On tonight’s Top Gear Jeremy Clarkson took a look at a modern remake of the Jensen Interceptor. Using a GM 6.2L V8 the new Interceptor generates over 400 bhp, does 0-60 in 4.5 seconds and will go on to a top speed of 160 mph.

There can be no doubt performance is massively improved, although I wasn’t convinced on the sound. The video below shows an original Jensen Interceptor, complete with 7.2L V8. Even at tick-over, you could easily mistake an Interceptor for God clearing his throat (probably a Jeremy Clarkson quote):

Buy the Jenson Interceptor 6.2L V8 or 7.2L V8

If you’re looking to buy a Jenson Interceptor, you can find the original on eBay from under £6,000. Yes, a Fiat Panda is going to be more efficient on the daily school run but… didn’t you watch the video?

Alternatively, Jensen Cars will sell you the remake for £110,000. Whilst it might not sound quite as brutal, it more than makes up for that in the looks department….

I’m sure you will agree that the new Jensen Interceptor is absolutely astonishing to look at. The car is due to be revealed to the public late in 2012 with deliveries commencing early in 2014.

  1. This is currently one of the most visited pages on my website.

    I can only assume people have been watching this year’s Top Gear DVD, which features the Jenson Interceptor in a “best car noises” challenge.

    I stand by my opinion that the original sounded far better than the remake, although I’m sure a custom exhaust would fix that.
