9. Shelby GT500 Eleanor Movie Car: $1 Million
Would you pay a cool million for a Mustang? There were times when people would consider it impossible, but the most expensive cars have already exceeded that number. In May 2013, the famous car from the Gone in 60 Seconds remake sold for a million bucks, making history.
They released Gone in 60 Seconds in 2000. Despite an all-star cast, the only true star was the highly modified 1967 Shelby GT500 with the name “E” for Eleanor. Although they used several cars used for the shooting, “E” was the “hero car” for close-ups and promotional purposes. After the movie, the Eleanor soon became extremely popular.
Lots of companies produced and sold replicas with various drivetrains. Purists protested because they made several Eleanors using the real 1967 Fastback, which many considered blasphemy. Even though this car is almost 20 years old, its appeal is still strong. The lucky owner of the real Eleanor must’ve thought the same thing.
