Even if you have the means, Ferris would not recommend picking up his Ferrari California movie-prop

Posted on 13 April, 2010

We reported just a couple of weeks ago that the replica Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder – built atop an MG for use in the cult classic Ferris Bueller’s Day Off – was heading to the auction block. But with the auction fast approaching, the man who played Ferris has publicly discouraged anyone from actually buying the replicar in question.

The remarks were made by Matthew Broderick – the actor put on the map by his lead role in Ferris – at the debut for The Addams Family, a remake of another classic, starring his longtime friend Nathan Lane. Speaking with journalists from the red carpet, Broderick recalled that the car “often didn’t start” when they were filming and characterized it as “unreliable”. If you say so, Ferris, but that’s hardly cause to drive out through a glass wall and into the ravine below. Thanks for the tip, POV!
