Jaguar E-Types Eagle GT Coupe


car description

The Eagle E-Type is renowned as the finest hand-built car in the world, and if you're reading this description you're probably already familiar with the story . In the case of Eagle 31 however, we had a very special client request that has made this Eagle truly unique. Our client from Monaco really wanted a 2 seater, 6-cylinder 4.2 Litre E-Type with an automatic gearbox. The trouble was that Jaguar never made one - the automatic box was only available in the 2+2. Furthermore, and to add to the complexity, the bodyshell 'tunnel' in the Series 1 would not accommodate such a box, and so we had some thinking, and a lot of planning, to do. Once we had our master plan, our bodyshop experts carefully and meticulously developed the original E-Type body, widening the tunnel in such a way so that it would not only happily accept the more modern Jaguar automatic box, but also have an interior practically indistinguishable from a manual example. We also managed to remove the requirement for the standard automatic gear selector. From an aesthetic point of view, we felt that the 'T-Bar' selector with quadrant and the gear legend would certainly have looked out of place in a Series 1 4.2. Read th
