Of the many painful moments in The Hangover, watching the cadre of best men destroy a beautiful 1965 Mercedes-Benz 220SE Convertible over the course of the film was perhaps the worst.

Between Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis bouncing the vehicle off of traffic and the sides of a concrete tunnel and allowing a live tiger to chew on the upholstery, this classic piece of German engineering suffered greatly at the hands of the movie's script. But this is Hollywood, where nothing is as it seems. As it turns out, the film used three convertibles and two coupes chopped to look like convertibles for the filming.

One of the convertibles and one coupe received the raw end of most of the damage, leaving three survivors. The two drop tops were then auctioned off for charity, and now one is up for sale on eBay Motors. According to the seller, this vehicle was used for most of the interior filming, and while its cabin was thoroughly destroyed during the making of the movie, it was restored to its original perfection after shooting wrapped. The car is supposedly in solidly operable – but not concours – condition. Looks like a great driver to us. The minimum bid sits at $85,000 with a $95,000 Buy-It-Now price, meaning you're paying a hefty premium for the car's movie provenance. Head over to eBay Motors as you ponder adding it to your wolf pack.

      Nice looking car but that seems like a high premium for a movie appearance. It's not the Bullitt Mustang, Batmobile or Black Beauty.

      This thing is f#ckin' bomb. Still my favorite classic Benz that you can still somewhat find is the 300 SL gullwing.

      The first order of business is to take off those cheesy wheelwell moldings.

        You take those off and you might as well drop your price for it down to about 10 grand if your lucky enough to get that out of it.

      Not a bad price assuming the auction is legal and doesn't drive up the final cost with fake bids under false names. As for the movie, the best part was the end when it showed the pics of what happened. Good pretense, but took way too long to get to the catch. I didnt see part 2 but heard the jokes were recycled.

      Even though it was a kit car, I still think that Cameron trashing his dad's Ferrari in Ferris Bueller's Day Off was more traumatic than the Mercedes in The Hangover. There was more suspense with the Ferrari

      Actually 85 isn't that bad for this car. They were going for that in the '80's or more. Drive it one time and you'll forget what it looks like outside and marvel at the limo ride. However, I happen to care for the look myself.

      I'd rather have Herbie the Love Bug, or the Batmobile, or the Munster Koach!

      This is my car - Love driving it every chance I get, but with a 4 year old and 2 year old twins it sits more than it drives......Cars and Coffee in Irvine used to be a weekly event, now i'm lucky to get there once every few months :-(
