UK-based Eagle has been working on Jaguar E-Types for 30 years, turning out both exquisitely restored originals and astonishing restomods. This is the shop that built the Speedster, a no-roof, low-windshield beauty based on a Jaguar E-Type that Jeremy Clarkson famously called “the most beautiful thing I have ever seen.”
And Eagle’s latest model, the Spyder GT, carries on the company’s tradition of jaw-dropping beauty.
Compared to the Eagle Speedster, whose low-slung bodywork was heavily modified from the original E-Type, the Spyder GT sticks a little closer to the original Jaguar shape. The windshield, while rakish and low, isn’t cut quite as dramatically as the Speedster, and unlike the Speedster this version has a folding canvas roof. Think of it as a gorgeous grand tourer, compared to the sunny-days-only Speedster.
Eagle didn’t provide any exact specifications in its announcement of the Spyder GT, mainly because each one will be built to order to the buyer’s exact spec. Nor did Eagle say how many would be built, though the company hinted it would be a very small number.
