Jan 27, 2017 11:22 PM EST | Carl Anthony Teves

Eagle is a marquee of the American subsidiary of the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles that is handled by an Italian Auto manufacturer. The company marked out their new Spyder GT model that has the combination of style and great dynamics just as the Speedster with the high-performance capability of the Low Drag GT.

The car is from the first E-type Jaguar that was then remodeled and added advanced features to be in line with the present generation. One can choose from its available engines such as the original 3.8 liter and a 4.2 liter six cylinder units that powered the original and a 4.7 liter six cylinder conversion unit which has been chosen by the buyer of the first GT.

When it comes to the engine, the 4.7 liter produces a bhp of 330 in a 4800 rmp. Alongside is the 340lb ft torque from the 3600 rpm that is linked to the aluminum five-speed gearbox. As for the car's weight, it is more like the Porsche 911 GT. It has a 1029 kg which means that from power to weight is 321bhp/ton. In addition, 0-60 mph will only take less than 5 seconds and its top speed is 170 mph.

According to Paul Brace, Eagle's director for design, "Development of the Spyder GT began soon after the launch of the Speedster in 2011 and, like everything we produce, we wanted to ensure that we got as close to perfection as humanly possible." He also added that they were known for being a perfectionist as well as their clients that is why they spent a long time in recreating and developing an E-type vehicle that will proudly stand out with their Speedster and the Low Drag GT.

Eagle's open-top Spyder GT model may run prices from £695,000 (excluding taxes) to £834,000. The prices are just the same as the Low Drag GT. Meanwhile, the car is made to order and will be produce based on the desired specification of every client.
