"This is the land of Opportunity..."

You now have the ability to own, what is now without a doubt - - The Most Visible Alfa Romeo In The World. This Alfa Romeo Spider Veloce Quadrifoglio was filmed by one of the greatest motion picture Directors of our time, Martin Scorsese, for the Worldwide Smash Hit movie THE WOLF OF WALL STREET. This special, one-of-a-kind and near-mint Pininfarina Quadrifoglio appears not only in the Movie - - but also in the award-winning and massively popular TWOWS/Kanye West Promotional Trailer; appeared in the second biggest televised Awards show (The Golden Globes); appears in other Entertainment and News television shows such as Entertainment Tonight and CNN; and is visible on a daily/worldwide basis via mass media websites covering this hit film (NBC, CNN, Los Angeles Times, Access Hollywood, The Hollywood Reporter, The Huffington Post, Barron's, The Guardian, Daily Mail, etc., etc., etc.).

Scorsese uses this Alfa Romeo as an automotive icon feature shot representing 1987 Wall Street while filming him in scenes featuring Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill and Jon Bernthal. In the award-winning and now world famous Kanye West/TWOWS movie trailer, Scorsese and Paramount use this Alfa as the main visual under Leonardo DiCaprio's debut character voice-over: "My name is Jordan Belfort." During last month's Golden Globes Awards telecast on NBC, this Alfa was featured as the "very first scene" in the nominated Best Picture video presented by Jonah Hill to a televised audience of 22 million US viewers (250 million viewers worldwide). Over the past few weeks, this Alfa was seen on the CNN show Piers Morgan Live featuring a one hour interview with Leonardo DiCaprio's character, the controversial Jordan Belfort. And the behind-the-scenes video of the actual filming of the Alfa Quad/Leonardo DiCaprio movie scene was shown in the Los Angeles Times.

The Wolf of Wall Street is currently playing at over 6,000 movie theaters worldwide and is now Martin Scorsese's biggest grossing film ever @ well over $300 Million Worldwide Box Office. The Wolf of Wall Street is nominated for 5 Oscars, including Best Picture. And now this vintage Alfa Romeo is simply like No Other in the world.

Through visiblity in the hit movie; pre-release trailers/continuing high-visiblity marketing; and the worldwide internet media coverage; this Alfa Romeo has garnered at least 500 MILLION visible impressions worldwide - - and still counting (all numbers are completely quantifiable).

This Quadrifoglio was filmed in Fall, 2012 in scenes featuring Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill at locations on Wall Street, Westchester NY and Northern New Jersey. It is one of only 4 "exotic/collector cars" featured in the movie.

THE WOLF OF WALL STREET is nominated for FIVE Academy Awards, including: Best Picture, Best Director (Scorsese), Best Actor (Leonardo DiCaprio), and Best Supporting Actor (Jonah Hill). This is your opportunity to own a continuing classic, one-of-a-kind Italian "Divo" collectible.

2nd Owner has pampered and babied this New York City-based "Rock Star" since 2000. Serviced by the finest Alfa heritage service centers in NY, it runs flawlessly and turns more heads/draws more attention here than any car on the road - - bar none. Not a day goes by when he doesn't receive smiles, accolades, compliments and cell phone/Instagram photos taken by the general public -- even while cruising on the highway!

Current vehicle condition: Mechanicals/Electrical's/Fuel Inj. all 100%. Interior, seats, carpets, instruments: all 100%. Engine and Clutch rebuilt within past 3 years. 5 year old Pirelli's in great shape. A/C is cold! Soft top fabric is dark black and still great, however rear window has some scuffs. Leather Boot is fine, however needs hardware refastening to leather (best done when soft top is eventually replaced). Factory hardtop has small corner crack from prior owner (see pix). Passenger side exterior "runner" has a 3" dia factory convex bump out (classic Alfa sheet metal issue, see pix). Front emblem is 1/4 dented "in" (Owner will try to fix prior to sale, see pix). Small, old windshield crack (3/8" in center" from first owner, not noticable). Original Radio works/Cassette doesn't. Invisible rear crack in teflon gearshift handle (Owner will try to fix prior to sale). Windshield washer motor is down (Owner will try to fix prior to sale). Passenger side door lock cylinder is broken (Owner will try to fix prior to sale). "Trying to Fix" means "if parts are immediately available" (these are all minor, relatively inexpensive repairs/parts fortunately). Basically, 99% of the car is mint....the above 1% are simple fixes, general wear-and-tear stuff for New York City year 'round, garaged cars.

Winning bidder to handle and pay for all transportation and insurance requirements (for domestic or international delivery points). Owner will require 10-14 days post-auction to prep and detail car for final transport to winning bidder. Balance of payment due at time of final shipping/transport. Feel free to email with any questions.

(attached photos include: movie set photos, movie validation/certified paperwork, media captures, the personalized Clio/Grand Key Art Award awarded to the first movie trailer; interior condition and exterior beauty shots. Note: all media captures are taken directly from the trailers and live broadcasts appearing on that media outlets coverage (NBC News, The Hollywood Reporter, Access Hollywood, Entertainment Tonight, The Golden Globes Awards telecast, and multiple International media outlets).

If this were any normal Series 3 Spider, we’d be looking at a $10,000 to $15,000 car here, given the condition. Is star power worth more than double in this case, then? That’s debatable, given this isn’t the first time this car has appeared in an online auction. It certainly would be interesting to see where this would go with no reserve. Given this car appeared in a movie regarding the investment world, maybe it's worth taking a risk over the normal value for a slice of movie history?

    Worth It! Everytime I see the movie trailer, or see the highlights of the movie on TV , I see this car being shown. If it’s good enough for Martin Scorsese, it’s good enough for me!!! Should be worth 5x more than this price actually…it’s that HOT! ($10-15k…..gets you a 2006 Ford Sedan…..jeez)

  3. GianniB says:

    40K for an otherwise unremarkable S3 Spider? Good luck with that.

  4. Bart says:

    @Gianni: WTF are you talking about????? “unremarkable”??? Did you read the ad for the car? ?.. When was the last time YOUR Alfa or any of your others — or your middle-aged friends from your local Italian car show were filmed by Scorsese and DiCaprio??????? And featured on TV, Movies, etc..by the master Scorsese???? Typical Italian car owner Sour Grapes..hahahahahah

  5. Henry says:

    Hey Bart, why don’t you admit that you’re the seller of the car and be done with it. If you’re not the seller, then why don’t you buy it if it’s such a good deal.

  6. bart says:

    Who the heck would buy this for a “Deal” ?? Its a trophy car for whoever wants that. And I cant afford it for what they are asking. And I LOVE Martin Scorsese…Did your car ever end up in his movie? …naaah….Dont think so…..Keep dreaming.

  7. Mike I. says:

    Bart is obviously the seller of this vehicle. He is delusional enough to think that a cameo of it in a movie will triple its value. In the unlikely event is not the seller, why doesn’t he pony up for this movie poster “investment”.

  8. Gianni says:

    I almost feel sorry for the seller. Unfortunately for him, the only people that think paying 3x the market for an S3 spider is a good idea are 11 year old celebrity worshipers like Bart, who is rich in childish insults, but poor in actual cash.

    If you want a spider, buy a Duetto or early S2.

    Bart,

    Steven Spielberg once passed gas while driving my 1978 Chevette. I’ll let you buy it for $15k.
