The specialty Mustang nicknamed “Eleanor” in the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced movie was driven by Cage’s character, retired grand thief auto Randall “Memphis” Raines.

It’s known that this Mustang was primary “beauty” car for close-ups and promotional efforts. The car was sold at the Dana Mecum 26th Original Spring Classic Auction in Indianapolis at may 2013.

Also it’s known that the car’s exterior design, which included such original Shelby GT500 features as centrally mounted driving lights, pumped fender flares, and unique hood and trunk, was custom-built by Cinema Vehicle Services with the help of legendary coachbuilder Chip Foose. Despite its flaw of not being an original Shelby GT500, Eleanor packs a 351 Ford V-8 crate engine, rated at 400 horsepower enough muscle to keep up with the best of today’s high-performance supercars.
