What Can I Expect

That famous GT500 car named Eleanor was Gone in 60 Seconds, but you'll be pleased to hear that with this experience there's no need to have the audacity of Memphis and his gang to steal one, as this Eleanor Mustang will be waiting for you to drive her!

You can't beat a good old action/heist movie and the original Gone in 60 Seconds that came out in 1974 was good, but the 2000 remake starring the likes of Nicolas Cage (Memphis), Angelina Jolie (Sway), Christopher Eccleston ('The Carpenter') and a certain Shelby-style Mustang called Eleanor is pure car jacking gangster genius, with more car chases and high speed getaways than you can shake a stick at

We won't recount the whole plot here, but needless to say, it involves young gun Kip getting intro trouble as he launches his car stealing career. Retired pro car thief brother Memphis gets called in to help and the only way to save Kip is to nick 50 cars for Brit bad boy Raymond Calitri, all whilst the cops are on the tail of their plan.

The gang decides to carry out the raids in one day, with each car stolen literally going in less than 60 seconds. After several twists and turns, the showstopping finale is the moment Memphis has to steal the gleaming 1967 Shelby Mustang. This is Memphis's nemesis as he has never managed to take one in his whole car thieving 'career' and the Police know it too…

The showdown comes as Memphis drives away in the Mustang, but then encounters traffic on the Vincent Thomas bridge. With the police giving chase, it's time to hit a ramp and leap over the cars…but is it too late as Memphis delivers the 50th car on the list after the deadline has past and damaged?

We can't promise as much drama as the film, but the Mustang you'll be driving is a spot-on replica of Eleanor from Gone in 60 Seconds and is a dream to drive. These high-powered American beauties are true classics and you will love powering around the corners like seasoned car jacker Memphis - just remember you have to give this one back at the end of your run!

      Whilst my partner really enjoyed driving the car, he was slightly disappointed that it seemed a little scratched, he was expecting it to be more perfect. also £35.00 for a video of the experience or £25 for just a photo is ridiculous. especially when he felt pressured into the insurance and test drive. overall the experience day price was doubled on the day.

      This was a dream come true to drive this car, the only down side was the weather, but that cannot be helped. I would highly recommend this to any fan of the film, car, or any other petrol head.

      Shame I traveled so far and couldn't get to drive the car I wanted to. But apart from that it was good
