"Eleanor" Mustang from 'Gone in 60 Seconds' Set to Return
Ever wanted to drive Nicolas Cage’s car?
2000’s remake of Gone in 60 Seconds saw Nicolas Cage and Angelina Jolie stealing dozens of luxury sports cars and classics, including “Eleanor,” an ultra-rare 1967 Ford Shelby GT500. Thanks to the Fusion Motor Company, “Eleanor” is set to become more attainable than ever before.
Working with the film’s co-producer Denise Halicki — the wife of the original 1974 film’s star H.B. Halicki — Fusion Motor Company is reviving the beloved car. The new makes will refurbish 1960’s Ford Mustang Fastbacks, stripping the original bodywork in favor of a Detroit Speed Aluma-Frame front IFS kit, multi-link suspension, LED lighting units, V8 engine and necessary upgrades like air conditioning and power locks. Bonus details include a Bluetooth-ready audio system, “Eleanor” detailing in the wheelwells and even a gear shift knob that reads “GO-BABY-GO,” a nod to both films.
The reproductions are priced at $189,000 USD, which sounds expensive until you consider that the “Eleanor” model from 2000’s remake sold at auction for an eye-popping $1 million USD. Get in touch with the Fusion Motor Company to begin the six month build process. In other Nic Cage news, a new trailer has surfaced for Mom and Dad, in which Cage attempts to murder his children.
