The Iconic Lamborghini Countach Featured in the Blockbuster Film is Expected to Fetch Around $2 Million
The famous Lamborghini Countach 25th Anniversary, known for its appearance in the Hollywood blockbuster “The Wolf of Wall Street,” is set to go under the hammer. RM Sotheby’s will host the auction in New York, and car enthusiasts and collectors alike are anticipating a lively bidding war for this cinematic icon.
The Lamborghini’s Legendary Status
The “Wolf of Wall Street,” starring Leonardo DiCaprio as the notorious broker Jordan Belfort, created a buzz when it hit the big screen ten years ago. However, for car lovers, one scene stands out above all others—the moment when DiCaprio’s character wrecks a Lamborghini Countach 25th Anniversary, a rare model replicated only 650 times.
Legend has it that two identical cars were used for filming, and incredibly, even the destroyed one was an authentic Countach, not a replica. The surviving example is the one that will be auctioned, bringing this piece of Hollywood history to a lucky buyer.
