Fusion Motors Eleanor Mustang Sounds Like a Blast
How do you take a classic like the Eleanor Mustang and give it a more modern feel?
Well, apparently you leave it to experts like Yoel Wazana and his team at Fusion Luxury Motors, if you want it done right.
That’s certainly what we gathered from a report by AutoWeek writer Mark Vaughn, who was lucky enough to get his hands on one of the modern-day remakes for a test drive.
Offered with a variety of different powertrains, it appears that about the only thing Vaughn didn’t like about Fusion’s Eleanor Mustang was not having a chance to gun the car on the track. Then, again, a more modern 450-horsepower take on the car Nicolas Cage drove in the 2000 remake of Gone in 60 Seconds is bound to have that kind of effect on a car buff.
The Eleanor Mustang is also offered with a 750-hp Roush fuel-injected supercharged V8, a fuel-injected 560-hp Roush 427 IRN 8-Stack, a 480-hp Roush 427 SRXE, or a 430-hp Roush 5.0 Coyote. Although, you get the impression from Vaughn that 450-horsepower is more than enough.
