Jensen furthered its knowledge of glassfibre construction with 1962’s CV-8, a striking-looking machine characterised by slanting quad headlamps. This time round an enormous 5916cc Chrysler V8 replaced the Austin engine. Mated to an automatic transmission it was capable of pushing the C-V8 to 130mph, but this wasn’t enough for Jensen so in 1964 in went a 335bhp 6276cc. This raised the potential velocity to 140mph but also meant horrendous fuel consumption. 1965’s MkIII saw further tweaks to those front lights.
