Jensen Interceptor "Viperceptor" – Click above to view video after the jump

Brook Anderson's modernization of the legendary Jensen Interceptor appears to be progressing nicely, as a video showing the car in near-finished trim has made its way online. As previously reported, Anderson is stuffing an 8.3-liter Dodge Viper V10 under his Jensen's bonnet to supply power (a natural evolution, if you ask us, given the Chrysler V8s used in the production Interceptors).

A four-speed automatic and commensurate suspension and brake upgrades will help the super-restomod harness the monster power underhood. The video description pegs the car's completion for July. Unfortunately, that's about it for details thus far, but we'll keep you updated as more info comes to light. In the meantime, hop the jump to check out new video of the in-progress Viperceptor.

      The look of this car is very polarizing in that EVERYONE will find one thing they don't like, or would change if they had say. The bottom line, though, is that it is way more cool concept and realized car than the nuance items we'd change. Great to see someone's vision in the "flesh". Besides, there are worse things for people to do than to bring back old cars with current (style and engine) components. Examples: Camaro. Mustang. Challenger. Stratos. etc...

      As a 15 yr old kid in England, we had a neighbor who was one of the top management at Jensen, then in West Bromwich. This would have been in about 1970. I remember the thrill of being given a ride in an Interceptor FF, briefly reaching 120mph on the nearby "Fosse Way". Great car.

        i agree that front end is just a mess it needs a total redesign thought at least it should be fast enough nobody will get a clear look at the thing...

      Big mirrors Funny middle panel in the "boot" the grille between the lights, cars don't have grills in the back. Front fender flares touch the top of the beltline, killing the flow front to rear, visually chopping the nose off. Cool idea though, let's have good wishes for the interior and hope for no wonkeyness there.

      Beautiful it is not, but its still a rather interesting design. Definitely styling that was not designed by committee like so many mass-produced cars today are. I kind of like it, in a pitbull type of way... i.e. its so ugly its cute.

      The rear fender flare, the "vent" in the front of that, it's looking like a Camaro with the vent and the rocker panel

      Looks great! For a second I thought the windows had a bronze tint like Blue Blockers, that would be even more 70s awesome.
