To replace the Jensen C-V8, the British manufacturer Jensen Motors is moving towards a solution external to the company.
It entrusts the realization of the exterior design of the Interceptor to the Italian company Carrozzeria Touring and establishes a partnership with this company for the production of the bodywork.
To fulfill its commitment, Carrozzeria Touring is getting closer to Carrozzeria Vignale to secure the contract.
The delays grow and the quality does not follow, dissatisfied, Jensen finally repatriated the production of the Interceptor in England.
For the engine, Jensen chooses a V8 from Chrysler to equip his car.
Several versions delivering different powers will be offered for sale during the commercial life of the Interceptor.
The Mark II version is available for sale in October 1969, with a slightly revised style around headlights, grille, bumpers and taillights. The interior has been significantly upgraded to meet US regulations and the dashboard is redesigned. Air conditioning is optional.
