Eagles have created a lighter, faster of the E-Type two sitter version. The
Eagles Speedster will debut next month at Salon Prive.

Eagles had been restoring and selling vintage Jaguar E-type for nearly 30 years. It also created it own 50-year-old Malcolm Sayer classic, also called E-Type, and in 2009 unveiled its first E-Type Speedster, which was conceived initially as a one-off model for a well-heeled American customer.

The latest version of the E-Type weight was over 2,200 lbs. The E-Type is powered by a fuel-injected 4.7-liter inline-6 that makes 310 horsepower and 340 pound-feet of torque, and is mated to a five-speed gearbox driving the rear wheels through a limited-slip differential.

Eagles clam that from 0-60 MPH it takes only less then 5 second, with the top speed only 160 MPH.

The E-Type Lightweight Speedster sports 16-inch tires on aluminum rims with stainless-steel spokes, drilled and vented brake discs with aluminum 4-pot calipers, double wishbones, adjustable shocks and stabilizer bars.

More details is going to be announced at Salon Prive, which run in June 22-24.
