    Marking the rebirth of the brand, the formation of the Jensen Group is the start of the next chapter in the Jensen story, following the collapse of the car manufacturer in 2002. The Jensen Group is currently engaged on a project to launch the Interceptor 2 in 2016, which may involve collaboration with an established automotive group.

    This new model, classed as Interceptor the 2, will take design cues from the classic Interceptor and will advance the concept of the original grand tourer, to provide a thoroughly modern and exciting vehicle.

    Spearheaded by industry stalwart Tim Hearley, the return allows enthusiasts to purchase an officially sanctioned car, the Jensen GT.


    The Jensen Group licences, markets and uses the Jensen and Interceptor names for use within the automotive sector as well as other industries.


    Frequently Asked Questions


    How is this car related to the Jensen Interceptor announced in 2011?

    This car is not related to the vehicle commissioned by Healey Sports Cars Switzerland Ltd. and does not incorporate any of its design elements.

    Jensen Group successfully established its ownership of the Jensen and Interceptor brands in order to clear up any confusion over the future of the marque going forward.

    The Jensen Group is not affiliated with any other company which claims to own the rights to use the Jensen or Interceptor name.

    Are we the real home of Jensen?

    There are number of enthusiastic and talented companies working on the restoration of old Interceptors and we don't wish to detract from their work. However, we are not looking to restore or repair an old Jensens, and are concerned with building all new Jensen cars.

    For the Jensen GT we are working with Jensen International Automotive (JIA), the recognised leader in the modernisation of Interceptors. This will ensure that the GT is worthy of bearing the Jensen badge.

    Why are we different?

    It's taken a lot of time and resources to get this far, and we're under no illusion that reviving this great marque is not a straight-forward exercise. The legal battle for the Jensen name has taken almost four years, so you can see that we're committed to this project.

    The team behind this project is highly experienced and provides the skills required to see this through to conclusion. The Jensen Group is concerned with the return of the Jensen name and we are actively considering the options for new cars the future.
