13. Eagle Speedster
The Eagle E-Type is the world’s best Jaguar E-Type restoration firm. They are the absolute authority on all things connected to the legendary British sports car. For decades, Eagle has restored, modified, and maintained E-Types for clients all over the world. But, in 2010, a wealthy American client asked them to produce something different. It would be an evolution of the classic E-Type convertible shape.
Eagle also equipped it with more power and better driving dynamics. They delivered the first sketches and the client was more than pleased. This is how the Eagle Speedster was born. The design is the most striking part of the car. It’s obvious the everlasting, elegant E-Type silhouette was their inspiration.
But Eagle gave it an even sexier look and a lower stance with clean design and dynamic stance. The driver sits lower than in a stock car and is fully exposed to the elements. Jaguar’s six-cylinder engine has been revised to produce 310 HP too. And since the whole car weighs just 2,300 pounds, performance is far better than any stock E Type ever.
The price for this piece of art on four wheels is astronomical at around one million dollars. Although most car fans won’t be lining up to buy one of those fantastic machines, the price is reasonable for what drivers get. After all, the Eagle Speedster is much more a piece of art and contemporary design than just a car.
