Take A Day Off, Buy This GT Spyder California From ‘Ferris Bueller’

This is one righteous 1985 Modena GT Spyder California. In fact, this is the “Ferrari” made famous in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off which Ferris borrowed from his friend Cameron’s father for his now infamous day off.

While devotees of the film will easily recall the car as a Ferrari, car aficionados would note that it was not a Ferrari at all, but rather a Modena. In fact, this is one of three Modenas built for the film. The El Cajon, CA builder utilized many Ferrari elements to create an exterior that closely resembled the Ferrari 250 GT California, but the fact remains the car is not.

Chassis N0.3 is being offered by Mecum Auctions at their high-dollar Monterey, CA auction in August and while this car doesn’t carry quite the accolades that Ferrari does it remains a pop culture icon and one that was recognized by the Smithsonian Historical Vehicle Association Hall of Fame as an inductee.
