The Jensen FF-R is the ultimate version on the reborn Jensen Intercepter produced by Jensen International Automotive. Powered by GM's LSA Supercharged 6.2litre V8, which produces 556bhp and 551lb ft of torque, this original 1968 Jensen FF now has the power to see off many of today's so call sports cars. But could you live with it every day? Watch this video to find out more!

I`ve only ever seen one Interceptor and oddly that was in Johannesburg... This is beautiful though!

I am producing what amounts to exactly the same kind of resto-mod to my 1968 Aston Martin DBS. But when a company does this (see also Singer to 911, Helm E-Type etc.) they can attach a huge price tag. When an individual creates such a car they are hated by the rest of the owners of that marque because they have 'ruined' and 'destroyed' a precious car by taking it away from original spec. Harry, If you would like to see (and test) a supercharged 4l DBS with all mod cons (when I've finished it in a couple of years) completed to as high a standard as that Jenson, then let me know...

151 viewers out of 12k (at this writing) don't like this video. Harry here is an absolute pro, but it seems that no matter what the subject and no matter how smart and skilled the presentation, there is always this small percentage on BGcd that gives a thumbs down to everything. Strange.

My mate had a red Lamborghini espada in the late seventies it was like a howling banshee when it was on song, his mate had a Jensen interceptor FF bright orange if I remember right guys surname was Davidson he was a right unit. They used to waterski at stewartby lakes a few of them were motor dealers one ran wide barefooting and hit the bank and ended up in hospital when my mate woosti went to visit him his chest was bandaged up he said did you do that when you hit the bank as he was unconscious at the time, he said did I fuck it was that lunatic Davidson thumpin me chest trying to get me going again 😂

£7000 new in 1969 wow, all that money restoring it and it still has just one crappy totally inadequate bonnet catch which twists the bonnet as it strains to hold it up, two hydraulic ones would have been more suitable.

Thanks for the great review of the FF-R. My Dad owned a white Interceptor FF in the 70’s, it was such a beautiful car to ride in. The 8 track stereo sounded good but not as good as that 6.3ltr Chrysler V8. Then petrol prices went nuts in the 70’s and at 12 miles per gallon, my Dad had to let it go.

JIA should be ashamed for what they've done here. The ONLY replacement acceptable for the MoPaR heart, is a HellCrate. Holley Carburetors? You jest surely with a mistake like that. Jensen used the 'factory' supplied Carter Carburetors. - www.jensenmuseum.org/dear-diary/carburettor/ And then "7 litre",..nup. 383 is 6.3, 440 is 7.2. Interceptors never got the 7 litre "426 Hemi", all the engines were the B/RB Wedge head Big Block.

I don’t have that kind of money....but actually for what it looks like and what it can do, I was expecting it to cost far more! I’d far rather have that than some of the much more expensive modern day super cars.

Gotta say, if I'd just spent 300k pounds on that conversion, I wouldn't be happy. Vacuum leak from the climate control under the dash, poorly upholstered rear seat (those diagonal creases in the pleating are where the tensions were not kept correct when sewing in the pleating), gaudy, out of place shifter. For 300k pounds, I think they could possibly have stretched to having a more suitable shifter made up, among other things. The body work is also far from what I'd call the straightest as well. Yes, it's a lovely job, but it's not really a modern daily driver if it already has issues like climate control failures. You expect that not to exist on a modernised vehicle. If I picked up all of that just watching a 20min BGcd video, I'd hate to see what they look like in person....

It has damaged the car from being original sadly. the front has had modifications the length so much is different even spare wheel is wrong as it was full sized like they all should be NOW in all cars. As for over heating that was not the case it was like the Triumph stage water problems when filled up incorrectly caused the pump to stop working with air bubbles the breaking system is different. The Original one had an older type of what they call ABS . If they wanted to make it modern why not build a modern version as that is a lot of money so spend on a none standard Jenson that is NOT a real FF. Time Jenson re made the cars rather than harm original ones like that. .

A Pure Classic Harry, My Personnel Favorite Car Of All Time. I Wish They Would Bring Them Back. And PLEASE Tell Them The Jensen Interceptor FF Was The FIRST 4WD Production Car In The World ( 1968/69)
tecdessus преди месец
Not the first 4WD car but perhaps the first non off roader, also had Maxaret anti lock brakes, I´m thinking 1966, certainly many years before the Audi Quattro. There were also some Fords fitted with the Ferguson Formula system, Capri´s and Zodiac´s I think.

Harry I'm a avid fan of your reviews appreciating your comprehensive informative, captivating style of delivery , compared with your peers it's rather soothing laid backed, yet remarkably manages to pack a heavyweight punch of a scholar in this crowded domain. Now I must get to the point of entry in this comment section. Firstly thank goodness for the Lamborghini Contach you own which I'm sure can be the wield of a dangerous drive if pushed without the required skill. Seeing you put the Jenson into manual pressing the accelerator to unleash power that had you grappling with the steering wheel visibly shocked, mildly disorientated, calling on all your supercar experience to make sense of the humongous beastly delivery pushing to a short-lengthed horizon was priceless and forgive me had me bellowing with laughter as your comments thereafter clearly denoted a sense of relief and suggestions how refinements might be integrated into this otherwise pleasant to look at package added further entertainment. You're a gentleman and probably the best automotive reviewer on BGcd.

Rewatching this one again it came to me to ask you Harry, could you get a Bristol in one day for review? Something from the seventies or later as they are more refined and interesting I think that the early ones. I never forget being at the motor show the year the Lagonda was launched ( which by the way is another request!) but the one that got me was a Bristol, for some reason that walnut interior with the braided rope handle to open the glovebox has stuck with me for over forty years!

Chevrolet engines have no history powering Interceptors, there should be a Mopar engine under the hood, as was in the car originally. There are many current Dodge engines, and ZF 8 speed transmissions, available that would be just as suitable and less incongruous.

Ooo la la, now this is special. Ok may be it cost £300k + but it looks like a million dollars and that's before it turns a wheel. Keep your Ferraris and transformer Lambo's designed by some kid with acne. The Jenson is class, now this is what you call a 'car'. Sounds terrific too. The view of the rear as it takes the corners looks very sexy indeed. And following behind a classic Jaguar, how apposite! Thanks for providing the pictures of the underside and suspension and the well placed camera angles. Another intelligent and comprehensive review. Noticed you were looking very debonair, almost 007esque in your dark slim fitting outfit. I feel the Jensen warranted the effort sir, so glad you didn't wear jeans for this one!....Just need to find me £300k now!

Friend of mine bought a Sunbeam Tiger retro mod , beautifuly crafted and modern engineering into an Alpine body He paid over £100k for it from a bereavement sale and some build documents with the car were missing but he had the log book . after a year , the gearbox started to play up and the clutch went bang . The original builders had gone to the wall and my friend went to the sunbeam dealers who obviously couldn't sort the spare parts cos no idea where they came from and since many parts were hand made to fit , my friend had no choice but to try and convert the car back to 1966 spec which is where he discovered the original builders had butchered the engine bay and gearbox tunnel to get whatever contraption it was installed and my friend had an astronomical bill to re convert back to the cars proper spec before all the new original bits could be re installed . In the end his wife put her foot down and the car was sold for spares or repair No use to man nor dog The moral of this sad story NEVER EVER BUY A CAR THAT DEVIATES FROM THE MAKERS APPROVED SPEC This Jensen will end up the same way , documents will get mislaid or builders go belly up and suddenly you got an Interceptor that you cant drive, cant sell and cant repair .
