Originally commissioned for Sir Charles Dunstone, the main shareholder of Jensen International Automotive, the car's build was undertaken without regard to expense and this Interceptor was used extensively for media duties, having featured favourably in the Times, The Grand Tour, Top Gear aswell as in factory media material.
Finished to R specification as per the factory brochure, the only deviations from standard specification are:
- Replacement of the hood with with a Lynx version which comes with electic opposed to manual catches - a very rare and desiraabale feature
- Conversion to single windscreen wiper - as fitted to supercharged models today
Always cherished and maintained regardless of expense, the car has been scarcely used since it's build, in fact it is suspected that the majority of use was undertaken by the company's marketing manager when performing media duties.
Offered today in as new condition - this Jensen Interceptor R convertible is probably the best known example in existence and provides the next custodian with a car in as new condition without the 6-12 months build wait.
