Muy pocos autos se hacen infames —de nombre— gracias al título de una película. El caso más famoso posiblemente sea el del Shelby Mustang GT500 modelo 1967 que manejó Nicholas Cage en la película 60 Segundos (2000). “Eleanor” era el auto que el personaje de Cage codiciaba y finalmente conseguía en el gran golpe de la película.

La película de Cage era una versión de la 60 Segundos original (1974). Uno de los tres autos principales que usó en la película se vendió en un millón de dólares en una subasta de Mecum Auctions en 2013; los otros dos alcanzaron aproximadamente 200 mil dólares y 100 mil dólares pocos años después.

Pero no hace falta gastar un millón de dólares para conseguir una imponente “Eleanor”. Fusion Motor Company, al norte de Los Ángeles, fabrica versiones nuevas del viejo Mustang.

El mes pasado, visité el taller para manejar la versión arreglada más reciente de Eleanor de la marca, un fastback color gris pimienta y negro con asientos deportivos altos Recaro de cuero y una transmisión manual de cinco marchas que me pareció tan impaciente como la de la película de Cage (también hay disponibles transmisiones de seis marchas y automáticas).

En este auto incluso se pueden lograr las mismas persecuciones de coches de un minuto y saltos mortales de la película… pero no vengan a pedirme dinero para la fianza cuando los arresten.

Inimitable

Si quieren algo como esto, tendrás que acudir a Fusion: la empresa retiene los derechos oficiales de fabricación y distribución de los modelos Ford Mustang antiguos con el nombre específico Eleanor, ya que es un personaje protegido por derechos de propiedad (como Mickey Mouse o el Pato Donald), propiedad de la esposa del productor de la película original (otra empresa los fabricaba pero la llevaron a juicio penal por cambiar el número de identificación del vehículo). El modelo básico parte en 190 mil dólares y viene en una serie de colores vivos (rojo, amarillo y azul, entre otros) y tantos detalles personalizados como desee. Incluso se puede elegir con el volante a la derecha.

Yo manejé varios modelos antiguos y de colección; éste anda como los mejores, pero con más inteligencia y disposición. En la autopista cercana a Los Ángeles, el embrague me empujaba el pie izquierdo insistiendo para que lo pisara cuando lo soltaba y apretaba el acelerador con el derecho.

Sentir bajo mi control la palanca de marchas cortas con la perilla redonda y la caja de cambios perfecta del Mustang fue como entrar a la película 60 Segundos… y el sonido fuerte, sonriente y sordo de ese motor fue como cumplir la fantasía de manejar el mejor supercoche compacto estadounidense de la historia.

La dirección es abrupta en el mejor sentido posible: ajustada y precisa. Los frenos son duros y repentinos. En conjunto se siente sólido, como eran los coches antes que dejaran de ser grandes pedazos de metal.

Manejé a Eleanor una vez y ahora estoy convencida de que cualquier ‘Stang moderno que maneje a partir de ahora me parecerá diluido, incluso castrado, como si no fuera el artículo auténtico. Espero que ustedes sientan lo mismo.

  1. Great beat ! I would like to apprentice while you amend your website, how can i subscribe for a blog website? The account helped me a acceptable deal. I had been tiny bit acquainted of this your broadcast provided bright clear idea

  2. up in the car or at home use. I connected the player to my hdtv using the hdmi connection and it works great. I’m glad that it has a remote because the dvd model that came before it does not have a remote. I just wish that philips would make a tv tuner that you can connect to the device so you can watch local hd channels on the go. I bought this to replace my old Phillips portable blu ray player. I wasn’t really that psyched about purchasing it. Reviews are mixed. But after scouring the internet, I found out that, wow, it’s really impossible to find a portable blu ray player! Sure, you can find portable players left and right, but not blu ray players. This was actually the only one I could find. Also, while I was busily trying to make my mind up, the price suddenly shot up from $229 to $235! I have not tried the USB feature but that is a bonus that I will want to try out. I have not connected it to our home theater system but will report back after I have tried it. I like the size of the screen. It’s pretty decent for a portable player. Definitely bigger (and higher) than my old player by about an inch or so. I tried several Blu-ray and regular DVD disks. The screen isn’t very high resolution at 800 x 480 (my reason for taking one star off). I thought the Sony supplied description was a bit misleading. The resolution is adequate for viewing but don’t expect too much. I’m changing my review to 5 stars. There are a few negatives but not enough to down grade it. I’m not a very sophisticated electronics consumer. If I buy something that works when I press the green button, I’m generally content. But I’m sure other reviews with more technical sophistication can be more helpful than I can be on that score. Ideal for families with children, many of the DVD portable systems come complete with two separate screens that can easily be mounted to the back of your car seats for convenience. Make children feel special and keep them from fighting over who gets to hold the screen. You can also install flip-down screens that fold back up when the player is not being used to increase visibility for the driver and to prevent damage to

We took our 1,400 mile trip with our 2 1/2 year old grandson along. He watched many hours of DVDs (normally we restrict his daily viewing time but not on this trip) and it was a great help. Then, as I myself have a foot cast, I’m using it to watch some DVDs. We were looking for a DVD player to use in the car on a long trip with our 2 year old grandson. There are a lot of these portable DVD players available so I spent a few hours trying to find the best overall unit. I didn’t even think about Blu-ray until I saw this Sony BDPSX910.
