The "Eleanor" 1967 Ford Mustang used in the movie Gone in 60 Seconds has sold at auction for $1 million. That's a pretty amazing price, even for a movie car, as Eleanor was just one of 11 built (though it's the last remaining runner), and wasn't even an original Shelby to begin with. Would you have plunked down a cool mil for the car?

BMW's latest iteration of the M5 is upon us, and it's now offering up to 575 horsepower in a new competition package. While the new M5 has become a bit softer in its latest generation, the extra oomph and suspension tuning should give it the edge we like.

Chrysler is said to be planning a new supercharged version of its HEMI V-8. Power output is tipped at Viper levels, with up to 640 horses possible from a 6.2-liter displacement. Sized between the 5.7-liter and 6.4-liter normally aspirated HEMIs currently offered, the new engine would likely make its debut in a hotter version of the Dodge Challenger SRT.

You'll find all of this and more in today's car news headlines from around the High Gear Media network, right here at Motor Authority.
