Watch our man get behind the wheel of the Ford Interceptor concept
23 July 2007

It’s big, it’s blue, it’s got a V8 engine raucous enough to make the ground shake, and Autocar has driven it; that’s Ford’s Interceptor concept, the American firm’s butch-looking saloon car shown at the Detroit motor show earlier this year. What’s more, you can watch news editor Dan Stevens pilot the two-tonne Ford around its Rouge factory, near Detroit, on video. Stevens travelled to the States last week to drive the Interceptor; watch his exclusive video report by clicking here.“This car holds the promise of a new future for Ford, “ writes Stevens, “it exists to show what the firm could do with a boldly styled rear-wheel drive saloon. And it makes a Chrysler 300C look, and sound, like a Morris Marina.”“So when is it going to be built? The answer could be sometime around 2011 or 2012, when it will also signal the arrival of a new Mustang coupe and a new family of rear-wheel drive cars.”

Driven this week

  • Citroën C3 Aircross
    First Drive
    17 October 2017
    It's got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
