One of the favorite movie cars made in numerous replicas is without a doubt the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Fastback ‘Eleanor’ from the 2000 film “Gone in 60 Seconds”. However, this copy from the photos is not another replica, but the original film hero.
For the purposes of the film, 11 copies of Eleanor were made in the Cinema Vehicle Services workshop owned by Steve Stanford and Chip Foose. At the same time, only three copies were functional, while the rest “acted” in collisions and other scenes in which there was no driving.
Now, one of those three original copies is in the offer of the exotic car dealer Al Ain Class Motors from the Emirate.
There are not many details about the car on the site, but it is known that the specific copy was really driven by Nicolas Cage in the film, that it has covered only 1,600 kilometers and that $500,000 is required for it.
Recall, one of the other two copies was recently sold at auction through the house of Mecum for $852,500, which makes this copy relatively affordable.
It also comes with the original signature of Carol Shelby on the passenger side of the cockpit, and the Eleanor that was sold by the Mecum couldn’t boast of that. That’s why there is no doubt about the drive: it is powered by a 5.7-liter OHV Supercharged V8 engine with an added NOS that achieves 650 hp. We have no doubt that there will be Eleanor fans who have no problem with money, and that this movie Mustang could easily reach the fame and appreciation of the most famous movie Mustang Bullitt.
