Ford GT40

Ford GT40 was one of the contenders to be Eleanor in “Gone in 60 Seconds» (2000)

Very rare American sports car – Ford GT40 was discussed as one of the contenders for the role of Eleanor in “Gone in 60 Seconds» (2000) but due to the fact that the car would have to perform difficult stunts option was rejected.

The fact that classic Ford Mustang or Shelby GT500 against the background of contemporary Ferrari and Lamborghini would look like a poor relation, and Eleanor – this is a car which has to be focused all the attention, and the spirit of the original film would be completely lost if it acted in the role of, say, European sports car.

Therefore, the studio began to look for options, with a stature commensurate with the Ferrari and Lambos. New look of the car came up the famous illustrator Steve Stanford. As a result classic Ford Mustang was customized by famous designers Cheep Foose. But still, something from this car still borrowed – wheels with Eleanor in “Gone in 60 Seconds” (2000) are the same as the Ford GT40.
