Correct, it was the first to have ABS and the first road car to have four wheel drive. It was a low production vehicle with just over 300 units produced over the five years Jensen made the FF. It was not cheap, we're talking a 4x4 supercar though.

The first American car to have an antilock brake system was the 1970 Lincoln Continental.
