Latest NewsMartin Brundle's Eagle E-Type Coupe

We recently built racing legend and F1 commentator Martin Brundle an S1 4.2 Coupe to his personal specification and finished in Black with Tan leather. The maiden voyage was from the Silverstone Grand Prix to Italy via the Alps!

The former Formula 1 driver Martin Brundle is now the chief motor racing commentator on Sky Sports, where he began working with Murray Walker in 1997. His F1 career began back in 1984, and his motor racing achievements include winning the 1988 World Sportscar Championship and the 1990 24 Hours of Le Mans race for Jaguar.

His personal car collection has included several Ferraris - and two E-Types, one of which has been specially upgraded for him by Eagle.

As Martin says:

“I’ve always loved E-types. My dad used to own ‘East Anglia’s leading sports car centre’, as he called it, and my mum would drop me off at school in an E-type. For me the E-type is the series 1 coupe; I’m not one for getting the roof down in a car, I prefer not to be on show like that. Henry Pearman at Eagle found a 1965 coupe and really went to town on it."

"It’s got a warmed up 4.2-litre straight-six with around 300bhp, a five-speed gearbox, it’s lower, there’s subtly tweaked suspension geometry, a stronger engine frame, and wider competition chrome wheels with much more modern tyres. Arguably the most important thing I had put on it was air conditioning – if you open up the windows you get exhaust gases in, so you need air con if you’re going to spend some time in it!”

Martin uses the E-Type extensively:

“It’s two and a half hours from home to the centre of London, and I wouldn’t hesitate in taking the E-type. I’m happy to take it out in the rain; it’ll clean! If you’re just going to babysit it there’s no point having a car like this.”

We couldn’t agree more.
