May 20 (UPI) -- A 1967 Ford Mustang that appeared alongside Nicholas Cage and Angelina Jolie in "Gone in Sixty Seconds" was sold last week for $1 million.

Fox News reports Eleanor was sold during the Dana Mecum 26th Original Spring Classic Auction in Indianapolis.

The car was reportedly driven by Cage during one of the final scenes of the movie. According to Fox, 11 Eleanors were created especially for the film but only three of them were working cars.

Eleanor was based on a 1967 Mustang. It's main features include "centrally-mounted driving lights, pumped fender flares, and unique hood and trunk. Power came from a 351 Ford V-8 crate engine, rated at 400 horsepower."

No details were revealed about the auction's winner, but included in the sale certificate was the car's authenticity certificate along with a special plaque featuring the vehicle's VIN.

Here's a scene from the movie featuring Eleanor.
