One way to think about the Eagle is that it has done for the XK-E what Singer has done for the air-cooled Porsche 911: ultimized it. Like the Singer, the Eagle is not really a tribute. It's a re-engineered, remanufactured car, with revised suspension to handle modern, wide, tires. With an improved (but still Jaguar XK-based) engine, and a modern transmission and brakes. Add the reliability of modern electrics and electronics, top-quality materials, hand-built assembly, and you have "the ultimate XK-E." With a price to match.
