Jensen S V8 (2007)
The Jensen S-V8 was the last of the Jensen cars and after a 10 million pound investment, including Liverpool City Council and the Department of Trade and Industry, the car was launched at the 1998 British International Motor Show with an initial production run of 300 units planned at a selling price of 40,000 pounds each. The Merseyside factory in Speke commenced production in August 2001 but troubles with the manufacturer meant production ceased with only 20 ever leaving the factory and another 18 cars left partially completed. The company went into administration in July 2002. Referred to as the 'million pound Jensen', the S-V8 is powered by a Ford Mustang 4.6-litre, 32-valve, four-cam, V8 engine producing 325bhp and with a top speed of 160mph and 0-60mph in less than five seconds. The Jensen name together with partially completed cars were later sold to SV Automotive of Carterton in Oxfordshire in 2003 who decided to complete the build of 11 of the cars under the supervision of Graham Henley as managing director.
