COMING SOON/EXPECTED :
This fantastic Eleanor GT500 E with SuperSnake package and loaded with high-performance parts. This car is built professionally and equipped with an awesome, complete aluminum factory Shelby 427 FE big block, that was stroked to 510cui ( 8,3 liters!) and pushes out a proven ( dyno sheet available) 700 ! Horsepower and that's...without NOS, Making this car a real Supersnake..
In 1967 Caroll Shelby build 1 very special GT500 car equipped with a legendary 427 Side oiler big block engine that he took from a GT40 racer and that also were used in some of his famous Cobra cars. The car was initially build to test tires for Goodyear and was estimated to have well over 500HP ! ( in 1967). That car was called the " SuperSnake" and was driven by Caroll Shelby himself. It also had upgraded suspension and handling packages and other special options. The car was also used for his personal use and every now and than to pick up clients and Vip's who visited his factory. The SuperSnake was the fastest and most impressive GT500 ever build by Shelby. Some journalist who had the pleasure to drive it or who were driven in it by the legend himself called it the worlds fastest and best driving street car the had ever seen or driven. The car was kept in Shelby's private collection of cars and after he passed away it was sold for a staggering 1.300.000 USD.
The Eleanor SuperSnake we present to you here, as well as all Eleanor's that were ever built,( yes the movie cars included), is based on the 67/68 model of the famous Shelby GT500 car's, developed and designed by Caroll Shelby. Hence that this car, equipped with a similar Shelby 427 Big block engine that Caroll used to build his own SuperSnake is granted the same name. It stands for the outrageous performance level that the car is equipped with.
Each Eleanor that was ever build, the 11 cars that were build for the movie gone in 60 seconds included, are in fact a replica or tribute cars based on the 1967 and 1968 GT 350/500 cars that Caroll Shelby originally designed. And although nowadays some people seem to think that an " Eleanor" is a real independent car brand .. witch its not, the are all upgraded replica's of Shelby's GT cars. The (11) cars that were used and build for the movie with actor Nicolas cage, were NEVER equipped with 428 or even 427 Bigblocks, but all were either 302's or 351 V8's. The also used the '67 as well as the 1968 Ford Mustang Fastback's as a base and not one of the 11 cars were actually the same. In the end only 3 movie build cars survived the abuse the were put through in the film and these 3 cars were sold to the general public and are now priced well over 1,5 million or more and stored in privat collections.
All other Eleanor's on the market today were build, professionally or in privat garage's under the same concept as the movie car's but not one is the same and all have there own quality and special features. All the have combined is the design of the bodykit that was also used in the movie. Thats also why you see so different Eleanors around today with a variety in quality, prices and details. Some Eleanor builders have or had so-called " licensed" build cars but that doesn't mean these cars are better or worse build than others. Buying or finding a good Eleanor style car is thereby not a matter of who build it, but much more of how good and with what quality parts and detail was the build performed and with what options and driveline and bodykit components was it build.And maybe even more important.. Is it a TRUE fastback car that was used for the build and how good is or was the base car used for the transformation...
The car we present to you here is a high-quality build car and in fact, way better than any of the movie cars ever were. Its got way better overall performance and much more power as well. The movie cars had around 300-350hp max, and this SuperSnake has twice as much. It will outperform any movie build car and has a suspension brake and steering system that Nicolas Cage and his stunt team could only have dreamed of during the making of the film. The price tag of this car is also much less and the car can be driven and used as the movie cars never could.
And if 700HP is not enough..this car IS also equipped with a (not hooked up), but completely installed pro NOS ( nitro oxide gas ) kit that could give an additional 250+HP giving this beast close to 950HP. Al that power is transmitted to a bulletproof 5 Speed manual transmission with a dual friction clutch. And it's not just any Nitro kit but an injected system with al the correct plumbings. More than 50k was spent alone on this fantastic engine!.
And don't be fooled !, this is not a small block 427 ! ( most advertised 427's you see are stroked 351 small blocks) but a fully correct Shelby factory 4 bolt main cap full Aluminum ( block and heads) FE big block engine that combined monster torque and power with lightweight. More specs on this amazing engine later. PTTM is currently in the process of finalizing this car and its detailing.
This Eleanor was built on a TRUE AND RARE! 1967 S CODE big block Fastback and not from a hacked up coupe or ex-six cylinder or base C code model fastback. Even the cars used in the actual movie were mostly built on T code six cylinder fastbacks. But not this baby! it was born originally with a Big block from the factory.
It has only been test driven and currently has around 100-150 miles on the odo.. it's more or less a brand new car ! and completely hand build and a true 1 of 1 like it in the world today.
Everything about this Eleanor is built with the best of the best in parts and ALL NEW PAINT in the correct awesome looking pepper gray colors and painted on Black Shelby stripes. This car would run figure 8's ! around the actual movie build Eleanor's! and its overall quality is of a much higher grade.
ONE OF THE BEST AND FOR SURE FASTEST'S ELEANORS AROUND !!..
