What an absolutely fabulous little clip, bravo to the team that made it! A friend sent me the link because I grew up in a very Jensen heavy family, at one point my dad had 6 of them. He loved them, and for a while was even president of the Jensen Owners Club. All through my childhood I loved the 541 best of all of them because I thought it the most beautiful. Ours was silver-red, and it was actually my mums car, but this deep blue and cream is simply stunning. My passion for my own ‘keeper car’, the… Read more »
I met your father at a Jensen Owners’ Club event, but all we talked about were Skodas! A great chap.
Your Dad’s 1950s Interceptor is now in a museum in North London, having been carefully restored.
Do visit us at our Summer Jensen International event if you are ever in the UK at the time.

I’ll keep my eyes out for the blue Jensen next time I’m in the area!
How nice it is to see these cars getting the recognition they deserve, I am lucky enough to have owned one for over 20 years, (now nearing the end of a very long rebuild). One great feature for modern road conditions is the all round disc brakes on the 541 De Luxe version and the R & S variants, with the torque from the Austin lump they also are incredibly flexible, hardly need a gearbox !

This gentleman comparing in Italian this splendid car with a beautiful woman… poetry!
Lovely to see it driving in Italy it fits right in, usually only spotted in the English countryside.
These are still great value for a proper four seat 1950s GT car, quite quick and cheap to look after with all those Austin parts.
Just been looking them up and I didn’t realise out of the 546 produced only one or two were LHD so you have to make do.
Ma che bella macchina!! I don’t know which is more gorgeous, the house or the car, but the 2 of them together make a stunning photo.
How did you find out about Gianfranco?
Talk about ‘ Stump the Grump ‘ ! This little beauty sure had me fooled until I read the text and watched the video ! Che bela machina !
Jensen ! I’ve always said had Broccoli/Saltzman put 007 in a Jensen rather than an Aston for the films it’d be Jensen still hanging on for dear life today with Aston Martin having been relegated to the annals of history . And in light of cars like the Jensen FF ? I kind of wish they would of
The most recent Bond Novel ‘Solo’ by William Boyd and set in the late sixties does have Bond driving both an FF and an Interceptor Series 2 at various points in the book. Reading the Bond Novels, Fleming seems to have been a bit of a hot rodder at heart and I reckon the Interceptor with it’s big American V8 would have appealed to him.
