Creating the Eagle E-Type
Creating an Eagle E-Type takes time – the 4,000 or so hours it takes to build it and the thirty years of experience needed to do it perfectly. From selection of the original Jaguar E-Type through to the engineering, construction, testing and final sign-off, everything is done in-house at Eagle by our dedicated team of craftsmen and engineers.
Consultation & Selection
The whole bespoke service ensures your Eagle E-Type is precisely tailored to you. From the selection of the initial 'starter' E-Type through to specification and upgrades, it's a true collaboration.
Disassembly & Appraisal
Our expert team carefully dismantle the original E-Type. Every single part is individually assessed and any necessary work undertaken to come up to the standard required for an Eagle E-Type.
A hand-built bespoke and structurally reinforced bodyshell is reconstructed by our team. Around 1,500 hours later it’s ready for our paint shop.
Paintwork & Finishing
The bodyshell is prepared using state-of-the- art materials and then finished to the highest possible standard. It’s treated throughout with the latest anti-corrosion and paintwork- protection treatments.
We work closely with you to define how you plan to use your car, how you will drive it and whether you have any other specific requirements. The resulting specification will be a uniquely tailored package for your perfect E-Type.
Perfecting the Engine
The engine is fastidiously reworked by our dedicated expert technicians, then rebuilt to your specification using only the finest quality parts.
The Eagle is painstakingly assembled in a pristine workshop that has been described as ‘a cross between an operating theatre and an art gallery’.
Road Test & Sign Off
Each Eagle undergoes comprehensive road testing by our experts and thorough final tuning before sign-off by our team. Only then is your Eagle ready to be released.
It has taken our team over 4,000 hours to build - now your ultimate E-Type is ready for you to drive and others to admire.
