An Entrepreneur Who Inspired A 'Wolf Of Wall Street' Character Sold His Crazy Tribeca Condo For $US43.5 Million

Alan Wilzig, a real-life inspiration for a character in Martin Scorsese’s “The Wolf of Wall Street,” has sold his Tribeca condo for $US43.5 million without a broker, The Real Deal reports.

The entrepreneur and semi-professional race car driver posted the home on Zillow.com as well as Facebook.

“Feel free to share this with your luxury real estate friends for anyone interested in a Manhattan super-residence,” Wilzig posted on his Facebook account, according to The Real Deal. “All brokers protected. I have no problem paying or sharing in paying a commission(s) — but I’m not willing at the present time to grant an exclusive with any one broker or firm. (Especially since a dozen of my good friends are all NYC brokers.)”

The 7,500-square-foot townhouse at 3 Hubert Street has a 2,500-square-foot roof deck, backyard, six bedrooms, and an attached garage where Wilzig currently stores his insane amount of motorcycle memorabilia. It also has bulletproof windows and a lighting system that would give Miami clubs a run for their money.

In the Scorsese film, Wilzig inspired the character at the pool party scene who introduced Leonardo Di Caprio’s character to his future wife. Wilzig originally took issue with his portrayal, lamenting that his red Ferrari Testarossa was left out of the scene.

Entrepreneur and semi-professional race car driver Alan Wilzig managed to sell his townhouse for $US43.5 million -- with no broker.

In total, the home has 7,500 square feet of space.

It also has a 2,500-square-foot roof deck.

The interior of the home looks like something out of the 'Wolf of Wall Street' (a movie in which he inspired a minor character).

The white couches, pink aquarium, and motorcycle really scream '80s glamour.

Speaking of motorcycles, Wilzig is obsessed with them.

In the condo's garage, he stores his car and entire motorcycle collection.

Which, needless to say, is extensive.

Back inside the home, the rooms are lit with pink and blue lights and the stair's handrails are covered in alligator skin. Seriously.

The master bedroom also has some mood lighting as well as a walk-in closet.

The bathrooms are equally decked out.

The home sold along with Wilzig's tanning bed.

The kitchen has bar seating, a chalkboard wall, and huge counter space.

The media room is bathed in an eerie green glow.

Other amenities include a mobile phone-signal-boosting system, ballistic polymer wrapped windows, and an electronic command center.

All in all, a pretty eccentric house designed by a pretty eccentric guy.
