My favourite movie car 1988 Lamborghini Countach 25th Anniversary edition

The 1980s: a decade defined by excess. Martin Scorsese’s film The Wolf of Wall Street encapsulates this era to a T. Based on infamous stockbroker Jordan Belfort’s (played by Leonardo Di Caprio) memoir of the same name, most of the events portrayed in this Oscar-nominated movie did take place … Unbelievable, yes, but true.


For the now-infamous car-crash scene, instead of the Mercedes-Benz which actually bore the brunt of Jordan Belfort’s errant driving, the producers applied some artistic licence and opted for a white Lamborghini Countach 25th Anniversary edition.

Restyled by then up-and coming Horacio Pagani, the commemorative Countach was built in celebration of the Italian marque’s silver jubilee. The wedge-shaped ’80s poster car is powered by an atmospheric 5,2-litre V12 and has a top speed of 295 km/h. If you were wondering, the raging bull wrecked in the scene was very much real and not a replica. Gasp!
