This design is inspired by the 1961 Ferrari 250 GT California which starred in the 1986 classic ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off’.
Bueller?... Bueller?... Bueller?
When Ferris’s buddy Cameron said only 100 were made he wasn’t exactly right, in fact only 55 were produced & only 34 had covered headlights. An original 250 would have a value north of $2.5 million, so it’s no surprise to know that the ‘original’ which appeared & was wrecked in the movie was in fact a fake.
‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off’ was written in less than a week by John Hughes who turned the screenplay into his first film. Shot with a budget of $6 million it was one of the top grossing films of 1986 & made Matthew Broderick a top Hollywood star.
