This ‘Wolf Of Wall Street’ Lamborghini Countach Could Fetch $2 Million At Auction
The gorgeous white supercar driven by Leonardo DiCaprio’s Jordan Belfort can now be yours.
The ultra-limited edition Lamborghini Countach driven by Leonardo DiCaprio’s Jordan Belfort in The Wolf Of Wall Street is headed to an upcoming RM Sotheby’s sale that’s fittingly located at the auction house’s global headquarters in Manhattan, just a few miles away from NYC’s Financial District.
While a Ferrari Testarossa and an R129 Mercedes SL also feature in the Martin Scorsese-directed recounting of Belfort’s wild and illicit career as a Wall Street stockbroker, the Countach 25th Anniversary Edition—one of just 23 white-over-white versions built for the U.S.—is undeniably the movie’s automotive star.
The destruction of the pearly wedge-shaped supe at the hands of a borderline-incapacitated Belfort is perhaps the movie’s most memorable set piece, after all.
One might assume that the mangled vehicle seen on-screen was a replica of the real six-figure car, but according to Supercar Blondie’s blog, Scorsese really did wreck one of two Countach 25th Anniversary Edition examples, as a stand-in wouldn’t “crumple” correctly. After production wrapped, the doors, lights, hood, latches and glass were auctioned off. This one was left undamaged.
Details on provenance and specs aren’t yet available from RM Sotheby’s, but the 25th Anniversary Edition is the apogee of Countach production.
In 1988, Horacio Pagani, the legendary Lamborghini designer who would go on to create some of the most elite and luxurious vehicles ever made under his eponymous marque, was tasked with redesigning the existing Countach 5000 QV’s bodywork in celebration of Lamborghini’s 25th anniversary.
Approximately 500 changes ensued. The nose was raised and air intakes were reshaped to channel more air to the front brakes, while the rear bumper was dramatically enlarged. The air intakes located just behind the doors received thicker strakes that were color-matched to the body, and the 15-inch two-piece forged alloy wheels were widened.
Under the rear engine cover is the largest-displacement V12 (5.2 liters) equipped during the Countach’s tenure as the flagship Raging Bull. This upgrade, along with the implementation of fuel injectors instead of carburetors, made for the fastest Countach ever (discounting the Sian-based “Countach” released in 2021).
According to Bloomberg, the Wolf of Wall Street Countach 25th Anniversary Edition is expected to fetch up to $2 million when it hits the block in December.
