What a gorgeous piece of machinery we have for you in the spotlight today. Perhaps one of the most recognizable vehicles we’ve ever had pass through our showroom, due to it being a replica of the iconic Eleanor driven by Nicolas Cage in the film Gone in 60 Seconds, this thing is a beast. While fans of car-chase cinema might know it better as Eleanor, we know it as a 1967 Ford Shelby GT500CR – with the CR standing for Classic Recreations. This recreation is currently for sale right here in North Miami Beach FL, so be sure to check it out!
[ CHECK IT OUT: 1967 Ford Shelby GT500CR Recreation ]
The nice thing about this being a recreation is that it can offer that highly sought-after classic exterior alongside the benefit of a powertrain and other amenities more fit for the modern market. Now powered by a 7.0L engine capable of generating 545 horsepower tethered to a Tremec manual transmission, it offers plenty of power to deliver an enjoyable experience behind the wheel.
As we mentioned, modern amenities and other things are now featured in this recreation of the classic vehicle, things that might not have appeared in the original vehicle over fifty years ago. For instance, this vehicle features a rack and pinion steering conversion, a Pioneer CD Player, high performance Z rated tires in front and back, a Vaporworx electric fuel pump and much more.
