Crashed Lamborghini Countach from Wolf of Wall Street auctioned in movie-worn state

Later this month in Abu Dhabi, a wrecked supercar linked to Jordan Belfort’s extravagant lifestyle in the controversial blockbuster will go under the hammer at Bonham’s auction. Despite its undriveable state, the auction house’s estimated seven-figure price tag isn’t discouraging potential buyers.

In the film, the supercar shares the screen with Leonardo DiCaprio, who plays the disgraced real-life financier, prominently featured in the notorious Quaaludes scene. This particular segment exhibits the actor’s inebriated character struggling to handle the Lamborghini, leading to comedic mishaps. Although the car reappears later in the movie, it is portrayed as completely wrecked.

Reportedly, the “hero car” up for auction at Bonham’s is a 1989 Countach, primarily utilized during the movie’s production. This specific model, a 25th-anniversary edition, represents the epitome of sophistication for the vehicle.

Sporting a Bianco Polo finish with a corresponding Bianco leather interior, the supercar boasts a 5.2-liter V-12 engine. Despite enduring most of the filming unscathed, director Scorsese instructed the production crew to further damage the car using a flatbed truck before its final appearance on screen.

Despite its dilapidated condition, Bonham’s anticipates the “The Wolf of Wall Street” Countach to fetch between $1.5 million and $2 million at the “On the Grid” auction on November 25, just before the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. Meanwhile, Sotheby’s plans to auction the functional backup Countach in New York at a comparable price.
