CPP Global Holdings announced today that it will develop the all-new Jensen Interceptor! Apparently, the company was appointed by the brands’ owners, Healey Sports Cars Switzerland Ltd (HSCS), to build, engineer and develop the all-new car. According to CPP, the car will be developed in Coventry and will be launched next year. Moreover, the firm will manufacture it at a new production facility on Browns Lane from 2014.
For those who don’t know, the Jensen Interceptor, was built between 1966 and 1976, echoing the four-seat grand tourer layout. Its successor will be unveiled in 2012, while deliveries to customers will begin in 2014. CPP didn’t give us any details regarding annual production numbers and pricing, but if you are interested you can register on their website: 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."
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.”
