Tokyo 2010: Toyota Supra IV Dressed Up as a 1967 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Eleanor

|

There have been countless efforts to replicate the 1967 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Eleanor from the 2000 blockbuster movie "Gone in 60 Seconds" with Nicolas Cage. We've seen Eleanor replicas based on everything ranging from a Toyota MR2 to even -the most ridiculous of all- a Smart Fortwo.

At this year's edition of the Tokyo Auto Salon, the students from Saitama University's automotive course presented their take on the Eleanor Shelby GT500 using a fourth generation (1993-2002) Toyota Supra sports coupe as a base.

The replica, which is called "Moto Supra", maintains the Supra's six-cylinder powerhouse, though it's not clear if the students performed any upgrades on the sport coupe's hardware. More photos after the jump.

Interesting...the North American public wants Japanese cars, and what do the Japanese want? American muscle cars.

Make mine a real Ford Mustang!

not a waste of a supra, they probably have tons of those in japan, its a flex of shop having the know how to build such a car. This is tokyo auto salon, where shops build crazy demo cars to show what they can do.

I own a '94 MKIV, and this just broke my heart. Seriously, you could've found an owner for that car who would've kept it like it was and not have wasted such a remarkable car.

Are the previous posters kidding?!? This is the most interesting car I've seen in a long time! If it has a kick-ass engine, I'll take it!

I am lucky enough to own both a 67 Eleanor replica, and a Mk IV supra, and this is the biggest piece of crap I have ever seen!

gotta admit though, these people are really good at making a body kit. I mean the mods look seemless! Not sure if it was a good idea to do it though.
