Launched in London at the 1966 Motor Show, the Jensen Interceptor marked a significant change in styling from previous models, with coachwork designed by Vignale in Italy. Continuing to be hand-built, the bodywork was now in steel, with a large parallel-tube chassis, using a live leaf-sprung rear axle and Panhard rod, all-round disc brakes and independent wishbone and coil sprung front suspension. This high performance coupe had around 280bhp (DIN) on tap from Chrysler's 6276cc V8, with their Torqueflite automatic transmission as standard equipment for the Interceptor model. Any sixties car achieving 100mph in under 20 seconds was regarded as a performance car, The Motor recording the Interceptor's top speed at 140mph, with 100mph coming up in just 19 seconds. The prestigious 'FF' was nearly 50% more expensive than the standard Jensen Interceptor, and is identified by the twin side grilles on the front wings. Available only with automatic transmission, the 'FF' featured the 'Ferguson Formula' four wheel drive system, and included the revolutionary Dunlop 'Maxeret' anti-skid braking system, which combined to produce a supercar over ten years ahead of its time.
