This specific 1989 25th Anniversary Bianco Polo Countach is one of the duo featured in the movie. However, while its counterpart faced unfortunate damages during filming, this model remained unscathed. The car's pristine Bianco interior, coupled with its U.S.-spec bumpers, places its potential value at a whopping $2 million, according to some specialists. The whereabouts of the damaged twin remains a mystery, and no efforts to refurbish or sell it have surfaced post-production.
Under its hood, this Countach boasts a 5.2-liter V12 engine, delivering an impressive 449 horsepower and 370 pound-feet of torque in its prime. It might not boast groundbreaking performance by today's metrics – clocking about 5 seconds to reach 62 mph – but the Countach isn't solely about numbers.
Since its launch in the early 1970s, the Countach has captured the hearts and minds of automobile aficionados worldwide. Its distinctive design, further accentuated in the 25th Anniversary models by Horacio Pagani, remains iconic. And while U.S. safety regulations led to the addition of somewhat unsightly bumper guards, it does little to diminish the vehicle's awe-inspiring presence.
