The future of luxury car maker Jensen Motors is again in doubt again after talks with a mystery buyer fell through, the BBC reported on its website.

But administrators PKF said they were now awaiting offers from three more unnamed parties, the BBC said.

The BBC said that Jensen - which builds the £40,000 SV8 Roadster at Speke on Merseyside - went into administration in July after making its 40 workers redundant in June.

The BBC said that Jensen went into administration after the MacDonald Partnership - which specialises in turning around troubled firms - walked away from a deal in which it had been planning to cut costs by moving production to South Africa.
