Eagle E-Type No.8 – Commissioned to a very high specification, known to and maintained by us since.

  • Commissioned as a full restoration Eagle E-Type in the first week of 1998, Eagle E-Type No.8 was certainly the best way for the discerning owner to kick-start the New Year.

    Although originally specified to a high spec’, the owner thoroughly enjoyed the process of tailoring his perfect E-type and made numerous additions to the options list throughout the course of the restoration. As such No.8 emerged from our workshops with our ultimate SuperSport specification.

    The extensive list of upgrades, which can be seen in full below, includes uprated cooling, brakes, suspension, engine internals and electronics. As a result this E-Type is fantastically capable, much safer and (most importantly) thoroughly enjoyable to drive.

  • This was certainly the opinion of Jeremy Clarkson, who declared this very E-Type his Car of the Century for his millennial television programme. At around the same time EVO magazine echoed Clarkson’s sentiments in a road test against the then new Aston Martin DB7 Volante, which Eagle No.8 naturally won.

    A decade on from commissioning No.8 the owner reluctantly decided to part ways with the E-Type. (He was recently reunited with the car on a visit to our showrooms and certainly regrets letting it go!) Nonetheless we were more than happy to sell the car for him and it has been with its second owner these last near-10 years.

    Today Eagle E-Type No.8 has covered just 24,197 miles since our full ‘0-miles’ restoration, during which time both owners have entrusted us with its meticulous maintenance and servicing. 

Presented in stunning condition, this Eagle is available immediately and would be the perfect way to kick-start your New Year.
