When Mecum Auctions estimated that "Eleanor" ? the hero car from Gone in 60 Seconds ? would sell for around $300,000, most believed that prediction was low. As it turned out, it was, as the modified 1967 Shelby Mustang GT500 fetched $1 million at the blocks last week, proving that Eleanor was worthy of her "unicorn" status.

There were multiple GT500s used in Jerry Bruckheimer's remake of the 1974 original, but this particular machine marked the "hero" car driven by Nicolas Cage, as well as being featured in the movies' promotional material. By all accounts, she remains beautiful, and was glamorized and brought to life impeccably by Bruckheimer and his team. While there were many stunning cars documented in the movie, including "Bernadine," the majestic Jaguar XJ220, none held the allure of Eleanor.

For a million bucks, it'd want to be the one from the movie!
