This 750-HP Supercharged Beast Is the Ultimate ‘Eleanor’ Mustang
‘Gone in Sixty Seconds’ fans, this one’s for you.
Fusion’s Eleanor is the only officially licensed ’67 ‘Stang that is converted to Eleanor film car status, complete with side exhausts and Shelby taillights. But perhaps more importantly, Fusion builds your Eleanor with all the details executed to your specifications.
So, yes, you can have the correct pepper gray paint with black stripes, or you can reverse that scheme for a recognizable, but different Eleanor. Or you can have one of the traditional Shelby paint schemes of blue/white, white/blue, red/white or yellow/black.
You also have a choice of engines, which are all sourced from the engine department of Roush Racing, the guys who have won the Daytona 500 twice. Power ranges from the 430-horsepower 5.0-liter V8 to a 750-horsepower supercharged monster, with available 5-speed and 6-speed Tremec manual transmissions or an automatic (sad trombone sound).
And if the standard Eleanor-spec fat tires just aren’t enough for you, check out the massive 315/35-17 rears that are optionally available if you have Fusion build tubs in the rear of the Mustang’s chassis to accommodate the enormous rubber.
Fusion builds these cars from the ground up, so you can not only specify things like interior finishes and options GPS navigation, you can even have them put the steering wheel on the right side of the car if you live in one of those places where they drive on the wrong side of the road.
Base pricing for a Fusion Eleanor starts at $190,000, which may sound like a lot, but you’d be hard-pressed to duplicate it yourself for that much money.
