Description

The Jensen CV8 was the fastest four-seat cars in the world when it was introduced in 1962, capable of reaching speeds in excess of 136 mph (219 km/ h) and accelerating from 0 – 62 mph in just 6. 7 seconds, as quick as the Lamborghini Miura.
Early versions of the CV8 were powered by the Chrysler 361 cubic inch (5. 9 liter) V8 producing 295 hp. Later cars from 1964 onwards would receive the 383 cubic inch big block, also from Chrysler, producing 330 hp and a hefty 460 lb ft of torque.
The engineers at Jensen realized that due to the significant size and weight of the engine it would need to be positioned as far back in the chassis as possible to avoid nose-heavy handling and catastrophic understeer. As a result of this they developed the chassis to accommodate the engine back just behind the front axle line, making the CV8 a front-mid engined car. Our car is for sale as an unfinished project due to bereavement. Fitted with New sills, new floors, running and driving. An exciting project.
