The stunning Eagle Spyder GT

Eagle is renowned for its re-imagined Jaguar E-types classics and its newest adaptation, the Spyder GT, is perfection.

The new Spyder GT from Eagle is the company’s 4th model which they have loving restored and adapted. The cars are bespoke and aim to retain the 1960’s cars’ original charms but with improvements to the body and engine.

The Eagle Spyder GT takes 4,000 hours to build per unit. Each body is sculpted out of aluminium replacing the original steel, making it lighter. The shape of the original is kept almost identical, although it is now even curvier and sleeker. The beautiful convertible has a canvas and mohair folding roof.

The Spyder GT now runs on Eagle’s cast aluminium 4.7-litre V6 engine, which produces 330bhp and 340lb ft of torque. The Spyder has a top speed of 170mph and hits 60mph in less than 5 seconds. The powertrain is linked to a 5-speed manual gearbox which drives power to the rear wheels. The car has limited slip-differential, adjustable dampers and double wishbone suspension.

Much of the restoration can be customised by the buyer, so that the interior and features are unique. There is a choice of classic colours and trims, with scope for personalisation. The centre-console, instruments and wooden steering wheel are all styled to keep their rustic charm.

The Eagle Spyder GT costs a ballpark £1 million and is available to order from Eagle now.
