1960 ja 1970 -luku oli kiistatta Gran Turismo -superautojen kulta-aikaa. Kuninkaallisena käsityönä valmistetun, hienoimman Gran Turismon tittelistä taistelivat 1960-luvun lopussa erityisesti kaksi autoa: Aston Martin DBS V8 ja Jensen Interceptor.


Aston Martin oli niittänyt mainetta autourheilussa aina 1930 -luvun alun Le Mans -kilpailuista lähtien. Se oli tunnettu myös elokuvista salaisen agentin tyylikkäänä työkaluna. Siksi oli lähes käsittämätöntä, että pieni, Länsi-Bromwichistä lähtöisin oleva Jensen pystyi toteuttamaan ylellisen Gran Turismo -superauton, jota vertailtiin autolehdissä Astonin kanssa rinta rinnan kehuen. Mutta ei lainkaan syyttä. Myöskään Jensen ei epäillyt hyödyntää Interceptorin markkinoinnissa kuuluisia asiakkaita, jotka halusivat kalliin ja eksklusiivisen GT-Superauton: Prinsessa Anne, Donna Summer, Dusty Springfield, Tony Curtis, Henry Cooper, Cliff Richard…


Jensenin veljekset Allan ja Richard Jensen alkoivat vuonna 1922 suunnittelemaan ja valmistamaan urheilu- ja hyötyajoneuvojen koreja. Ennen toista maailmansotaa, Jensen oli suunnitellut peräti 65 erilaista urheiluautoa, joista useissa voimanlähteenä oli Fordin V8. Vuonna 1962 Jensen esitteli C-V8 Gran Turismo -urheiluauton, joka oli yksi aikansa nopeimmista nelipaikkaisista autoista.


Vuonna 1966 Jensen esitteli Gran Turismo -superauton, jonka oli muotoillut Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera. Auto sai autohistorian yhden hienoimmista mallinimistä, jota Jensen oli jo käyttänyt kertaalleen aikaisemmin 1950-luvulla: Interceptor. Touring oli tunnettu niin Ferrareiden, Lamborghinien kuin Maseratinkin muotoilijana. Niin ikään se oli muotoillut Aston Martinin lisenssin alla DB4:n, DB5:n kuin DB6:n ja tiesi millainen sulavalinjaisen ja nopean GT-auton tuli olla. Interceptorin upean muotoilun mahdollisti yhtenäinen teräskori, joka oli suunniteltu erilliselle alustan putkirungolle. Ensimmäiset Interceptorin korit valmisti Italiassa koritehdas Vignale, mutta pian Jensen alkoi valmistamaan Interceptorin korit itse.


Jensen Motors valitsi Interceptorin voimanlähteeksi 6,3 litraisen Chryslerin 383 V8 -moottorin. Teholukemat olivat vaikuttava 325 hevosvoimaa, jotka välittyivät tiehen lukkoperällä varustetun jäykän taka-akselin ja Torqueflite -automaattivaihteiston, tai nelivaihteisen manuaalivaihteiston välityksellä. ”While Aston owners revved their race-bred straight sixes and crunched gears, Jensen man could surge away from any situation at twitch of a toe with this Black-Country supercar, surging past 100 mp/h in the time it took the light in Montecristo”, kirjoitti CL Magazine Jensenistä 29.11.2001.


Interceptor oli menestys ja sitä valmistettiin kolmen mallisarjan ja kymmenen vuoden ajan 1966-1976, yhteensä 7141 kappaletta, nelivetoisen FF -erikoismallin, avokorimallit ja SP-erikoismallin mukaan lukien. Kolmesta mallisarjasta harvinaisin on MKI, jota valmistettiin ainoastaan 1024 kappaletta.


Tämän vuosimallin 1967 Interceptor MKI:n toi Suomeen Suomen Sijoitusautot vuonna 1993 Englannista. Auto oli säilynyt hyvässä alkuperäiskunnossa, mutta se päätettiin silti entisöidä perusteellisesti. Auton osti 24.09.1996 Koskisen -puutuoteteollisuusyrityksen johtaja K. Koskinen. Auton entisöinti oltiin ehditty aloittaa ja sitä jatkettiin Koskisen omistusaikana.


Vuosien 1994-1998 aikana auto entisöintikunnostettiin perusteellisesti ammattilaisilla. Auton kori kunnostettiin ja maalattiin Jensenin viininpunaisen metallihohdon sävyyn. Auton moottori koneistettiin ja kunnostettiin uusilla osilla. Vaihteisto ja taka-akselisto purettiin ja kunnostettiin. Pakosarjat, pakoputkisto, jarrut, apulaitteet ja ohjauksen kuluvat osat uusittiin. Sähkölaitteet, kuten sähköikkunat ja radio kunnostettiin.


Jensen tuli meille K.Koskisen kuolinpesältä keväällä 2022. Autolla oli entisöinnin jälkeen ajettu noin 5000 kilometriä. Autoa oltiin säilytetty lämpimässä tallissa ja sen kori oli edelleen todella hyvässä kunnossa, mutta etulattioissa oli pieniä ruostevaurioita. Lattiat uusittiin alkuperäisten mittojen ja mallien mukaisesti. Korin pienet virheet kunnostettiin ja maalattiin. Auton moottori ja vaihteisto huollettiin ja säädettiin sekä sytytyksen osat ja vesipumppu uusittiin.


