Paul Katsus who has a keen eye for spotting exotic cars, has seen a few Jensen Interceptor cars. Paul Katsus would guess few people would know about a Jensen Interceptor. The Jensen Interceptor was a British hand built sports sedan. Powered by an American made V-8 manufactured by Chrysler, these cars paired American reliability with British luxury. In 1970 the 383 c.i engine used produced 335 horsepower. In 1971when Chrysler de-tuned the 383 engine to run on regular gas (lowering the horsepower) Jensen switched to the 440 c.i. engine rated at 305 horsepower, or you could order the 440 "Six Pack" producing 330 horsepower. There were only 232 cars produced with the "Six Pack" engine. The "Six Pack" has so named by the three two barrel carburetors in had on the intake manifold. The "Six Pack" was the most powerful engine Jensen ever put in its cars. In 1972 the "six Pack" engine was no longer produced by Chrysler. Now the high performance 440 c.i. engine produced 280 hp SAE net. The high performance 440 engine was continued to be offered until 1976, by which time its horsepower rating declined to 255 horsepower net.
