This white Lamborghini Countach 25th Anniversary Edition became famous in modern cinematic history thanks to its memorable appearance in The Wolf of Wall Street, directed by Martin Scorsese, starring Leonardo DiCaprio.

The sports car has been meticulously preserved in the same condition as it was last seen on the big screen and is now on sale with a reference price starting from $1.5 million.
The Lamborghini Countach 25th Anniversary Edition was introduced in 1988. It was the final evolution of the Countach line, which had been in production since 1974.

The car featured extensive restyling by Horacio Pagani, who would later found Pagani Automobili. The redesign aimed to improve the car’s aerodynamics and cooling but also gave the car a much more aggressive look to appeal to the tastes of the 1980s.

The changes included new side air intakes, a redesigned engine cover, new front air dam, and rear bumper.

The most memorable example of the Countach 25th Anniversary was the 1989 model that appeared in the 2013 film “The Wolf of Wall Street,” based on the life and times of Jordan Belfort, played by Leonardo DiCaprio.

The car was to be destroyed for the film as it featured in a notable scene with DiCaprio, who tried to drive it under the influence of alcohol and drugs. The car has been carefully preserved in the same conditions it was in for this scene, and now it is being put up for sale.

Two examples of the 25th Anniversary Countach were used in the movie, the car you see in this article was the hero car and was on the screen for 3 minutes and 11 seconds, it suffered damage as shown in the film. The other car was on screen for approximately 16 seconds in two shots and did not suffer any notable damage.

The car is being put up for sale by Bonhams as part of their On the Grid auction in Abu Dhabi, scheduled for November 25th. The car is priced at $1,500,000 – $2,000,000 USD, and if this price range is achieved, it could very well be the highest price ever paid for a non-operational Lamborghini Countach.
