In total, eleven identical Ford Mustangs were built for the film. They were designed by American car designer Chip Foose. The muscle cars received an aerodynamic body kit in the style of the Shelby GT500, alloy wheels and a 5.8-liter eight-cylinder Ford Racing engine with a nitrous oxide system. A power output of the unit was 650 hp.

All the car stunts in “Gone in 60 seconds” were performed by Nicolas Cage himself.

Cinema Vehicle Services, which has owned this “Eleanor” for the past 3 years, claims that this is one of the three vehicles that survived during the shooting. The mileage of the model for sale is just over 117,000 km (72,800 miles).

The “Eleanor” is a collector's item. In December 2019, another “Eleanor” was put under the hammer for $852,500 at the Mecum auction. Registered replicas, in turn, are estimated at an average of $300,000.
