Eagle E-Type Low Drag - possibly the sexiest car ever made

This is the Eagle E-Type Low Drag.  It is possibly the finest looking hulk of machinery I have ever seen.

Eagle E-Type Low Drag

Eagle, the E-Type restorers and builders, have recreated the 60s Jaguar Low Drag E-Type and added modern practicalities such as legroom, headroom and the ability to get in through the doors.

The aluminium lightweight body was constructed by RS Panels, an E-Type specialist, and houses Eagle's fuel injected, aluminium, 4.7 litre, straight-6 engine, mated to a 5-speed manual transmission.

Other improvements over the original Low Drag include a bigger boot, air-conditioning and a larger fuel tank.

This car is a one off.  It will cost more than £1,000,000.  It is automotive beauty on an epic scale.
