An iconic Rolls Royce driven by Hollywood actor Robert Redford in The Great Gatsby has emerged for sale and is expected to fetch a seven-figure sum.<br />
<br />
The 1928 Rolls Royce Phantom I Ascot Sport Phaeton is one of the most iconic vehicles in cinematic and literary history - a symbol of the American Dream and the Roaring Twenties.<br />
 <br />
The opulent car was driven by Redford, starring as Jay Gatsby, in the 1974 film, which captures the extravagance and elegance of the era.<br />
<br />
After a search to find the perfect car for the movie, when it was selected this vehicle was repainted in the creamy yellow colour and its interior was dyed green to match the description in E Scott Fitzgerald's famous novel.
