Ferris Bueller’s 1985 Modena GT Spyder California

Ferris Bueller's 1985 Modena GT Spyder California

A pivotal scene in the classic film Ferris Bueller‘s Day Off is when Ferris lays his eyes on a rare 1961 Ferrari 250 GT California. What most people don’t know is that the movie studio actually used a replica created by Modena Design and Development — which has now become just as coveted as the original inspiration. As 1 of 3 automobiles ever crafted in this design, Chassis No. 0003 retains its eye-catching steel-tube frame and red hue. It also includes a 5.0L V-8 engine with aluminum heads and roller rockers, along with Ferrari elements including the windshield, grill, vents and body. Neil Glassmoyer, a founder of Modena Design, took nine months to restore the vehicle, which comes with a certificate of authenticity from Modena Design, original VIN tags and some Ferris Bueller memorabilia. Head to Mecum Auctions to learn more and bid on the car. For more automobile news, take a look at the Aston Martin BD4GT Zagato which recently became the most valuable British car.
