Cadillac C-Ville


Jensen

The company was known in the 60th, when it produced CV8 coupe and Interceptor. Interceptor FF was the first all-wheel drive coupe in the world and the first sports car equipped with ABS. However, despite the success by the end of the decade the business of the brand faltered and was reorganized by the British importer from the US - Kyuellom Quayle. Under his leadership, roster Jensen Healey was manufactured, a successor of no longer existing Austin-Healey. But this effort failed and the brand Jensen almost gone down into the depth of history.

Jensen began with the revival of the company «Creative Group». Company boss - Graham Morris - the former head of Rolls-Royce and former board member of Rover and Audi.

Once there were found £ 10 million for the prototype shown, the company began to develop a serial specimen. Surprisingly - money was raised very quickly and the list of sponsors included: Department of Trade and Industry of Liverpool City Council, and 20 private investors, including Lord Simpson's ex-chairman and chairman of Rover engineering giant «GEC». Rebirth of the brand started with the native British. SV8 model was developed by two former designers of Jaguar. The car was equipped with a 4.6-liter American V8, and had an aluminum body. The Jensen company plans to manufacture 600 pieces of such cars a year.
