If the Eagle Speedster looks familiar, that's because it's based on what Enzo Ferrari called "the most beautiful car in the world" — or the Jaguar E-Type. Much like our friends over at Singer Porsche, the good chaps at UK-based Eagle Automotive start their process with a stock E-Type, but what you eventually get to drive is radically, obscenely, amazingly different. Every part of the car is put on a rigorous diet while the engine is simultaneously beefed up beyond recognition. The fruits of their labor are obvious.

Driving the Eagle Speedster is about as close to a religious experience as some
lucky bastards car guys have ever gotten. Mercifully however they've updated the brakes to huge honking carbon discs on all four wheels to keep things from getting a bit too religious.
Each interior is custom kitted to the lucky owner's specifications. It's the least they could do for that £600,000 you just wired into their bank account.
This. Whatever this is, the world needs so much more of it.
The cockpit's been entirely re-sculpted, updating it to the 21st century while keeping things as pure and simple as possible.
Minimal dials + nothing digital = driving perfection.
God save the Eagle Speedster.
