The replica of Ferrari Spyder California 250GT which featured on the Paramount hit movie 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off' (in 1986) will be sold on April 19, at the auction Bonhams Collectors' Motor Cars and Automobilia.
Just about 100 genuine Spyder California 250GT's were Ferrari made between 1958 - 1963. Quite expensive and rare are the existing examples, so Paramount wants to make and commission a replica model for filming actions.
This movie shows Ferris (Matthew Broderick) plus 2 of his friends there skipping for a day the high school, borrowing from his father the Spyder California. The car in the end crashes. The movie, starring this fabulous, iconic auto, was a great hit (grossing in America over 70million Dollars) and Broderick got nominated - Golden Globe Award.
The car, Pininfarina styled, was also a competition machine â€“ very capable, as demonstrated so well by Ginther/Hively, in March 1958, at the Sebring 12 Hours, winning their class, finishing up the 9th overall plus Grossman/Tavano that finished up 5th overall in June at Le Mans.
Bonhams says this example on the offer, that's estimated on auction for Â£30,000-40,000, now is ready for driving.
Here are other highlights on sale: Concours 1939 SS 2Â½-litre Jaguar 3-Position Drophead CoupÃ© (with a price of Â£90,000 â€“ 110,000), AC 428 CoupÃ© 1968 by Frua (for Â£50,000 â€“ 70,000), a few Bentleys: Bentley S3 LWB 1962 (Â£35,000 â€“ 40,000) and Bentley Continental T 1997 (Â£45,000 â€“ 55,000).
