This is Eagle’s brand new Spyder GT, and it’s gorgeous | Top Gear

This looks slightly tasty...

Bob, I think the article provides insight to your previous question - of the two existing Eagle models they have made five of one and three if the other, so extremely low volume.

Well at least the Eagle reimagining of the E-Type has proper car wheels, not wheels better suited to a motorbike.

There are a few things that, visually, are completely beyond any criticism. Three of them are aircraft...

The Spitfire.
The Concorde.
The Vulcan.

One is a car.

The E-Type Jag.

Not much else comes close.

Honorable mention to Campbell's Bluebird.

I'm sorry to have to do this to you, but it's just Concorde. No 'the' required (in before Pulaski ). Otherwise, I agree 100%

Also, you forgot the EE Lightning. Like a bloody Bodkin point with a jet engine, that one.

Only Americans say "the Concorde". That you don't even care is shameful.
