Last of ‘Ferris Bueller’ Ferrari replicas up for sale

Life moves pretty fast – especially when you're driving a 1961 Ferrari 250GT California. And now you can own the last of three Ferrari replicas built for the '80s classic Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

You remember the car, right? "Less than a hundred were made," Cameron says. "My father spent three years restoring this car. It is his love, it is his passion."

And it will be your fault if you don't place a bid. The car – actually one of three 1985 Modena GT Spyder Californias built for the film – will be auctioned off Aug. 23-25 in Monterey, Calif., reports Movieweb.com.

Using real Ferraris would have been too expensive – especially considering what happens to the car near the film's finale. Still, the Modena packs a punch with a 427 cubic inch V-8 engine that delivers up to 500 horsepower.

This is the third of the three replicas built. The one that crashes through the garage window was pretty much dead on arrival, Movieweb says, while the second was sold at auction for $230,000 in 2013.
