Among the many details that adorned ‘Once upon a time in … Hollywood’, one of the most striking was its magnificent vintage cars, which transported the public to 1969. Now, moviegoers can feel like Leonardo DiCaprio or Brad Pitt in the critically acclaimed Quentin Tarantino film, because both cars go up for auction.
The auction is organized by Prop Store, in a macro-event that will take place between August 26 and 27. Based in London and Los Angeles, bids can be done electronically, allowing fans from all over the world to aspire to win one of these vehicles.
Of course, it will not be cheap. DiCaprio’s pastel yellow Cadillac Coupe de Ville has an estimated starting price of $ 45,000 to $ 55,000. The Volkswagen Karmann Ghia that Pitt uses is priced at between $ 20,000 and $ 30,000. Luxurious movie cars that can make great collector’s pieces.
Not only are the cars used in ‘Once upon a time in … Hollywood’ going to be auctioned. Moviegoers will be able to bid on other objects from mythical films, such as the suit that Michael Corleone wore in Miami in ‘The Godfather’, the lightsaber hilt of Obi-Wan Kenobi in the ‘Star Wars’ saga or the helmet that Tom Cruise used in ‘Top Gun’.
There are also other items such as the camera that Alfred Hitchcock used to shoot ‘Vertigo’, Sylvester Stallone’s boxing gloves in ‘Rocky’, John Candy’s suit in ‘Spaceballs’ or one of the suits that Jennifer Lawrence wore in the saga ‘The Hunger Games’.
The most expensive item, according to Variety, is a miniature replica of the Nostromo spacecraft from ‘Alien the Eighth Passenger’, costing between $ 300,000 and $ 500,000. In total, there will be more than 850 objects that will go up for auction, with prices between 100 and 500,000 dollars. The auctions organized by Prop Store began in 1998, when the house was founded by Stephen Lane, collector and archivist.
