Eagle has announced that its E-Type Lightweight Speedster will make its debut at the Salon Prive in London. Powered by a 4.7-liter six-cylinder engine that produces 310 hp (231 kW / 314 PS) and 340 lb-ft (460 Nm) of torque, E-Type LS is glaringly inspired from the Jaguar model. But it comes up with a bit of muscular styling, fresh classic detailing, and performance matching with that of a supercar.
