This is the first book to cover one of the most significant Jensen cars ever made and one that combined an amazing set of technological advances. The Jensen 541 was an innovative four-seater sports car which made a huge impact at the time it was launched.
This book describes the development of the car, including the early years of the Jensen brothers' company and the fascinating models that paved the way for the 541. The author describes the background and influences of the designer and engineer who were most responsible for the car and covers the evolution of the design through the R and S models. The book covers the many pioneering features of the 541, including a glass-fibre body and the early use of disc brakes.
The 541 also introduced new standards of safety. The book covers the 541's track heritage and how it evolved into the C-V8 and then the Jensen Interceptor.
