Incredible, That's some pretty amazing stuff.

Hard to believe there is only one that is fully functional in existence.

I wonder what happened to the one from Kelly's Heroes ? From what I can see that was the real thing.

No,the one(s) in Kelly's Hero's were built using T-34's.Look at the tracks and suspension,definately not early or later model Tigers.The most obvious visual difference between a real Tiger I and the reproductions are the suspension, which do not feature the Tiger I's overlapping wheel design.
The same Tiger/T-34's were used in Saving Private Ryan.The two Tiger I replicas from Saving Private Ryan were stored at The Tank Museum in Bovington, England for a time, but they have apparently been sold and removed from the museum. It looks like one of the tanks may have found its way to the United States, as one was reportedly used for a reenactment of the Battle of Carentan in Monterey, California by the World War II Research and Preservation Society. An article on the reenactment indicates that the Tiger tank is owned by Joe Fazio of San Francisco.
