Eleanor Mustang GT500, known from Gone in 60 seconds

HOLLYWOOD FLAIR AT THE RED BULL RING CLASSICS

Stars of the automobile scene

The top automotive stars of the dream factory will be on display at this year’s Red Bull Ring Classics. One to look forward to is the highly-coveted original Ford Mustang GT 500 ‘Eleanor’ from the blockbuster ‘Gone in 60 Seconds’ starring Nicolas Cage and Angelina Jolie.

Eleanor is one of three so-called ‘hero cars’ still in existence. These are vehicles in which the main characters in a movie can also be seen in close-up and which remain fully functional. The value of Eleanor is estimated to be around one million euros.

The original 1968 Mustang from the Steve McQueen classic ‘Bullitt’ will also be on display. This is an almost completely blemish-free, original Mustang chassis in Highland Green. Only the floor assembly, engine, axles, brakes and drivetrain have been restored to make the car driveable again. The rest is still in its original condition from 1968.

You also have the unique opportunity to marvel at the General Lee Dodge Charger familiar from the Dukes of Hazzard series with Bo & Luke Duke, as well as the Yenko Camaro, VW Jetta, Plymouth Cuda and Mona Lisa from the ‘Fast and The Furious’ series films.
