One of the best movies ever made, a definite teen classic,red bottoms, is Ferris Bueller's Day Off. Do you remember the sporty little red car that Ferris insisted on driving through the streets of downtown Chicago and unmercifully was wrecked? The one where two parking attendants took on a joy ride,christian louboutin outlet? The one that he convinced Cameron he would be able to "erase" any mileage put on the car by driving home backwards? The only car that they could conceivably and believably pick up Ferris' girlfriend Sloane from high school in? Yes, that car,christian louboutin outlet.
That car was a Ferrari 250GT California Spyder,air jordan shoes. This car played an integral part in the movie,air jordan shoes, it signified Ferris' day off,jordan shoes, and it was the source and means of Cameron's problems. At the time of the movie, this version of the Ferrari was already the famous 250 series with only 55 ever being made and only 34 had the same covered headlights,christian louboutin outlet. This model was designed specifically for the American market,red bottom shoes, after being convinced by Jon Von Neumann and Luigi Chenetti to create a performance vehicle named after their best market.
It features only two seats,christian louboutin shoes, a convertible top,air jordan shoes, and more horsepower than in its standard European trim,jordan shoes. It has the same 140 mph horsepower and the same competition chassis as the Ferrari's lapping the race track. The California Spyder emerged with supercar performance and became highly desirable due to its limited availability,jordan shoes.
This car was definitely the scene stealer in Ferris Bueller's Day off and even years later is quite memorable,christian louboutin shoes. But here are some facts you may not know:
The Ferrari used in the film wasn't a real Ferrari, since it was too expensive to rent, they made three modified MG sports car,jordan shoes, with fiberglass covers. The MG sports car is a British sports car brand founded in 1924 The MG got its name from Morris Garages a dealer of Morris cars in Oxford, England.
In addition to three modified MG sports car,red bottom shoes, Modena Design and Research made additional replicas for using a Mustang 5,red bottoms.0 engine and an MGB frame,red bottom shoes.
After the movie,christian louboutin outlet, Ferrari pursued litigation against Modena Design and Research for replicating the Spyder,red bottoms.
The license plate of Cameron's father's car,christian louboutin shoes, only seen when Ferris drives the car out of Cameron's garage says "NRVOUS." Viewers of the movie never see the license plate of the car again.
When Ferris,air jordan shoes, Sloan and Cameron pick up the Ferrari at the parking garage you can see the movie camera and its reflection in window directly behind Ferris and Cameron.
In the scene where the Ferrari crashed,red bottoms, the fiber glass hood ripped off but branches were put over the rip to hid it so that the camera didn't record it,christian louboutin shoes.
Only 104 of these Spyders were ever produced,red bottom shoes, hence the reason behind why the producers received several angry letters from car aficionados who believed that they had wrecked a real Ferrari in the film. The car that was parked to the left of the Ferrari was also a MG, a MG TC.
