The Eagle Lightweight GT is the Singer of E-Types

Eagle began fettling Jaguars in the mid-90s, creating some of the very best E-Type restomods we’ve seen to date. Following the Low Drag GT and Speedster, Eagle’s latest special is called the Lightweight GT, paying homage to Jaguar’s 1960s racers. Make sure you don’t miss next month’s issue (276), as Henry Catchpole takes it for a drive…

Though only a dozen were produced, the E-Type Lightweights of 1963 are often considered to be the pinnacle of the iconic British sports car. To bring it’s interpretation of the rare E-Type to the road, Eagle has employed its decades of expertise, cutting edge technology and a staggering 8000 hours of craftsmanship to create what it believes is the ultimate E-Type.

Car pictures of the week

The small-volume, high-performance car is an unusual breed, often too valuable for owners to truly enjoy, or too track-focussed to work properly on Britain’s roads. In the latest issue, we jump behind the wheel of Jannarelly’s new Design-1 to find out if the Dubai-based brand has managed to bridge the gap. To read the full story, pick up your copy of issue 276, out now!

Forced induction and driver assistance systems are making their way into every corner of the automotive world, adding weight, expense and reducing driver focus. In an effort to introduce a relatively affordable, unique back-to-basics sports car, Jannarelly employed the ideal formula; low kerb weight, a small footprint, mid-engined power plant and a setup designed for the road.

Aston Martin Valkyrie deliveries pushed back to 2021

The Aston Martin Valkyrie hit public roads for the first time earlier this year, following its track debut at the 2019 British Grand Prix. Covid-19 put its testing programme on hold shortly afterwards, however, with first deliveries now expected to come in 2021. 

In a recent trading statement, Executive Chairman Lawrence Stroll said: ‘Development of our range of mid-engined cars, descended from the era defining Aston Martin Valkyrie hypercar, continues along with updates of our core sports car models.’ The statement also revealed that although Valkyrie testing and development has now resumed, Covid-19-related delays have pushed expected deliveries back from Q2 of this year to 2021.

BBR Super 225 upgrade for mk3 NC Mazda MX-5

British Mazda tuner BBR has revealed a new Super 225 upgrade for the third generation Mazda MX-5 built between 2005 and 2013. The package combines a selection of BBR-engineered upgrades to the NC’s naturally aspirated 2-litre four-cylinder engine without resorting to turbochargers.

As its name suggests the upgrades yield a generous lift in peak power and torque over the standard powertrain, peaking at 224bhp, a 67bhp rise from standard. Not only is the power lifted, but it’s been done so without compromising on driveability or reliability, while engine response is also improved.

New 2020 Audi Q5 revealed – tech and design updates for popular SUV

Audi has given its mid-sized Q5 SUV a midlife update to keep it in touch with rivals from BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Volvo. The changes are mostly focused on improving the Q5’s technology suite, cleaning up the available powertrains and updating the design. The changes also precede an incoming Q5 Sportback that will rival the BMW X4 and Porsche Macan later this year.

Along with much of the new-generation Audi range, all updated Q5s will receive a mild-hybrid system to clean up the petrol and diesel powertrains. Four-cylinder petrol and diesel models will incorporate a 12V system paired to a dual-clutch transmission and a part-time quattro ‘Ultra’ all-wheel-drive system as standard. Both of these models see power upgrades over their respective predecessors too, with the TDI and TFSI now increased to 201bhp and 260bhp respectively (up by 17bhp and 18bhp).
