Metal, chrome and leather

Cars, especially old cars, are very beautiful. The most wonderful shapes, forms and textures when you get up close. So here’s a homage to a Brit Beauty, a Jensen 541:

This car is of a different era. It oozes old world luxury and charm. Bond could easily have driven a Jensen, but this car belongs to the 50s, not the 60s. Chrome, leather, metal and glass.

The engine is a large 4.0 litres. Imagine the roar it gives when you put your foot down. Truly musical.

Sleek and Stylish

I deliberately haven’t put a photo of the whole car on this page. Why, because you don’t need it, you should imagine it. Here’s the scene you should see in your mind’s eye: The Jensen 541, a Grand Tourer. So let’s tour down to the Cote D’Azur, pull up on La Croisette and sip cocktails at the Martinez. Cheers!
