Ferrari from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off snags $337,000 — and he’s not even driving

Life moves pretty fast – but this car doesn’t.

An iconic prop Ferrari from the cult classic “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” sold for a cool $337,500 on Saturday — although it doesn’t actually drive.

The replica Ferrari 250 GT California was used in the scene where Cameron Frye (played by Alan Ruck) accidentally causes his father’s prized vehicle to fall through the garage window into the woods below.

With a real California Spyder Ferrari being one of the most desirable classic cars, selling for over $15 million, the producers decided to have Modena Design & Development produce three highly detailed copies for the 1986 film.

“This ‘crash car’ was built and used exclusively for this memorable sequence when it was thrown backwards through the glass of Cameron’s father’s garage and fell to the ground underneath,” Dallas-based Heritage Auctions said on its website.

The prop car has all Ferrari finishes – it was rebuilt as a display piece after production ended.

Constructed with a fiberglass body bolted to a rolling chassis, the faux-rari was completed with tan vinyl seats; a matte black fiberglass dashboard with instrumentation; a wood-trimmed steering wheel; and of course the famous Prancing Horse logo.

“This ‘car’ is a prop, not a working car. There is no engine or drive train,” confirmed Heritage Auctions.

The car used in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off sold for $396,000 at auction in 2020, while the iconic patterned sweater vest worn by Matthew Broderick in the film sold for $143,750 on Saturday . Ferrari from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off snags $337,000 — and he’s not even driving
