London International Classic Car Show - TV Special
For many years London's Alexandra Palace hosted this annual event in early spring, it marked the beginning of the season in the classic car show calendar. In this half hour programme, former BBC 'Top Gear' and Discovery Channels 'Wheeler Dealers' and 'The Garage' Producer/Director Jamie Langton (Follow on Twitter @JamieLangton) presents this unique look recorded not long before the shows final demise.
Jensen Interceptor S
A unique Jensen Interceptor: originally one of only 232 SP (Six Pack) cars built by Jensen in 1973, it then became - under the 'S' moniker - the first prototype built Cropredy Bridge Garage, the historic workshop and Jensen centre of restoration and know-how excellence.
As the first model to undergo the complex procedure, it hailed a new era for Interceptors and sparked the first wave of enthusiastic interest when it was unleashed in 2006.
This Interceptor S started life as an original model (MkIII) and went through a total restoration process to bring the car back to its former glory, and infinitely more beyond it. Its current incarnation, the very desirable Interceptor R, is now marketed at £139k+ and restoration projects of original Interceptors can run well into six-figure investments.
Widely featured by the UK press at the time of the 'S' series launch in 2006, this Interceptor S boasts the new General Motors-sourced (Corvette) V8 engine and management controls, fully satisfying all the latest emission regulations.
It features a GM fully electronic four-speed automatic gearbox connected to an uprated Salisbury hypoid unit. A sympathetically modified and greatly improved brake and suspension set-up ensures safe yet entertaining handling in all circumstances. Having achieved well documented and sustained coverage by classic car magazines, this specific car earned a glowing reputation and an enthusiastic reception from many a respected UK journalist.
This Interceptor S, finished in stunning midnight blue metallic paint, respectfully close to the original hue, has only covered 3,200 miles since its total rebuild.
A traditional soft tan leather interior complements the exterior colour making the car look perfectly at home within the English heritage scene. The 'S' series Interceptors are now more in demand than ever: thanks to the upgraded package and the quality and reliability standards of work carried out by Cropredy Bridge, this model is a true future investment as well as one which fulfils 'everyday' motoring needs for the classic car enthusiast.
