If you were a big fan of the 1980s, then there is no way you don’t know the movie Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. The most famous scene from the movie was when Alan Ruck (known as Cameron Frye in the movie) beat the hell out of a Ferrari California Spyder, which hurt the feelings of many enthusiasts around the world. Well, worry not, because the only way Paramount Pictures allowed Ruck to beat the hell out of a Ferrari was simple: it wasn’t a Ferrari.

The car was really a MG that was topped with a fiberglass Ferrari body to look like the real thing.

The current owner of the car, Bonhams of London, is now ready to sell it. Bonhams expects the car to go for about $40,000 to $54,000 according to its online catalog.

Nonetheless, Matthew Broderick, who played Ferris in the movie, recently told New York Magazine that he will not be bidding on the car. Why?

“It was a kit car. We had a real Ferrari that we looked at in the garage, but when we drove, it was not real, and that”s what this is. My memory of that car is that it often didn’t start. That’s all I remember – which I probably shouldn’t say; I don’t want to bring the price down. But, uh, it was unreliable, that car.”

    You can totally tell its not a real ferrari in the movie. Look at the lights, and trim on the car. It looked like a kit to me all along. Also the real ferrari cal GT can be worth in the million dollar range. They wouldn’t have wasted a real one. So for me, knowing the car in the movie was a kit just confirms it.
