The famous white Lamborghini Countach from Leonardo DiCaprio’s The Wolf of Wall Street is up for auction and is expected to fetch around $2 million

The white-colored Lamborghini Countach driven by Leonardo DiCaprio in Martin Scorsese’s 2013 hit The Wolf of Wall Street is about to go on sale in New York and is expected to fetch around $2 million. This particular example is a 1989 Lamborghini Countach 25th Anniversary edition that features a ‘Bianco Polo’ white paint on the outside and a ‘Bianco Countach’ white leather interior. Other than being one of the most recognizable movie cars of all time, what makes this Countach truly special is that only 25 examples of the Italian supercar in the same spec made it to the United States, making it an exceptionally rare classic car.

In the movie, the Countach features prominently in the famous scene where Leonardo DiCaprio, who plays Jordan Belfort, literally crawls to the supercar in a heavily inebriated state and struggles to drive it back home. In case you’re wondering how is the Lamborghini still in perfect condition when it totaled in the movie, then let me tell you that there were two cars used while filming the movie. An identical model was used alongside this Countach, which is dramatically destroyed when DiCaprio crashes into everything in his path on his way back to home.
