How much does your other half love you? If you don't have another half, how much does your bank manager love you? Because we think we may have found the ultimate Christmas present, should your budget permit.


Up for sale is Nicolas Cage's iconic 1967 Ford 'Eleanor' Mustang, a specially built, sinister looking reinterpretation of the 1967 Mustang Shelby GT500, used in the cult 2000 film 'Gone in 60 Seconds'.


Cage's character Randall 'Memphis' Raines uses the beautiful gun-metal grey Mustang to carry out some of his most daring capers, and it could be yours. A real chance to own a piece of automotive Hollywood history, a genuine dream garage rarity. And let's face it, judging by how 2020 has gone for most people, we'd say you probably deserve it.





With a 5.8-litre, eight-cylinder Ford Racing crate engine under the bubbly looking bonnet, black stripes running down the middle and 'GT 500' decals used on the muscular monster, no doubt this this will appeal to enthusiasts, collectors and dreamers alike. Only five examples were built for the production, and it seems, only three are said to still be in circulation today. Also, this particular model is said to be one of the finest examples from the remaining trio. Can you hear the price ticking up with every word?


And as far as pricing goes, well, it's not dissimilar to looking in the window of most London based estate agents. If you have to ask, you probably can't afford it, but we think it may be around £250-500K, judging by what made-to-order replicas have commanded in the past.


The 'Eleanor' is being sold by German based ChromeCars, and you can view the car here.


Godspeed.
