”Development of the Spyder GT began soon after the launch of the Speedster in 2011 and, like everything we produce, we wanted to ensure that we got as close to perfection as humanly possible. We’re renowned for being perfectionists and our clients are too – so we took the time to develop and deliver an E-Type that stands proud alongside the Speedster and the Low Drag GT.” – this is how Paul Brace, Design Director at Eagle, would describe the born of this rare and extraordinary piece of engineering.
The Eagle Speedsteer GT is taking its inspiration from the one firts developed back in the 1960s, and is considered at the carmaker`s ”fourth-evolution of the Jaguar E-Type, after the Eagle E-Type, the Eagle Speedster and the Eagle Low Drag GT.”
Recently rebor from the ashes in a limited edition and built entirely out of aluminum, featuring a folding soft top and plenty of bespoke features, the Eagle Spyder GT can pleasure fancy and rich customers with a price tag of no less than £834,000.
Even with the vintage looks, this exquisite model is tweaked with lots of high-tech features and a powerful 4.7-liter six-cylinder, with 330 horsepower and 340 lb-ft of torque, which allows for impressive performance: just 5.0 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h, at a top speed of 170 mph.
