The film The Wolf of Wall Street, which was directed by Martin Scorsese and starred Leonardo DiCaprio, went to the cinema screens ten years ago, but this year we are reminded of it again by major auction companies, which are gradually offering Lamborghini Countach 25th cars in their auctions Anniversary used during filming.
The bright white Lamborghini became famous for the scene when Leonardo DiCaprio in the role of Jordan Belfort gets behind the wheel under the influence of various narcotic substances, which, despite his perception, has a significant effect on his driving style and, above all, on the condition of the iconic sports car.
Two cars were used for the filming of the scene, one of which was preserved in perfect condition, the other you can see in the pictures.
RM Sotheby’s announced the auction of the undamaged car back in early August, but now Bonhams has announced the sale of the damaged car during the November 25 auction in Abu Dhabi.
The Lamborghini from the famous scene The Wolf of Wall Street is for sale
While the undamaged car was on loan for filming and appeared on screen for just 11 seconds, the damaged car was seen for 3 minutes and 11 seconds.
An interesting fact is that director Scorsese was not satisfied with the damage to the car after the stunt scenes, so he had the tow truck crash into it several more times to make the damage more noticeable.
At first glance, the car is therefore in a very poor condition, but it is still one of a total of 658 pieces of the Countach 25th Anniversary model. Additionally, it should be one of only 12 imported to the US with Bianco Polo white paint and a matching interior color.
Considering the rarity of the car and its unforgettable role, it is not surprising that the sale price is expected to be in the range of 1.5 to 2 million dollars, which translates to roughly 34.9 to 46.5 million crowns.
In addition to the car itself, the winner of the auction will also receive the costume in which DiCaprio played the famous role, a director’s chair, a film flap signed by DiCaprio, Margot Robbie and Scorsese, two sweatshirts of the crew, two DVDs of the film and a documentary about the authenticity of the car from the production company.
