signed by an outside firm, Carrozzeria Touring of Italy, the firm more recognisably associated with the likes of Aston Martin, Lamborghini, Maserati and Alfa Romeo. The engine was a Chrysler V8, initially of 6276cc, with optional manual transmission, but the more common choice was the TorqueFlite automatic transmission, drive was via the rear wheels through a limited slip differential and a conventional Salisbury rear axle. The engine grew to 7212cc in late 1971 and it acquired 4-barrel carburation.
The Interceptor took its styling cues from the Brasinca Uirapuru, a little known Brazilian Coupé, but one that sported that distinctive large, curving wrap-around rear window that doubled up as a tailgate. The original specification included electric windows, reclining front seats, a wood rimmed steering wheel, a radio with twin speakers, reversing lights and an electric clock. Power steering was included as standard from September 1968.The Mark II Interceptor was announced in October 1969 with revised frontal styling and vented disc brakes, and shortly afterwards, in 1971, came the Mark III. It had revised seats, fully cast alloy wheels plus some other improvements.
According to the original factory delivery paperwork, this lovely example was first registered on 23rd December 1971 to Lord Robert Mercer Nairne of Wiltshire. A very expensive Christmas present! Factory build sheets detail the original specifications and part numbers. There are bills and receipts dating all the way back to 1980 detailing all expenditure on this very well looked after Jensen. There are MoT test certificates dating back to 1982, which appear to substantiate the mileage 31,000 miles from new.
The car has recently been completely repainted to a very high standard and recently re-trimmed in black leather with red piping. The vendor describes the car as: "stunning, the 6.3 litre engine provides plenty of power." Not to be confused with other inferior examples of the marque, this Jensen presents beautifully and has mechanical and structural prowess to boot. Offered at a most realistic reserve, if this car was offered in a retail environment, it may well be commanding a price tag of double the estimate today.
