 This beauty is called the Eagle Spyder GT, and we suspect you want one immediately.

Though officially announced today, it’s actually been on the um, drawing board since 2011. So the first sketches were done way back in 2011, and it’s been planned for the last two years. Eagle of course, has been in the E-Type business for 31 years, and still buys and sells original E-Types, as well as complete and “compromise free” restorations built from original models.

And the company’s now three-car line-up of Speedster (they’ve sold five, with one bodyshell remaining), Low Drag GT (three sold to date) and Spyder GT are also restorations, but with significant performance enhancements.

Underpinning everything is an all-aluminium shell based on the original, with a raked windscreen and folding roof. The GT has all the “poise and performance” of the Low Drag Eagle.

Of course, customers can spec whatever engine they want, but the first Spyder being built is ‘the full monty’. Which means it’ll get the same 4.7-litre straight-six as the Low Drag, with bespoke internals producing 258kW. It’s channeled through a five-speed gearbox with an aluminium limited slip diff, and is good for a 0-100kph time of under five seconds. Top speed? If you’re brave enough, 273kph. Woah.

There’s also an adjustable front anti-roll bar, fully adjustable Öhlins dampers and specific spring rates. Brakes? AP Racing, which should be more than enough to haul the Spyder’s lissom 1,040kg body to a stop.

Each Spyder will be bespoke to individual customers, and as mentioned, the first one being built at the moment will be delivered in the summer.

“The team here at Eagle have taken this love of E-Types to a new dimension by creating the ultimate trilogy of special edition E-Types,” explains Eagle boss Henry Pearman.

No doubt you want one. They’re aiming to build around half a dozen, and each one will cost you $845 000 – the same as the Low Drag. Better get saving then…
