The Green Hornet: Hands-on with the non-equine Black Beauty
Sony didn't need an excuse to get the Green Hornet's fabulous car, the Black Beauty, out for the assembled masses at CES 2011, so neither do we. Here are some photos.
Movie and TV cars are the best kind of automobile. They go fast, have rocket launchers and can sometimes even speak. At its CES press conference, Sony introduced Seth Rogen, Jay Chou and the car from the forthcoming superhero movie The Green Hornet. The car is called the Black Beauty, although we can think of a certain horse that might object to the use of the definite article there.
Still, the car looks pretty sweet, even in the mashed-up form we saw it in. There's a lot of damage caused by some sort of shoot-out and we have to say, we think it looks cooler a little roughed-up than it does in its gleaming original design.
There's plenty of tech here too, including a Sony sat-nav system, and about nine different weapons designed to kick seven bells out of anyone stupid enough to cross its path.
Anyway, we're not here to talk, we're here to show, so browse the photos to see the car in more detail.
