RR Auction

Black Beauty, the car actor Seth Rogen used to fight crime in the 2011 superhero action flick The Green Hornet, is up for auction.

Massachusetts-based RR Auction put the 1965 Chrysler Imperial – outfitted with machine guns and missiles – on the block Thursday and, as of Friday morning, had attracted three online offers, the top one for $12,100. The auction closes June 26.

"Twenty-nine cars were made for the film's production, most of which were either stripped-down stunt models or destroyed during filming," said Bobby Livingston, executive vice-president at RR Auction, in a statement. "Only two hero cars remain from the film, the other being the 'pre-Kato-modified' version of the Imperial."
