Eleanor Mustang is a dream car for every American muscle car enthusiast. However, are you ready for an officially licensed Eleanor Mustang, which as a model appeared in the 2000 remake ‘Gone in 60 Seconds’ movie with Nicolas Cage behind the wheel. Before moving forward, we need to mention that if you want to feel like a real movie star, you will need $249,000 for this legendary machine and the price goes up, depending on the options.
Behind this officially licensed Eleanor Mustang, stands Fusion Motor Company from Los Angeles, California. And they are building this custom Mustang, but not only this vehicle, but they can also build whatever you want, luxury, muscle, or custom supercars you name it. However, we will stick with our legendary muscle car, which is starting with a donor ‘67 or ‘68 Mustang Fastback, then is stripped to the bare metal from where the build starts.
Except for the body, the complete Eleanor package is made from real carbon fiber, which includes front bumper, nose, hood, side skirts, vents, fender flares, rear decklid, and bumper. The build quality is unbelievable, the paint is perfect, while the interior is like a luxury penthouse equipped with modern gauges, media screen, ac unit, high-quality black leather with carbon fiber inserts, and comfortable bucket seats.
The engine under the hood is a pure monster, built by Roush Performance which is naturally aspirated 427 cubic-inch with an amazing eight stack carburetor system on top. This engine produces 560 horsepower and 540 lb.-ft. of torque, and attached by a Tremec T56 six-speed manual transmission. Underneath it is equipped with a Detroit Speed suspension which is connected to custom Shelby wheels, wrapped with Nitto NT555 G2 tires, and secured with Wilwood six-piston up front and four-piston rear calipers and vented rotors.
