Ferrari 250 GT from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off For Sale

Ferrari 250 GT Spyder California

Although not a true blue Ferrari 250 GT, it is the replica used on the set of the movie Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. The car will be going up for auction in Britain next month and expect to bring in close to $65,000 USD. Had the car been an actual Ferrari 250 GT Spyder California that amount would have been much higher, so the price point is being set only because the replica was used in a popular 80’s film.

Consider the fact that Ferrari only made 100 250 GT’s between 1958 and 1963. The Ferrari 250 series cars were also credited with inspiring Lamborghini to start making sports cars, originally a tractor manufacturer. The story goes that Ferrucio Lamborghini owned 3 Ferrari 250 series cars, but was unhappy with frequent clutch problems. So he complained to Enzo Ferrari, which in turn simply insulted Ferrucio. Ferrucio Lamborghini pledge to build a better GT car than Ferrari and thus the legends were born.
