Renault CB Coupe de Ville
In 1912, William Carter bought a Renault Town Car and was planning to transport it from Southampton, England to New York City on the RMS Titanic. Carter was saved but the car sunk in the Atlantic. A replica was requested by James Cameron and 20th Century Fox for their motion picture Titanic. They looked for Carter's original documents for the vehicle and the car was recreated almost exactly.
