Profile

First shown at the 1998 British Motor Show, the Jensen SV-8 signalled the revival of a famous British marque of the 60's and 70's.

The Aluminium bodied SV-8 takes styling cues from earlier classic Jensen's while retaining a modern stylish appearance. Power is provided by a 4.6 litre Ford V8, front mounted driving the rear wheels.

Unfortunately production of the SV8 shutdown in 2002 following Jensen's collapse. However, all may not be lost! The newly formed SV automotive company has purchased 18 part-built SV8s which it will complete and sell over the next 2 years, bringing the total number of SV-8s to around 40.
