Personally I preferred Gone in 60 seconds, the film with Nicolas Cage and Angelina Jolie, the place he decides to assist out his youthful brother stealing 50 vehicles in sooner or later, among the many record of vehicles are a number of tremendous vehicles, a few of which really got here from Cage’s private assortment.
However essentially the most well-known automobile from this film was undoubtedly Eleanor, a 1967 Shelby GT500 reproduction, constructed by Cinema Automobile Providers, with authentic design ideas sketched out by well-known scorching rod designer Steve Stanford.
These had been based mostly on the 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback, with added lights centrally mounted on the entrance, wider fender flares, and a bespoke hood and trunk lid. Energy from the 400hp, 351cu Ford V8 crate engine goes to the rear wheels by means of a four-speed handbook transmission. The spectacular stance is courtesy of a lowered suspension with coil-overs and a set of 17-inch bespoke wheels with Goodyear F1 tires … the NOS equipment then again was for present solely.
For the 2000 film, Cinema Automobile Providers constructed a complete of 11 Eleanor Mustangs, however solely three of those had been utterly working and could possibly be pushed. The #7 of the 11 vehicles is that this one, the ‘hero’ automobile, also referred to as the ‘magnificence’ automobile, and the one survivor as the 2 different working vehicles had been destroyed throughout filming (keep in mind the soar towards the tip of the film?).
As we speak this one in all a sort piece of film memorabilia is positioned in Germany, and it’s listed on the market. Eleanor comes full with a certificates of authenticity that is certainly the precise automobile pushed by Nicolas Cage, seen in lots of shut up pictures, and later used for promotion. Don’t count on to purchase this Ford Mustang at a cut price worth, when this particular automobile was offered at public sale in 2013 it modified palms for $1,000,000, for comparability, an actual 1967 Shelby GT500 Tremendous Snake offered for $1,300,000 that very same yr.
