Third Eagle product will be based on the Jaguar E-Type as well as will be made in strictly limited numbers, joining the Eagle Speedster GT as well as Low Drag GT
Eagle has revealed the third member of its bespoke Jaguar E-Type-inspired family, the Spyder GT.
Joining the firm’s some other replica versions, the Speedster as well as the Low Drag GT, the first Spyder GT product will be delivered which summer, with more to follow. Eagle says which could build up to six Spyder GTs, with each product set to cost around £695,000 – the same as the Low Drag GT.
Like all Eagle cars, the Spyder GT starts life as an original Jaguar E-Type, which will be then restored as well as modernised to create the Eagle car. Owners get a choice of engines, including the original 3.8-litre as well as 4.2-litre six-cylinder units which powered the original, however most opt for Eagle’s 4.7-litre six-cylinder conversion unit.
The 4.7-litre engine produces 345bhp at 4800rpm alongside 360lb ft of torque, as well as will be connected to a a few-speed gearbox.
Eagle says the brand new product “combines the style as well as dynamics of the celebrated Eagle Speedster with the high-performance touring capability of the Eagle Low Drag GT”.
Each Spyder GT will take around 6000 man hours to produce. Eagle describes the brand new car as combining “the poise as well as performance of the Low Drag GT as well as the exquisite styling of the Speedster”. which adds: “The Spyder GT’s raked windscreen as well as folding roof offer the best of both worlds – whatever the weather.
“Each of the very few produced will have an entirely bespoke specification dependent of the specific desires of each client.”
Eagle design director Paul Brace said: “Development of the Spyder GT began soon after the launch of the Speedster in 2011 as well as, like everything we produce, we wanted to ensure which we got as close to perfection as humanly possible.
“We’re renowned for being perfectionists as well as our clients are too – so we took the time to develop as well as deliver an E-Type which stands proud alongside the Speedster as well as the Low Drag GT.”
