Description

Each Eagle Speedster starts life as an original Series 1 Jaguar E-Type, which is then transformed by an incredibly painstaking build process. Eagle’s small team of automotive craftsmen pour at least 8,000 man-hours into the completion of a single car, ten times longer than Rolls-Royce engineers spend on a Phantom.

Under the bonnet lies a 4.7 litre straight-six Eagle SuperSport engine that boasts 310bhp - in a package weighing just 1,000kg! It sends its power to the rear wheels through a 5-speed custom-built magnesium gearbox (as opposed to the original 4-speed), a magnesium differential and fine-tuned suspension geometry. As a result, it has a greater power to weight ratio than a Porsche 911 Turbo, achieving a 0-60mph of 5 seconds and a top speed of 160mph.

As each car is made to order, there is a myriad of detail, trim, & fittings options to choose from, the exact specification and colours to suit all desires, and this bespoke nature extends through every element of the car’s production journey. The car we present here was confirmed by Eagle as being their highest spec Speedster built to date.

Our car is also the sixth of the six Eagle Speedsters produced to date and the only example available today. Finished in the stunning shade of Eagle black Cognac with a beautifully contrasted Speedster red leather interior, as featured on the model’s premier on Top Gear and which subsequently became the Speedsters signature colour. It was specified with not only the Eagle 'Classic' specification, but with the benefit of all 'GT', 'Sport' and 'SuperSport' optional extras fitted too. The total cost of its optional extras came to over £163,000!

It comes complete with its Jaguar Heritage Trust certificate confirming it started life as a Series 1, Eagle’s build specification sheet, its dedicated history file and a tailored Eagle car cover.

The Eagle speedster is regarded as the pinnacle of the modern interpretation of the original E-type, incredibly enjoyable to drive, beautiful styling and very rare.
