Jensen Interceptor is to make a comeback
A new-look Jensen Interceptor – an updated version of the iconic West Midland sports car – is due to return to the roads next year.
The GT will be unveiled in 2012 and will be built in the West Midlands from 2014 after CPP Global Holdings was appointed to engineer, develop and build the new car by the brand’s owners, Healey Sports Cars Switzerland Ltd (HSCS).

While the original Interceptor was built in West Bromwich between 1966 and 1976, CPP, which owns the Spyker brand, will concentrate its operation in Coventry.
The British specialist automotive group will manufacture the car at the former Jaguar production facility at Browns Lane.
A team of Coventry-based design consultants has completed the design of the new Interceptor and it is already attracting “significant customer interest”.
The new Jensen Interceptor – echoing the four-seat grand tourer layout of the much-loved original – is based on an all-new aluminium chassis and handcrafted aluminium body.
