According to TMZ, Stallone kept the car after the movie was finished. However, in 2009 a company tried to auction off the car, which in 1994 Stallone had reported stolen from his garage. Stallone and his legal counsel filed a lawsuit to regain possession of the car, estimated to be worth $250,000. In 2011, Stallone and the company reached a settlement, and the actor was reunited with the Monterrey coupe after 17 years.
