Interesting photo-article on creating the F&F Interceptor, which I think is the best modified Jensen I have seen. Two of the four cars used survived, so some poor sucker will probably be spending a fortune pulling them apart and rebuilding them to show standards instead of bodging it for the screen.

It looks like there was a lucky escape from the car appearing with a huge rear spoiler!

It's nice to see one of the cars used in this film now in private ownership and being used.
