I’d make my grab at the Eleanor, Cage’s nitrous-sniffing, tricked-out ’67 Shelby Mustang GT500 that featured so prominently
in Gone in 60 seconds ( I Say thats 'Pure American Muscle' ).

P, you are my new best friend

I lust after the Shelby GT500, and though I saw a couple of GT350's never a 500. More power than the chassis could handle...apparently twisted under full throttle in certain conditions.

Seen that red jag a couple of times on the link road at malad. Looks like it is going thro some pretty bad days. Seen it with those false twin exhaust pipe ends stuck on either side of the front fenders. Its parked on some says at goregaon sports club. Seen a similar one at koregaon park in pune abt 2-3 years back. That one was in prime condition.

Guys,

I really cant answer this question man!! i am dying!!?..355..575...288...carreraGT....sl65...dia b30se...i just dont know.....

However, i will say - ive never noticed that the external mirrors on the 288GTO were so raised!! they are like on towers! less wind resistance at higher altitudes due to rarer air i guess

cheers

Great choice Rehaan . I love the 355 too but I tried to be as impractical as possible

hey Rtech i'm with you on this one. Nothing comes close to the Mclaren F1 which combines power and handling like no other.
