Jensen FF 1969 - World Of Classic Cars -

Jensen FF 1969

Produced between 1966 and 1971, the Jensen FF  was the first non all-terrain production car equipped with four-wheel drive and an anti-lock braking system, the Dunlop Maxaret mechanical system, used hitherto only on aircraft, trucks, and racing cars.
The use of four-wheel drive in a passenger car preceded the successful Audi Quattro & Subaru by many years. The letters FF stand for Ferguson Formula after Ferguson Research Limited who invented the car's system. The FF is related to the similar-looking, rear-wheel drive Jensen Interceptor but is five inches longer and mechanically very different. The FF can be distinguished from the Interceptor by a few styling cues; the most obvious being the twin (rather than single) diagonal air vents on the front wing just rear of the wheel-arches.
