Weekend Edition – Sportscar Breakfast Club: The British


The Sportscar Breakfast Club event held a week ago in Sipoo, Finland also brought out a significant amount of metal from the British Isles. Starting with this Interceptor, I’m more than happy to show them off.

By the way, the venue is called Moottorikahvila, or the Motor Café. It’s situated in Nikkilä, which is a slumbering little town smack dab in the middle of beautiful southern Finnish countryside, and in May it’s all green everywhere.


Yeah, the Pantera wasn’t the only burgundy European car there with an American powerplant. The underhood region of the Jensen was spotless.


That rear glass.. It’s enormous in person. And the name Interceptor III just evokes so many feelings.


The Interceptor was accompanied by a Porsche in a darker burgundy. More of it later.


TSW Venon wheels, the bane of my existence. I was reassured they were a temporary solution for this XJ-S, as the correct wheels had been taken for refurbishing.


I said the 916 GTV looked a bit dumpy? Compare it to the sleekness that is the E-Type…


The E-Type was accompanied by another Jaguar, and a XK120 at that. For a car over 60 years old, it was in good health…


Caterham Sevens were plentiful. This one, imported by a Brit living in Finland, was somewhat of an R500 concoction. It sounded insane on the road close by, and could be heard from a long distance. The hearing protection was useful.

    Looking these pics over, I think maybe I haven't been serious enough about considering having a Locost 7 in my medium-distance future.

    The more I read about Interceptors, the more I want one. They look so good.

      I can see an Interceptor in my future, probably closely associated with bankruptcy.

    In fairness to the Alfa, pretty much anything is going to look dumpy compared to an e-type.
    Love the XK.
