New movie with an XRTi

Post by mysticfireXR » Thu Apr 19, 2007 2:01 pm

Someone is selling a mono-black XR on ebay that was used in the upcoming movie "We own the night" I guess it will come out later this year or early next year. Anyone heard anything about this?
I'm looking forward to seeing it.

Hey- I can't wait-- there might be a new appreciation for the car out there, depending upon how it's represented.

Well it looks like they went through the trouble of new paint and interior. At least it won't be protrayed as a jalopy.

I was wondering why the hell they had this car in the movie too, then I realized it's supposed to take place in 1989. :lol:

And they say its "Jacquin Phoenix's personal car for the movie", I'm not sure what that means...

That means it was his personal go-kart to get from one scene to the other, off-set. :lol:

Could you imagine how cool it would be if a major movie featured a Merkur as the main character's car? Whoa, people might actually know what a Merkur is after this!
