The Jensen Interceptor is making its return thanks to CPP and Healey Sports Cars Switzerland.
CPP Global Holdings Limited is bringing back the Jensen Interceptor and has released some renderings as to what a modern version of the mid-60s to mid-70s sports car will look like. The rights to the Interceptor are held by Healey Sports Cars Switzerland, so they will solely be in charge of the order and volume produced. The automaker has released some information along with the renderings on the exterior design of the car. The coupe will be built on an aluminum chassis.
No information has been released on the interior or what will sit under the hood. The original Jenson Interceptor carried huge 6.3- or 7.2-liter 8-cyldiner engines. "CPP is the perfect partner to revive the iconic Jensen Interceptor. With the Jensen design team integrated into an organization with much greater resources and broader expertise, our dream of seeing the Jensen and Interceptor badges once again adorning the bonnets (hoods) of beautiful, modern, British-built GT cars has come closer to reality," said Director of Healey Sports Cars Switzerland, Liam Cardiff.
The original Interceptor was built between 1966 and 1976 and was retired after 6,408 units were produced. The companies have said that the new products will debut next year and the coupe could launch as soon as 2014 in Coventry, England at the CPP plant.
