It's the longest car there has ever been. When you insure it, you have to list two postcodes for the home address!

Default Manly, not Shouty...

Hi,

Yep, great!

In 2017 everyone would look but it isn't "loud": just what I like.

Its got a Jensen Interceptor front and a Vauxhall Cavalier rear end. My first reaction of "Wow" was overtaken quickly by one of "oh no". But it is kinda cool in its own way.

This is a 1973 Jensen Interceptor which has been modified, redesigned and re-engineered. The car's design has been taken from the Jensen Interceptor SX, a redesigned 21st century Interceptor which was going to be built but the whole venture failed leaving just the designs.

As you can see from the picture, it has custom fabrication on every panel to exactly the same specification as the designs. They haven't done cosmetic work either, but have completely reengineered the car including: All new front and rear uprated Spax suspension setup, HiSpec front and rear brakes, an 8.3 litre Dodge Viper V10 engine putting out 630bhp, a custom exhaust, chassis strengthening and also a redesigned interior.
