The wheels, which are the heart of the car's modification list, are three piece forged units with titanium screws for even lighter construction. Lacquer finish gives them a high-gloss look, and the twin-spoke design evokes classic styling in a modern application. At 9" wide in the front and 10.5" wide in the rear, the wheels provide ample platforms for the 235/30 rubber up front and 275/30 rubber out back. A 5.7-liter engine delivers 350hp (261kW) to the rear wheels, giving the car some straight-line potential, though not nearly as much as its modern namesake.
Suspension tuning is intended to keep the car adequately sporting while remaining comfortable. Inside, the car is a combination of modern materials and classic design, though as a one-off design it's somewhat more complex than might normally be seen even in a series custom car. Milled billet aluminum instrument panels, a double-stitched leather dash, Alcantara headliner and custom leather sport seats are the highlights.
Earlier this year Classic Recreations released their interpretation of the GT500 Eleanor, and Obsidian unveiled the SG-One, a one-off ultra-Mustang that shares much in common with the styling of the Eleanor, though to be fair, it is a unique creation, mechanically speaking. The original Eleanor, from the first Gone in 60 Seconds movie, was a 1973 Mach 1 Mustang, but modern tastes have shown a clear preference for the late 1960s Mustangs, especially those touched by Carroll Shelby's legendary tuning outfit. The image and styling, though 'retro', are nonetheless timelessly classic in a way that the bulkier, somewhat awkward 1970s cars can't replicate.
