Ferris Bueller Ferrari up for auction at Bonhams
No, it didn't actually slip off a sharp cliff near Cameron's modernist house - the Ferrari that featured in Ferris Bueller's Day Off survived and is now up for auction at Bonhams.
It's a Ferrari 250GT Spyder California, but not a real one - only 100 of the original were made between 1958 and 1963, making it super-rare, so John Hughes and Paramount actually had a replica made for filiming. Which is the one being sold off now. Just think, you too could be careering around the city in that same car - but you'll not have to worry about the mileage or your parents.
Not cheap though, with the estimate at £30,000 - 40,000. But the auctioneers do point out that the car is 'ready to drive', so no more expense once you get it, aside from the hefty insurance premium. The auction is part of the Bonhams Collectors’ Motor Cars and Automobilia auction, which takes place at 11am on 19th April 2010 at the RAF Museum, Hendon.
