An E-Type reborn
Following Jeremy’s E-Type 50th celebrations, we watch new life getting breathed into a very old, very knackered Jag…
Posted: 24 Aug 2011
After Jeremy gave the E-Type a proper birthday bash we thought we'd head down to Eagle - makers of the awesome Speedster from the show - to follow the rebirth of an incredibly broken Jag.
As well as making stupid-fast coachbuilt concepts, Eagle rebuilds old Es, adding lots of exciting tuning parts along the way. Each car's built on an entirely bespoke basis and, as you'd imagine, prices tend toward the eye-watering. Once this one's delivered it'll cost the owner north of £200k...
But you get what you pay for, especially if you want to transform a car this rubbish. There was rust. There was mould. There was a family of very aggressive insects. But now, after 4000 hours, the car you see in the pictures has been rebuilt into a better-than-new icon that we want very very much.
