Sly Stallone

I'm Getting My 'Cobra' Car Back!

3/30/2011 8:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

After 17 years apart, Sylvester Stallone will finally be reunited with the legendary classic car featured in his movie "Cobra" ... after it was stolen out of his garage back in 1994 ... TMZ has learned.

We broke the story -- in 2009, Sly learned his custom built 1950 Mercury was about to be auctioned off by a company that provides "on-camera vehicles" for movies.

Sly never directly accused the company of stealing his ride ... he just wanted the damn thing back -- so he filed a lawsuit to regain possession.

Now, TMZ has learned, Stallone and the company reached a settlement ... under which Sly will regain ownership of the whip ... estimated to be worth more than $250,000.

It's unclear if any money changed hands ... but who cares, Sly's getting his "Cobra" car back!!!

That's the ugliest car I've ever seen. There's no way that battleship is worth a quarter mil.

LOL @ #1. I'm curious if you've actually /seen/ "Cobra" but that's beside the point. It's actually a pretty badass ride. You mean to tell me you wouldn't own it? :-P

^ Don't be silly - Of course I haven't seen "Cobra." Does the 'popularity' of the film make that jalopy more valuable? From what I can see it needs a paint job, detail and new suspension - and that's just for starters. It's as old as Sly.

Yeah great...now instead of someone getting to actually enjoy it, steroid disfigured Rocky can park it in his garage where a staff member will dust it once a month and Bimbo's awaiting their Sly protein shake might get a chance to touch it.

Why was there never a Cobra sequel? Marion Cobretti is the man!

No one should have to pay for having their titled property returned. If anyone should pay, it's the other party for purchasing something the seller did not have clear title to. Cops - put down the doughnuts and go catch some perps.

The Middle East is on fire, Japan is imploding, but it's all good because Sly is getting his Cobra back.

That little shimp, could that old man see over the steering wheel to drive or does he need a wife 1/2 his age to drive for him.

Cobra is so bad you can't help but watch it if you come across it on cable.
Last time I saw it, I was seriously considering if it was a parody.
