Description

The story of Jensen favouring American V8 power began during the 1930s, with the building of their first prototype car.

Although this pre-war period was short-lived, this would be the start of what was to eventually become one of the company's main trademarks - the V8 engine. This new book examines the C-V8, Interceptor and FF models as well as Jensen's use of Chrysler, Ford and General Motors engines. The history, design, development and production of these cars is covered and the book is illustrated with 300 colour photographs.

During the late 1980s and early 1990s, he worked for a company focusing on TVR sports cars, along with well-known TVR guru, David Foster. Initially a Jaguar owner, Mark joined the Jensen Owners Club upon the purchase of his first Jensen Interceptor.
