Is that you Eleanor?

I’m sure many of you have seen “Gone in 60 Seconds” with Nicholas Cage. The car that got everyone’s heart pumping in that flick was the Mustang Shelby GT500 nicknamed “Eleanor”.

Using the car as their inspiration, students from Saitama University in Japan created their own version of the Eleanor Shelby GT500 and showcased it at this year’s Tokyo Auto Salon. What lies beneath the skin? A 4th generation (produced between 1993-2002) Toyota Supra!

    Hi everyone,

    The car is sort of “Frankenstein-ish”, right? Pretty good job for students!
