The Jensen CV8 and the Jensen 541S

British Classic Jensen Cars


Great photographs with lots of information about the Jensen CV8 and a collection of Jensen 541S British classic cars, plus an informative article about the super manual drive 541S by an enthusiast.

The Jensen 541S and CV8 were the last hand built classic cars, or automobiles, built by the Jensen brothers (early 1960s).

Truly high performance sports cars hand built in fiberglass with large straight 6 and V8 engines - very fast!

Many cars in this collection were Jensen Owners Club concourse winners.
