Performance, Precision, Partnership

The Challenge

Sussex based Eagle E-Types has dedicated the last 30 years to dismantling and restoring original E-Types, assessing every single part and undertaking all of the work necessary to attain the standards expected for it to become an Eagle E-Type.

Eagle both restores and provides customers with the option of sympathetic upgrades designed to improve on and enhance the performance of the original car.

In addition to developing upgrades and perfecting the restoration processes, Eagle has always maintained an impressive stock of top level original E-Types, presented in showrooms and then prepared to the highest standard when sold.

The upgrade menu is kept strictly available only to buyers of these cars and the full restorations maintaining maximum exclusivity. Furthermore, Eagle has created two additions to the E-Type model range of coupe and roadster: the Eagle Speedster and the Low Drag GT. They are bespoke full restorations that not only incorporate the aforementioned mechanical improvements but are also re-styled.

Prices range from £195,000 for a first class coupe or roadster to in excess of £700,000 for a Speedster or Low Drag GT.

 

Eagle E-Types' Requirements

Each year Eagle probably sell about a dozen existing E-Types from the showrooms and 16 expert craftsmen produce two full Eagle E-Type restorations and one Speedster or Low Drag GT. 

Among the important requirements of the restoration and re-build process is component cleaning and premium quality paint finishing which requires the supply of high quality, clean compressed air and this is provided by HPC Compressors. 

The restoration and re-engineering of original E-Types, demands not only a lot of time, but also specialist equipment and resources.

The Eagle site, in the heart of the Sussex countryside, consists of a number of interlinked, converted buildings that house very specialised workshops and impressive showrooms.

As is the case in many manufacturing processes, the supply of high quality, clean compressed air from compact and reliable compressors is absolutely essential and it’s importance is perhaps best understood by some users who describe compressed air as the ‘fourth utility’.

Furthermore, a detailed understanding of the application and the ability to provide an energy-efficient compressed air system has helped Eagle to achieve the very high standards its customers expect.