Auton V8 -moottori käy todella tasaisesti ja jylhä voima sekä vääntö ovat tallella. Vaihteisto toimii erittäin pehmeästi ja napakasti. Kaikki auton sähkölaitteet toimivat hienosti.


Auton vaalea nahkaverhoilu viininpunaisin seeteri-tikkauksin on upeassa kunnossa. Myös kattoverhoilu ja pienet yksityiskohdat, kuten nupit, kahvat ja alkuperäinen puinen ohjauspyörä ovat upeassa kunnossa.


Erittäin harvinainen Gran Turismo -superauto ja poikkeuksellisen hieno yksilö. Koskinen oli todellinen Jensen-fani ja auton mukana on säilynyt runsaasti paitsi entisöinti, huolto- ja korjausdokumentteja, myös Jensen-aiheisia lehtiartikkeleita eri vuosikymmeniltä.


Auto on rekisteröity museoajoneuvoksi ja katsastus on voimassa heinäkuuhun 2024 saakka.


Auto sijaitsee Vantaalla. Esittelyt sopimuksen mukaan.

The 1960s and 1970s were undeniably the golden age of Gran Turismo supercars. At the end of the 1960s, two cars in particular fought for the title of the finest Gran Turismo, produced by royal craftsmanship: the Aston Martin DBS V8 and the Jensen Interceptor.


Aston Martin had been making a name for itself in motorsport ever since the Le Mans races of the early 1930s. It was also known from the movies as a stylish tool of a secret agent. That's why it was almost unfathomable that the little Jensen from West Bromwich was able to realize a luxurious Gran Turismo supercar that was compared with Aston side by side in the car magazines. But no excuse at all. Also, Jensen did not doubt to use that in the marketing of the Interceptor, they took also advantage of famous customers who wanted an expensive and exclusive GT Supercar: Princess Anne, Donna Summer, Dusty Springfield, Tony Curtis, Henry Cooper, Cliff Richard...


In 1922, the Jensen brothers Allan and Richard Jensen began designing and manufacturing bodies for sports cars and utility vehicles. Before the Second World War, Jensen had designed no fewer than 65 different sports cars, several of which were powered by Ford's V8. In 1962, Jensen introduced the C-V8 Gran Turismo sports car, one of the fastest four-seaters of its time.


In 1966, Jensen introduced the Gran Turismo supercar, designed by Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera. The car received one of the finest model names in car history, which Jensen had already used once before in the 1950s: Interceptor. Touring was known as the designer of Ferraris, Lamborghinis and Maseratis. It had also designed the DB4, DB5 and DB6 under Aston Martin's license and knew what a sleek and fast GT car should be like. The stunning design of the Interceptor was made possible by a unified steel body, which was designed on a separate chassis tube frame. The first Interceptor bodies were manufactured in Italy by the body factory Vignale, but soon Jensen began to manufacture the Interceptor bodies inhouse.


Jensen Motors chose to power the Interceptor with a 6.3 liter Chrysler 383 cu V8 engine. Power readings were an impressive 325 horsepower, transmitted to the road via a rigid rear axle with a differential lock and a Torqueflite automatic transmission, or a four-speed manual transmission. "While Aston owners revved their race-bred straight sixes and crunched gears, Jensen man could surge away from any situation at the twitch of a toe with this Black-Country supercar, surging past 100 mp/h in the time it took the light in Montecristo ”, wrote CL Magazine about Jensen on November 29, 2001.


The Interceptor was a success and was produced in three model series and ten years from 1966 to 1976, a total of 7,141 units, including the four-wheel drive FF, open body models and the SP special model. The rarest of the three model series MKI–MKIII, is the MKI, of which only 1,024 were produced.


This 1967 Interceptor MKI was brought to Finland by Suomen Sijoitusautot in 1993 from England. The car had remained in good original condition, but it was still decided to restore it thoroughly. The car was bought on September 24, 1996 by K. Koskinen, director of the Koskinen wood product industry company. The restoration of the car had started in time and was continued during Koskinen's ownership.


During the years 1994-1998, the car was thoroughly restored by professionals. The body of the car was restored and painted in Jensen's burgundy metallic shade. The car's engine was machined and rebuilt with all new parts. The gearbox and rear axle were disassembled and restored. The exhaust manifolds, exhaust pipe system, brakes, auxiliary equipment and wearing parts of the steering were renewed. Electrical equipment, such as electric windows and the radio, were renovated.


Jensen came to us from K. Koskinen's estate in the spring of 2022. After the restoration, the car had been driven about 5,000 kilometers. The car had been stored in a warm garage and its body was still in very good condition, but the front floors had minor rust damage. The floors were renewed according to the original dimensions. The small defects of the body were restored and painted. The car's engine and gearbox were serviced and adjusted, and the ignition parts and waterpump were renewed.


The car's V8 engine runs really smoothly and it really has a plenty of power and torque. The gearbox works very smoothly and nimbly. All the electrical devices in the car work as they should.


The car's beige leather upholstery with burgundy seeter stitching is in great condition. The headliner and small details such as knobs, handles and the original wooden steering wheel are also in great condition.


A very rare Gran Turismo supercar and an exceptionally fine specimen. Previous owner K.Koskinen was a real Jensen fan and the car has not only restoration, maintenance and repair documents, but also Jensen-related magazine articles from different decades.
