British firm will engineer and develop new version of 1970s classic four-seat grand tourer
20 September 2011

An all-new version of the Jensen Interceptor will be unveiled late next year – and it will be engineered, developed and built by British specialist automotive group CPP.

Healey Sports Cars Switzerland, which owns the Jensen brand, has appointed CPP Global Holdings to develop a modern-day version of the Italian-styled, West Bromwich-built Interceptor grand tourer, which was built between 1966 and 1976.

The car will be a four-seat GT, like the original version. It will be based on an all-new aluminium chassis and handcrafted aluminium body.

Work on the design is said to be at an advanced stage. A team of Coventry-based design consultants employed by HSCS has completed the design. CPP will finalise the new Interceptor’s development in Coventry and manufacture it at a new production facility on Browns Lane from 2014. Last month CPP announced plans to build its new base at Browns Lane, which was the site of Jaguar production for several decades.

After the Interceptor has been revealed to the public in late 2012, deliveries to customers will begin in 2014. The car is intended to be "ultra-exclusive", so expect limited production numbers and a considerable pricetag.

Brendan O'Toole, founder and co-owner of CPP, said: "The Jensen design team has respected and honoured 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."

Liam Cardiff, director of Healey Sports Cars Switzerland, said: "CPP is the perfect partner to revive the iconic Jensen Interceptor. With the Jensen design team integrated into an organisation with much greater resources and broader expertise, our dream of seeing the Jensen and Interceptor badges once again adorning the bonnets of beautiful, modern, British-built GT cars has come closer to reality."
