Bonhams to auction replica Ferrari 250GT Spyder California made for Ferris Bueller’s Day Off


Although many of us dream of owning our very own Ferrari, very few of us can actually afford to convert this dream into a reality. Making do with the next-best-thing is the only choice we have. For all you folks who have no shame to settle for the next best thing or more specifically a replica of their favorite wheels, here is an offer just for you. Bonhams is all set to auction the replica Ferrari, created for the 1986 hit teen movie Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, at its Collectors’ Motor Cars and Automobilia auction on April 19. The comedy film follows Ferris (who decides to bunk school for a day of fun) and his pals as they borrow the replica Ferrari 250GT Spyder California from one of their fathers. Only around 100 genuine 250GT Spyder Californias were created by Ferrari between 1958 and 1963. Existing examples of the car are ”very rare and expensive” so Paramount chose to commission and build a replica for filming purposes. Described to be in “a ready to drive” condition, this car is expected to fetch £30,000 ($45,000) to £40,000 ($60,000) at the auction.
