The Jensen Interceptor was a handmade sporting GT car, built in Great Britain by Jensen Motors between 1966 and 1976. Jensen was one of the first construction companies that equipped a production car with four-wheel-drive in 1967.Audi in turn, dismantled a Jensen FF in order to digest the related technology for its application to the Audi Quattro.
FWD was not Jensen’s FF only innovation, but ‘Dunlop’s’ ‘Maxaret’ system was already used in aviation being the forerunner of today’s ABS braking system.
This specific car was acquired by the Museum through auction in Great Britain.
