The new Jensen Interceptor - called the Interceptor R - is scheduled to be launched at some point next year, although we’ve just received fresh details about the project. One of the more important new details is that CPP Global Holdings, the British group that bought Bowler earlier this year, will be in charge of developing and building the Interceptor R. Eventually, CPP will also be in on finalizing and assembling the car in 2014.

In addition to its acquisition of Bowler, CPP is in talks to purchase Dutch supercar brand, Spyker. With all of this swirling around CPP, there’s no doubt that the company is fast becoming a name in the industry. Currently, the company has over 250 auto specialists, technicians, and craftsmen in its fold.

The original Jensen Interceptor was a GT-class car that was completely hand-built by Jensen Motors from 1966 to 1976 in the United Kingdom. Engine options available at that time for the Interceptor included a Chrysler-sourced 6.3-liter V8 engine and, later on, a more powerful 7.2-liter V8 engine that produced somewhere in the neighborhood of 350 horsepower.

For the new Interceptor R, the engine is expected to be a Dodge Viper-sourced 8.3-liter V10 engine with an output of 510 horsepower and 535 lb/ft of torque.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

510 HP will really do for a car like this. Anyway, as for its design, I love its exterior and it looks very stunning. I also love its golden paint.

The concept of the car like a Mercedes benz car brand. Usually, all the long hood concepts of a car like this is looks like Mercedes benz car. However, it’s not a Mercedes car. BTW, the style of the car is great, and I don’t know if the interior part of this car is great.

I’m amazed with this Jensen Interceptor, This just proved how classic cars can still drive and give more attractions if you just looked at to its details. Surely if I drive this one, I’ll holding the most precious car.

Interceptor R is one of the best cars for me. Thin car is great the n the other big car. This one can perform soft and smooth. I suggest to include the interior image of this car. Thanks, smiley

This car looks like an auto-bot in Transformers’ movie, hehehe! Very cute and well-built indeed. It has a nice angst that no one will ignore and refused to buy this one.
