That was just another hoax, but look at this:

https://www.jensen-sales.com/jensen-ff-r/
"Jensen’s most revered model.
With one sensational car already completed and in a private collection overseas, we are currently engaged in building two more of these rare and spectacular machines for clients in the UK.
Arguably the absolute pinnacle of the Jensen range in original form, our sympathetic modernisation catapults the FF-R into a whole different sphere of “special”. Numbers of these cars will be strictly limited by the extreme scarcity of donors … we hold one more suitable original FF in stock currently."
