Built in Britain E-Type

by staff writer JP

Founded in 1984, Eagle is recognised worldwide as one of the leading E-Type restorers, famed for its special evolutions of the legendary Jaguar such as the Speedster, Low Drag GT and Spyder GT models

Exhibiting at the 2018 Confused.com London Motor Show on the Built in Britain stand. Featuring the very best of the British automotive industry, with renowned marques from the UK showing off their creations that have been designed and manufactured in the UK.

Eagle also restores bespoke ‘zero mile, better than new’ Jaguar E-Types (endearingly known as Eagle E-Types) with unique upgrades depending on customer preference. The company showcased the best of both worlds at the ExCeL Exhibition Centre.

On view was a Speedster E-Type as well as a regular E-Type Coupe to show the tens of thousands of visitors exactly why it has earned such a sterling reputation as one of the very best in the business. The Speedster is the ultimate evolution of the open-top E-Type, restyled to purify the detail and emphasise the original legendary design that Enzo Ferrari famously labelled the most beautiful in the world.

"Eagle is truly the pinnacle of Jaguar E-Type restoration"
Alec Mumford, Chairman of The Confused.com London Motor Show

The car offers a unique combination of original classic charm and contemporary supercar performance thanks to its 4.7litre engine, and the car at the Built in Britain feature will be the same model that appeared on BBC’s TopGear with Jeremy Clarkson. Just six Speedsters currently exist anywhere in the world.

Alongside it was the Eagle E-Type no. 31 – a stunning and everyday usable high-performance 1966 E-Type Coupe. Built to Eagle’s GT spec, the car was restored without compromise and features recirculating air conditioning, speed-sensitive power steering and reclining seats for the ultimate driving experience.
