Eagle, or as they are better known Eagle E-Types, have been involved with the meticulous re-building and restoration of this iconic Jaguar for well over 26 years.The company was founded by Eagle's owner and managing director, Henry Pearman, who has had a life-long love affair with the Jaguar marque and the E-Type model in particular.
But what separates Henry and his long established team at Eagle from other specialists with a similar passion, is the Eagle E-Type. While, like some others, they successfully race, rally, develop upgrades and of course deal in their chosen car, they have gone a step further. Since 1991 Eagle has been re-manufacturing the E-Type to a modern day standard of quality that has resulted in Quentin Willson referring to it as "probably the best built handmade car in the world."
Eagle are now becoming equally well-known for their bespoke 'new' E-Types, the open top Speedster, the Spyder GT and the Low Drag GT coupé, which they build to order at their rural premises in Sussex.
