Depending on your er...years of experience behind the wheel, the car pictured above will either be an automotive oddity from the days where everyone drove around wearing string-backed driving gloves, or you'll get a pang of nostalgia and recognise it as one of the most covetable GT cars of the 1970s. Either way, you'd be wrong – this may look like a normal Jensen Interceptor, but in actual fact it's one of a growing number of reimagined classics – ground-up restorations that aim to give drivers the full classic car hit, but with modern mechanicals serving up a more enjoyable driving experience.
