Eagle Special Edition cars are vehicles reaching the price of a total of one million dollars. The latest modified restoration – Eagle Lightweight GT 2020, pays tribute to the E-type race cars of the past. These cars date back to the 1960s, when the enthusiasm of the car brands was focused on making speedsters. The modifications on the earlier models that Eagle knocked the door of the market with have lots of similarities. On the other hand, now the difference lies in the redesigning of the exterior look on Eagle Lightweight GT 2020.
On the vehicles aluminum body, the smooth edges now give a gentle feel. But how the brand managed to preserve the car’s muscularity, is just a miracle. The gorgeous car is simply a synonym to the attention to detail. The rest of the work included improved air conditioning and interior refreshment with leather.
Eagle Lightweight GT 2020: What is the Car Notable With?
Perhaps the brand aimed to set a whole new standard in the year of 2020, because with the modern technologies, not only plenty of hours of hand crafting is brought onto the vehicle’s reconstruction, but also the popular approach of 3D printing is present. The new panels of aluminum are what makes the car lightweight and perfect on road. The car looks like a concept from the ideology of the industry, of one of the greatest car makers Enzo Ferrari. However, the fresh appliances to the Eagle Lightweight GT 2020 start from deeper rear look to improved screen rake both at the front and at the back. Throughout the latter, bespoke glass decorates the model.
Wheel arches now look more massive that welcome the magnesium alloy wheels of 16 inches. Reminds of the Dunlop examples, doesn’t it? Well, the distinguishing point is the size, which was enlarged to sit well with the modern rubber. The weight of the car, due to the magnesium and aluminum parts is something around 1017 kg.
The Attractive Interior of Eagle Lightweight GT 2020
You could expect the car’s interior to be something suitable for a race car of the past. But the creativity of the Eagle’s designer team does not work in that way. Let’s start with the color gamma. White wheels assist the contrast with the flat blue of the rest of the body. Inside, the aluminum dashboard speaks well with the tan leather seats. The steering wheel is covered in wood. The logo of the racing number appears on the doors, with the signature circle around, that is found on the vast majority of the race cars.
The lowered seats give the driver and the passenger more comfortable leaning. Feels like the they hold you on the corners of the roads, when you travel fast. In front, the long bonnet brings your focus on managing the enter to the corners beforehand. Although in reality Eagle Lightweight GT 2020 is small, the position of the seats and the presence of the long bonnet make it feel huge.
The Engine and Performance of the Lightweight E-Type
A wide-angle head engine is located under the long hood of the vehicle. Aluminum is here too, forming the 4.7 liter motor. Unlike the other models from Eagle, carburetors on Lightweight GT are 3 in number and not SU type. Weber carburetors are made in Spain nowadays, though they date back to the 1920’s Italy. The unique noise you get from the car when choking the pedal to higher revs per minute. It is simply thrilling and sonorous.
Throttle it to the max 3600 rpm, and let it sing you an aggressive ode to the power. 360bhp is what you find a worthy spec for a 2-seater like this. E-type gear shift is eye-catching too, with its rounded head and short body. However the journey from second to the 3rd shift takes somehow longer than expected.
Even though you sit low inside the salon, you will not feel so claustrophobic, thanks to the large glass windows at four sides of the car. The curled rear glass is both modern and sporty. Well, you can feel the inspiration from Jaguar cars, as well as Bentley concepts in this particular detail. This stunning model is up for grabs, if you don’t feel greedy about your $1 Million.
