Eagle Spyder GT-2

For over three decades, Eagle has been giving the Jaguar E-Type a fresh lease of life. Alongside the Eagle E-Type, Speedster and the Eagle Low Drag GT, another newly-restored roadster has been unveiled by the acclaimed specialist from East Sussex, London.

The Eagle Spyder GT, the fourth recreation by the company, combines the styling of the Speedster and the stance as well as the performance of the Low Drag GT. Based on the 1960’s classic, the Spyder GT too sports an all-aluminium body, which makes the roadster light.

To add to that, it features a raked windscreen and a folding roof. The company says that the Spyder GT will have an “entirely bespoke specification dependent of the specific desires of each client,” which essentially means that it can be tailor-made to one’s liking.

As for the powertrain, the Spyder GT is expected to sport the same mechanical setup as the two other cars – a 4.7 litre V8 with 345 hp and 488 Nm of torque, paired with Eagle’s five-speed manual gearbox.

“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,” said Paul Brace, design director at Eagle.

”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.” he added. No prices were disclosed, however it’s likely that this stunning classic remake will cost over £500,000 (RM3 million).
