Here Are The $3 Million Cars Leonardo DiCaprio Will Drive In “The Great Gatsby”

dicaprio

There’s no word yet on the official budget of Baz Luhrmann‘s “The Great Gatsby,” but now we know it’ll include a pretty ridiculous car allowance.

Producers on the film, which stars Leonardo DiCaprio, bought two insanely expensive vintage cars for the film: a 1929 Duesenberg and a 1929 Packard.

The cars, which are worth up to $3 million each, were purchased from an auto museum in Illinois.

Of course, they could have saved a little cash on the Duesenberg by hitting up Jay Leno for a favour — he owns one.
