Benedict Radcliffe's wire art Koenig Lamborghini Countach – Click above for image gallery

In 2008, UK artist Benedict Radcliffe created a wireframe Koenig Lamborghini Countach because he needed something to outdo the wireframe Subaru WRX. Using 160 feet of 10-millimeter steel tubing, the see-through coupe was parked on the street in London for people to generally gawk at, which they did in the expected large numbers.

Now The Times reports that the piece is for sale, allowing you to gawk at it in your living room for the low, low price of £40,000 ($64,828 U.S.). You'll need a fair bit of room since the artwork is 14 feet long and six feet wide, and probably isn't all that light. The extra effort could be worth it – when else will you get the chance to tell someone you bought a car from Wonder Woman? You can get a closer look at the wireframe Lambo in the gallery of images below.

      I might believe 1600 feet of 10 mm tube, but not 160.

      That is so freakin' cool. Saw pics of this Lambo and the WRX a while back and it's damn awesome.

      Forty thousand quid for a giant orange coat hanger bent into the shape of a Lamborghini? You could probably find a half-decent (real, running) LP400S Countach for sale at that price (or less) somewhere in the world (try Dubai) and have a real work of art to display in your garage, leaking transmission seals and all.

      OH I dig it, weird when I look at it cause I think it's a car. Sounds expensive, but who cares if someone wants it.

      Cost and politics aside (since I'm sure there are forums you can go to discuss this), these sorts of sculptures actually look fantastic in the metal. I was at a public exhibition recently and they had a similar thing with some wireframe Vespas and they look out of this world - like a photoshop job but not.

      Jeremy, Richard, and James should have put this in their art show when they were at the MIMA gallery
