In 2009, the world got its first taste of the Jaguar E-type rendition, the E-type Speedster. In 2011 Eagle E Type Speedster was released after British manufacturer, Eagle, reworked their modern day classic. The newer version was lighter and made its debut at the Salon Prive in West London.
Eagle E Type Speedster weighs at only 2,200 lbs and is powered by a 4.7 liter, aluminum in 6 cylinder engine capable of delivering 310 HP with peak torque in the regions of 340 lb-ft. This engine comes with rear radius arms, anti roll bars, 6 adjustable dampers, independent wishbones, aluminum Power Lock differential, and a 5-speed gearbox.
Inside, the Eagle E Type Speedster is uniquely designed with a rear deck that continues to the car’s center, seamlessly turning into the center console. Everything in the car speaks of classic luxury and styling, including a Speedster 3-eared steering wheel. The steering wheel has tail badging, a flush fitting nose, and a custom-designed enamel horn push.
Outside, the Eagle E Type Speedster is only 1,000mm tall, 4,260mm long, and 1,740mm wide. The custom-built windscreen is low and raked back with side glasses as well as hidden “A” posts that help create the smooth shape it has. The car is shaped like a shiny bullet complemented by custom designed aluminum rimmed wheels.
