Jensen S-V8

This is the Jensen S-V8. It is a traditional British car, powered by a 4.6l V8 that develops 325bhp. This propels the car to 60 in 5 seconds flat and up to a v-max of over 160mph.. It handles like a dream too

heres a few pics

cheers

Is that actually made? I remember when it was a concept, but I wasn't sure if it had entered production yet or not

.. and charge ahead it will!
It's aimed at people who go for TVR's, hoping they will want to be different and buy the Jensen instead.. seems to be working!

cheers

Looks pretty good, too bad it uses a Ford engine. Still, its good to see Jensen back in production.

Unhappy not too familiar

i dunno much about the British supercars but doesn't TVR have a better reputation? this looks like one of the cars that the rih people are going to add to their collection anbd that the middle-class will choose for it's better value. i agree though that we need to see some more action fron britain on the supercar market. on that note...I'm all for it!:silly2:

Jensen is making a comeback onto the scene so I guess that TVR is more established. But even TVR's build quality leaves a lot to be desired.
I'm glad they both exist though.

hmmm, I like the way it looks. The front does look aggressive. But if its aimed at people looking at TVR's that want to be different, I'll take a Tuscan S over this any day. The Tuscan's design is just sooo sexy. And with some reflexive paint.... *droooooooool*
