Jensen C-V8
The C-V8 continued the 541 line, and could have been called '541 CT', but was in the end named 'Centre Tube chassis V8'. With a chassis designed by the Jensen brothers and a body controversially styled by their own Eric Neale. It dispensed with the previous Austin 6-cylinder engine and took on a 5,916cc Chrysler V8. Launched at Earls Court in 1962, and one year later the MkII version was announced with the uprated 6276cc Chrysler V8 engine. For 1965 the body was modified with a deeper windscreen and equal sized headlamps as the MkIII which finished production in mid-1966 when the lines took up production of the Jensen Interceptor. 500 CV-8 were produced.

Jensen CV8 MkII 1964. This Eric Neale design can trace its heritage back to the late 1940s when Neale was coaxed from Wolseley by the Jensen brothers. The Jensen Interceptor of that time and the smaller A40 sports that Jensen built for Austin are both the ancestors of the C-V8.
