Eagle, the creator of the Eagle E-Type, has released images and details of its new E-Type Speedster Lightweight. The model is an authentic Jaguar E-Type from the 1960s reworked with more muscular styling, fresh classic detailing, and the performance of a contemporary supercar.
The hand-built car made its debut at the Concours d’Elegance and definitely turned some heads at the event.
“The elements in this remarkable alchemy are an original Jaguar E-Type, thirty years of dedicated experience, and the absolute cream of our widely acclaimed engineering developments and upgrades,” said Henry Pearman, the founder of Eagle.
Weighing in at 2,200 pounds the E-Type Speedster Lightweight is powered by a 4.7L 6-cylinder engine making 310-hp with a maximum torque of 340 lb-ft at 3,600 rpm. Mated to a 5-speed gearbox, the E-Type Speedster Lightweight goes from 0 to 60 mph in under 5 seconds with a top speed of 160 mph.
