One of the most iconic cars from recent cinematic history is now on the market. Although it's not exactly in pristine status, it could still fetch a princely sum.

Just three months ago, RM Sotheby's auctioned off one of the two Lamborghinis featured in the film "Wolf of Wall Street". Good fortune was on its side, as it came through filming unscathed. Now, it's joined by its companion, the one that was intentionally wrecked for the movie.

The car is set to take center stage at an auction slated for November 25, 2023, in Abu Dhabi. Organized by Bonhams, the auction house estimates the wreckage could fetch around 1.5 to 2 million dollars. That's quite a sum for a Countach, even a wrecked one.

In spite of its condition, this is no ordinary car. It arrived on the movie set intact, only for it to be completely demolished by Leonardo Di Caprio. Not satisfied with the extent of the damage, director Martin Scorsese perpetuated the wreckage, employing a flatbed truck for added effect.

It's worth mentioning that the auction's lucky winner will receive more than just the car. Included in the package are several movie set accessories, such as the director's chair, guard attire worn by Di Caprio during the scene, two crew sweatshirts, DVDs of the film, and autographs from key figures involved.
