The Jensen S-V8 is the most recent in a series of Jensen cars. The car was launched at the 1998 British International Motor Show, with an initial production run of 300 deposit paid vehicles. After troubles with the manufacture, production ceased with only 20 ever leaving the factory and another 18 cars left partially completed.
The Jensen name and partially completed cars were later sold to an engineering firm, who decided to complete the build of 12 of the cars.
