We really like the idea of resto-modding: taking something old, fitting modern components and accouterments and putting it back on the road. It's the single best way to preserve classic designs for future generations while making sure that the horrible, antiquated driving experiences aren't there to scare people off.

Eagle, in the UK, is one of the best in that respect. The small firm takes old Jaguar E-Types and transforms them into modern creations that can brake, handle and accelerate like they never could from the factory. Eagle's latest creation is one we've seen before – the Low Drag GT Coupe.

With its beautiful looks and intoxicating engine note, can you really blame us for posting another video on this 700,000-pound ($1.17 million in a straight exchange at today's rates) masterpiece? Car has a video review of the new model, and it's really worth a watch

Take a look below for the video.

      I'd rather have a Singer 911 and spades of cash left over.

      Painfully gorgeous but the Speedster is more beautiful! The sound, craftsmanship, all the new revised mechanicals, and classic looks; def worth more than the cost of admission.

      Beautiful car and obviously scrupulously engineered and built, - but $1M + ? Sorry, I don't see it.

      I though ICON 4x4 was outrageous with their 200k restomods. This is just nuts.Nice idea though.

      I'm all for this kind of thing. If I had the money I would love to resto-mod a 1970 Camaro SS body with an updated interior and drivetrain of Tesla Model S.

      I've always thought the low drag coupes were some of the most beautiful cars ever built, and this just takes it over the top. Simply astonishingly beautiful, and with the mechanicals to match. But the price is ludicrous. I mean, they should charge as much as they think they can get out of it, but there simply isn't a millions worth of car here IMO. I'd be hard pressed to consider $400k a good deal for it, much less more than twice that. Oh well, I'm glad it exists so I can at least ogle it in videos.

      can we see pictures of the actual restoration process, upgraded components, engine, suspension, etc?
