CPP TO BUILD THE NEW JENSEN INTERCEPTOR
An all-new Jensen Interceptor will be launched next year, after CPP Global Holdings was
appointed to engineer, develop and build the new car by the brands’ owners, Healey Sports
Cars Switzerland Ltd (HSCS).
CPP, the British specialist automotive group, will finalise the new car’s development in Coventry
and manufacture it at a new production facility on Browns Lane from 2014. A team of
Coventry-based design consultants employed by HSCS has completed the design of the new
Interceptor, which has already gained significant customer interest.
The new Jensen Interceptor – echoing the four-seat grand tourer layout of the much-loved
original built between 1966 and 1976 – is based on an all-new aluminium chassis and
handcrafted aluminium body. The public unveiling of the Interceptor is planned for late 2012,
with deliveries to customers beginning in 2014. Annual production numbers and pricing are
yet to be confirmed, but will be fixed to ensure ultra-exclusivity. Expressions of interest can be
registered on the website www.jensensportscars.com.
Brendan O’Toole, founder and co-owner of CPP, said: “I started my career by restoring bodies
and components for classic British sports cars, so for CPP to take the lead role in reviving this
iconic brand is very exciting for the business, and for me personally. 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.
“This work is at an advanced stage, and married to CPP’s expert coachbuilding, craftsmanship
and engineering skills, the new Interceptor will be an exceptional example of British automotive
excellence,” he said.
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.”
