Jensen Cars Chairman Graham Morris shows off his company's new S-V8 roadster at the London auto show. The English sports car maker made a triumphant comeback last week with the launch of the S-V8 and the appointment of a new United Kingdom dealer network. Morris, the former Rolls-Royce chief, announced a plan to build 600 cars a year. Each of the 10 new dealers will have equity in the company. Jensen, founded in 1935, reached the height of its popularity in the 1960s and 1970s before fading in the 1980s. A thriving Jensen owners club still operates in California. Around 30,000 units were built, mainly the Jensen Interceptor and the Jensen Healy.
