The Most Expensive Movie Cars Ever Sold
There’s obviously something very special about seeing your car on the screen, because cars that have appeared in a movie tend to go for much more than the same car would if it hadn’t been associated with that movie.
The 1929 Duesenberg Model J was America’s answer to Rolls-Royce and was bought by everyone from royalty to gangsters and movie stars.
When car enthusiast King Alfonso XIII of Spain was overthrown during the revolution in Spain, he chose one his Deusenbergs, from his vast fleet, to take into exile with him. Just 480 Model Js were ever made and this particular one ended up in the 1934 Oscar-winning film The Gay Divorcee starring Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, fetching an auction price of over 2.3 million dollars.
