The Great Gatsby (2013)

For 2013 adaptation of the classic F. Scott Fitzgerald novel “The Great Gatsby,” director Baz Luhrmann strayed a bit from the book.  While Fitgerald described Gatsby as driving a 1922 Rolls-Royce, Luhrmann elected to go with a 1934 Duesenberg.  The car is actually a Duesenberg II, a modern reproduction of the original.  The reproduction was used for financial and practical reasons.  This model can be seen being driven by Leonardo DiCaprio in the film.  The car can be found on display at the Peterson Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, California.
