The Eagle Speedster is an amazingly pretty car, unmatched by anything modern you’d throw its way. Calling it the prettiest car in the world is too bold of a statement, but if find it deliciously beautiful. Now, Eagle has just revealed a new model, and it’s one that only comes to make the previous sentence even less meaningful…
It’s the new Eagle Low Drag GT, a custom car based on the Jaguar E-Type Low Drag Coupe (a racing variant), but with a longer and more svelte silhouette courtesy of an extended wheelbase. The original was a looker, but this new interpretation is even better.
Its creators call it the ultimate grand tourer, and boast about its extra legroom over the regular low-drag coupe, recirculating air-con and the long-range fuel cell that makes long distance cruising possible. There are performance upgrades that buyers can opt for, including speed sensitive electric power steering (not sure why you’d want that), sports and adjustable suspension riding on Ohlins dampers, full leather trimmed interior and a concealed sat-nav screen.
Power comes from the same 4.7-liter straight-six as before, and it sends all its power to the rears through a five-speed stick shift. Performance is irrelevant with the sound note it’s capable of producing, coupled with the disturbingly pretty looks, but it will definitely be fast enough for most people – this car is about the experience, not the numbers.
Well, actually, that’s not entirely true. One of the numbers is important, the price; it stands at £650,000 ($1,050,000 or €777,000).
