lamborghini countach

ten years ago, richard moriarty picked up a black lamborghini countach for $60k.

he drove it for 10 years, but now, with a poor engine, and having to always have the car towed, he has retired it.

on his wall.

moriarty hired a 70-ton crane to lower the italian whip into the skylight of his living room. the countache will hang over a solid glass staircase leading to moriarty's wine cellar. The car will also plug into the home's electrical system so its inside lights can be switched on.

moriarty, who's family developed south coast plaza in southern california, has done other outlandish projects in previous homes, such as an indoor rifle shooting range, bowling alleys, and a 28 foot high interior waterfall. in his current newport mansion being constructed, moriarty is using $2million worth of steel and concrete to develop the home that will overlook all of newport's back bay. but this piece of art, is as he notes, "one of a kind."

but apparently, he isn't satisfied. "i want to stencil some tire marks on the wall," he said. "seriously."
