Viper-Powered Jensen Interceptor Being Born in the UK
Brook Anderson is the bloke we are talking about. According to PistonHeads, the man has a wild fantasy, planing to install a 8.3 liter V10 Viper engine in the vehicle. We’ll remind you that the aforementioned Interceptor resurrection scheme includes a 6.2 liter GM LS3 V8 unit. You see? all it needed for the refreshed interceptor to seem underpowered was one automotive aficionado with a budget.
We’ll take a minute to tell you that the LS3 powerplant delivers 429 hp, while the Viper’s unit allows the driver to play with no less than 608 hp.
The mad vehicle is currently a “work in progress” project, with the modification being handled by Valley Gas Speed Shop. Fortunately, the vehicle won’t be a straight line-only vehicle that, as it will also come with a set of upgrades that will be aimed at allowing it to cope with all that power. We are talking about a new set of beefy brakes that will provide a high-level of stopping power, as well as a new suspension that will offer a good handling.
In addition to that, the vehicle has received a set of generously-sized rims that uses a multi-spoke deign and has been fitted with wide wheelarches. You can head over to pistonheads.com to see images of the project, as the adjacent picture is a sketch of a 21st century Jensen (created by Keith Anderson from the Jensen Owners Club).
