CURATED: THE WOLF OF WALL STREET COUNTACH
From notebook doodles and posters on teenage bedroom walls to manifested daydreams, cars represent moments in time for us all. And, beyond their role as symbolic time capsules of culture and zeitgeist, they live as art.
A prime example: The Wolf of Wall Street Countach.
CURATED is taking a stance, and disrupting the modern art landscape in the process.. This car is more than a car, it is worthy of a spot at The Smithsonian and can hold its own beside modern art, at Sothebys.
Imprinted in our collective memory through the immortal scene featuring Leonardo DiCaprio’s character, Jordan Belfort, maneuvering his white Lamborghini under the influence, this “hero” car is the only example to remain unscathed from its on-screen journey. The 1989 25th Anniversary Lamborghini Countach, Chassis #KLA12722, was hired for filming in 2012 where it transcended the boundaries of its own automotive legacy and embraced the realm of timeless cinematic artistry.
One of 12 USA specification Countach 25th examples in Bianco Polo over Bianco, the car became an emblem of multiple generations, and an iconic example that intertwines the legacies of Lamborghini and Hollywood.
Passionately asserting this car should go to auction, under the classification of art, John is making a statement to the art world. Believing and advocating for the value and importance of vintage European supercars before anyone else, he is trailblazing once again. This time, John’s not speaking only to the next generation of car collectors, but to the next generation of art collectors, as well.
