Ferguson Formula RR?


Recommended Posts

As fitted to the Jenson Interceptor in the late 60's

OT but of interest is the fact that it was the first saloon car with permenant 4 wheel drive and ABS (according to the website I just read!)

"Ferguson Formula (FF) - The Jensen FF was built from 1966 to 1971 and only 320 were produced in total. The FF can be distinguished from the Saloon by the appearance of dual air vents behind the front wheels -- The Saloon models sport a single air vent on each side. The FF is about 6 inches longer than a Saloon as more space was needed for the additional four-wheel-drive mechanical components. The split bumper is a notable feature on the FF. Some FF models also feature a canvas sunroof, which was a popular addition on British cars of the 1970s. The FF is an upgraded Saloon with all-wheel drive and anti-lock brakes. It was the first production car to have these features, and was declared the world's safest automobile when it was introduced in 1966."

That's right, also the same Ferguson company that produced the 4wd system for the protortype XJ220 Jaguar, and in 1969 were producing protortype Ford Zodiac estate cars with Feguson FF 4wd and vacuum anti-lock brakes. Then the Range Rover was launched and the police said "oh, we'll have that instead then".
