Sylvester Stallone Sues Car Company Over A Stolen Vehicle
Hollywood star Sylvester Stallone has sued the owner of a car company over a vehicle that he insists was stolen from him 15 years ago.
Stallone is demanding $3 million because the car company's website allegedly used his name and image to promote the auction without proper permission.
The ‘Rocky’ star claims the custom-built 1950 Mercury, which featured in his movie ‘Cobra’, was driven away from a storage garage in 1994. Stallone never saw the car again until recently.
The car is now in the possession of a collector who rents out vehicles for movies.
In the legal papers, filed in Los Angeles, Stallone claims he asked the car's current owner to hand over the keys but he has refused.
