Calling all crimefighters: Green Hornet’s Black Beauty up for auction Add to ...

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.”

The black Imperial – complete with a Green Hornet emblem on the trunk – also has black leather seats, its original 413 engine and 71,421 miles on the odometer.
