Who needs a Ferrari when you've got one of these?
Is it a 1200cc?
And what does that badge say - is it the supplying dealer?

Yes it is, very redolent of several Italian cars eg Lancia.
The CV8 is quite a looker in its own way but I do wonder why the Jensen brothers had such reluctance to re-clad the chassis in a smart Italian suit.
Daimler should have gone to Italy too for their SP250.

Joerg‘s Mk III is louder, faster, cleaner - and I think it is the better car.

But I seriously like the GK.

My favourite too. I would swap my MK1 any day for a GK. I don't know which is the better car, but don't care, the GK just does it for me. There are a few cars in the world that "do it" for me, Ferrari 330 GTC, Lambo Urraco, Fiat Dino coupe, Jag E-type S1, Bentley Continental R coupe. Don't get me wrong, I love my MK1 and owning a Jensen has been a childhood dream, but these cars would challenge my ownership. All look stunning from any angle, they are just right.
