An Eagle Low Drag GT, driven by Top Gear TV show host Jeremy Clarkson in 2015, is being sold at auction in the United States.

The car was conceived as a modern interpretation of the original Jaguar E-Type coupe from the 60s. Its production began around 2010, but only six Low Drag GTs were built.

Setting the Eagle Low Drag GT apart from all other E-Types is its hand-crafted aluminum body, coated in a special Mercury paint that makes it look like it’s made from polished aluminum parts.

The E-Type is considered one of the most beautiful cars ever made, but the Eagle’s creation may be even more interesting. It rides on 16-inch wheels with Vredestein Ultrac Giugiaro Design tires and AP Racing disc brakes with cross-drilled and ventilated front discs and dual master cylinders. It also features adjustable Ohlins shock absorbers.

This work of art is powered by a 4.7-liter 6-cylinder engine with an aluminum block, forged pistons, crankshaft and racing camshafts. It also features independent throttle bodies, a carbon fiber intake manifold, a Pectel ECU, and stainless steel headers.

Mated to the inline-six is ​​a five-speed manual transmission, driving the rear wheels through a limited-slip differential.

A peek inside the cabin reveals dark blue leather upholstery with power-adjustable bucket seats, blue visors, a gray Alcantara headliner, and an upgraded air conditioning and audio system.

The car has only traveled 5900 miles (~9495 km) since it was built.
