saw this while i was out on the bike,

a Porsche Spyder, or is it? this one is a replica but it does look really cool, it's based as you'd expect on a beetle chassis, it's for sale for £15,000 at the beaulieu garage near me, the garage owner even attempted to flog it to me! love the look of it though and i wish i had the money as it would be such fun :D

Very nice.

There is one on Ebay at the moment near that price.

How about one of these though?

I know someone with a Lomax, they are tiny though so very dependent on other road users being sensible, which as cyclists we all know about, the issue with the Jensen would be the fuel economy, at 12 mpg, 100 miles costs £50 or there abouts, cheaper to tow it http://joc.org.uk/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=4058

I have broken a few Interceptors. Used to take the motor and box out and the scrappy picked the rest up!
You say cheaper to tow it. I had an SP engine in my dodge[I broke an SP] I broke the tailshaft housing going to the race track near Bristol. The Dodge used 19 quids worth of petrol to get there and a fivers worth of diesel to get it home on our transporter, Tony had to drive his race car home;-)

That is intentional to balance the aerodynamics.
