Auction: The Wolf of Wall Street Lamborghini Countach

The Mobile Icon of Wall Street is the main object of RM Sotheby’s upcoming auction in New York. During Sotheby’s Luxury Week on December 8, 2023, the dream car will come to New York and find a new proud owner during an exclusive boutique auction.

The 1989 Lamborghini Countach 25th Anniversary, which starred in Martin Scorsese’s 2013 film The Wolf of Wall Street, is an automotive icon in the world of film. The Lamborghini is one of the most memorable vehicles in modern film history, having transcended the boundaries of its own automotive heritage. With only 12 examples in this specification (estimated value: $1,500,000-2,000,000), it is a rare specimen. Scorsese’s “The Wolf of Wall Street” used not one, but two Countach sports cars in similar configurations. For the most memorable scene, a nighttime drive with a drunken DiCaprio, a second Countach was recreated with lifelike damage. The one to be auctioned, the movie hero’s car, remained pristine and undamaged. With its star appearance, this cinematic Countach is undeniably world famous.

Gord Duff, Global Head of Auctions, RM Sotheby’s, stated, “The ‘Wolf’ Countach, along with the other cars that will be on offer, perfectly embodies what we set out to accomplish when we decided to host a sale during Sotheby’s Luxury Week. Scorsese, DiCaprio, Lamborghini, and New York—all make for an incredible pedigree. The sale will feature other similar cars—unique, highly collectible, with a degree of provenance, low mileage, or one-off specifications. Our team has a great track record of curating boutique sales such as this, and we look forward to showcasing this during Luxury Week.”
