    I have to say that i have always thought of the Interceptor as one of the best British/American hybrids ever made. The car always a had unique design to me it really didnt look like anything else plus you add a simple , powerful, reliable Chrysler v8 that im sure sounds lovely coming out the back. Plus i always thought the name Interceptor was the best name for a car. Who wouldnt want to drive a Interceptor ;)

    Technically it's a British/ American / Italian hybrid as it was styled by Touring of Milan, and the early series one cars had their bodies built by Vignale in Italy.

    Yes i do know that the car was styled by the Italians. So i guess it would make the car a Tribrid of of sorts ;)

    Combine one of these engines with a modern, aftermarket electronic fuel injection system and a tune-able solid state ignition setup (one coil per spark plug, no distributor) and you have a phenomenally powerful, reliable power plant. It's the carb and the points ignition that cause these engines to be the stuttering fuel pigs they can sometimes be.

    Had the good fortune to drive an Interceptor a few years back. Really, really appealing vehicle - not a great handler but just sort of flows around in the manner you'd expect of the American cars that share its engine. Great burble from the exhausts too and can't go too far wrong with a finely-crafted British cabin.
