale in 2014.
British automotive group CPP has been commissioned to finalize the development of the all-new Jensen Interceptor by HSCS – Healey Sports Cars Switzerland Ltd), owner of the brand’s assets and intellectual property.
The design of the sportscar was created by a team of Coventry-based design consultants employed by HSCS, while the development will be completed at CPP’s new production facility in Coventry.
The new Jensen Interceptor will be based on an all-new aluminum chassis and handcrafted aluminum body.
The car echoes the four-seat grand tourer layout of the original model, which was built between 1966 and 1976 and featured a V8 powertrain and technologies quite advanced for the time, including all-wheel drive, ABS and traction control.
Brendan O’Toole, founder and co-owner of CPP, commented: “The Jensen design team has respected and honored the great heritage and attributes of the original Interceptor, while injecting a contemporary edge and advanced technologies that will ensure it appeals to the passionate, discerning motoring enthusiast of today.”
