Have a similar car that you would like to put up for an auction?

This evocation of a Voisin Type C28 was created as a movie prop for use in the filming of Sahara, a 2005 movie starring Matthew McConaughey and Penélope Cruz. Based on a novel by best-selling author Clive Cussler, the film was a continuation of his Dirk Pitt action stories. Cussler was a noted car enthusiast and it is believed that his real Voisin may have inspired this recreation.

The car was built by the film’s picture vehicle coordinator, Steve Lamonby, on a custom 4WD chassis and is powered by a 4.2-litre Jaguar engine through a Rover transmission. Its patinated finish is festooned with details from its use, including faux bullet holes. The Voisin Cocotte radiator mascot was even replicated, showing an attention to detail uncommon on vehicles of this type.
