The Martin Brundle Eagle No.28

  • In 2011 Martin Brundle decided to trade in his Eagle supplied V12 Roadster and commission his interpretation of the ultimate Jaguar E-Type.

    Martin & Liz Brundle drove his V12 Roadster in the E-Type's 50th anniversary rally from Coventry to Geneva, replicating the famous 1961 run by Norman Dewis to the Geneva Motor Show. Martin, of course, is the most successful works Jaguar driver in history, with the1988 World Championship and Le Mans and Daytona 24 hour wins under his belt.

    Martin had the opportunity to try Henry’s own 1989 Pirelli Classic Marathon winning car, and was seriously impressed by the handling, dynamics and performance.So much, in fact, that he commissioned Eagle to bring a Series 1  E-Type up to his bespoke specification.

    With a focus on performance and practicality, his specification included a hand-crafted aluminium bonnet for weight reduction, a 4.2 litre engine developed to our SuperSport specification that develops over 300bhp, speed sensitive electric power steering and a host of comfort features including our own recirculating air-conditioning and an all-leather interior.

    This extraordinary E-Type was delivered to Martin in time for his road trip to the Spa Grand Prix in 2012 for Sky F1. So impressed was he that instead of returning home he drove his E-Type onto Monza for the Italian Grand Prix and then took the long way home through the Alps.

    Why is Martin letting this wonderful car go? Well, on a recent visit to Eagle HQ, Martin spied our Low Drag GT Coupe and couldn't resist. Consequently he's decided to offer for sale ‘Elvis’, as it’s known in his family.

    So here it is - an E-Type developed to an exceptional specification to the precise wishes of a racing legend.
