Two words... 'Jenson Interceptor'.
Two words... 'Jenson Interceptor'. We all love it. We all want it. And now one of us can have it. Why? Because a 1974 Mk3 is to be sold by H&H Auctions on October 23rd 2012 at the Imperial War Museum. This right-hand-drive beauty has a monstrous 7.2-litre V8 engine, vibrant blue paintwork, and a biscuit interior. But that is only part of the story. It was originally registered to Jensen Motors Ltd where it served as transport for the Managing Director, Kjell Qvale, before being assigned to demonstrator and road test duties. It also featured in publications such as Motor and Autocar, and appeared in a national advertising campaign for the P J Langford Group. This remarkable machine is now likely to sell for between £24,000 and £28,000. Even this latter figure is less than a new high-spec Mondeo.The Jenson Interceptor will be accompanied by numerous other remarkable classics. One – to use two more words – is 'astonishingly expensive'. So, think of a number. Now double it and bolt-on a zero. Why? Because the 1954 Frazer Nash Le Mans Replica is estimated to sell for between £450,000 and £550,000. How many Interceptors is that? H&H Auctions believe it has only covered 1,262 miles in the last thirteen years, and had a recent bare metal respray. Other auction highlights include the 1941 Pontiac Torpedo De Luxe (£12,000 to £14,000), the 1948 Bentley MK VI Special (£20,000 to £24,000), the 1973 Lotus Elan +2S 130 (£9,000 to £10,000), and the 1988 Frazer Nash Le Mans Replica Evocation (£90,000 to £110,000). Right, I need money fast so would anyone like to buy gold for cash?
