Made in Britain

The tasty new Jenson Interceptor will be launched next year and built by CPP Global Holdings in Britain.

The original Interceptor was produced between 1966 and 1976 and, like its updated cousin, is a four-seater GT car with a long, sleek bonnet.

The car will use an all-new aluminium chassis and will be unveiled to the public in late 2012, with the first models available to customers in 2014. We still don't know what the production numbers and pricing will be.

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,' added O'Toole.
