The Eagle Speedster can be seen in the latest Fast & Furious released in May 2013. Filmed at the Longcross studio and on location at the old Billingsgate Market alongside the River Thames.
Andrew Frankel tested the Speedster at the Longcross proving ground for Autocar Magazine. Malcolm Griffiths captured a set of stunning moody and dramatic photographs despite the bleak winter day.
For the first time, Eagle has been visited by Chinese journalists with features appearing in both China Auto Pictorial and Evo China. We also enjoyed very flattering coverage earlier in the year from Motorhead magazine.
"If I were to have an E-type, for example, it would have to be the Eagle Speedster - I just love that car. It’s just how I would have designed it" Ian Callum, Design Director at Jaguar comments on the Speedster.
After taking 4500 images of the Speedster at the studio, the game engineers have captured every feature beautifully, including incredible attention to detail on the interior. Game players can now 'buy' and fully specify their own Speedster.
The Speedster headed to the south of France for the new Clarkson DVD. The Speedster is heavily featured with some fabulous helicopter shots driving up the Gemenos hill-climb road and an interview with Eagle's Paul Brace.
Behind the scenes of Top Gear's "At the Movies" DVD by James May, Richard Hammond and the Eagle Speedster... oh, and some other cars... and, erm... helicopters... and jets.
"Recently on Top Gear I drove something called the Eagle Speedster. It's the most special car I have ever driven. Do I need it? No. Do I want it? More than my left leg." Jeremy Clarkson opines again...
"The Speedster is one of those rare sports cars: you don't have to work it along, it simply flows as the dynamics are so capable of turning undulating tarmac into a perfect palette for all that power. The Eagle Lightweight Speedster is a pure E-Type Jaguar - only more so."

Henry Catchpole drove Speedster No. 1 through the leafy lanes of Sussex down to the coast where he was treated to, not only a drive across the famous white cliff tops , but was able to witness a Battle of Britain recreation from the cockpit at the very same time!
Henry also drove Speedster No. 2, the lightweight version, for another feature more recently.
Celia Walden examines the Speedster, undertakes a little modelling with top photographer, John Higginson, and writes an interesting article from a refreshing and completely different perspective to the car magazines. The fabulous images and article were in the January 2010 edition
Many of our clients and friends brought their E-Types to Beachy Head to help us supply 50 E-Types to help Top Gear stage a tribute for the 50th Anniversary of the Jaguar E-Type.
