In Ferris Bueller's Day Off (the original movie, not the TV series), Ferris's friend's dad has a 250 Cali SWB Spider which (spoiler alert) gets driven, then wrecked. (Actually, they used replicas, except for a couple of detail shots during filming). The film was made in 1986, and the car was a 1961 model. Meaning the car those kids salivated over was 25 years old at the time of filming. What 25 year old (approx) Ferrari would they use today, if making the movie for the first time? Some thoughts: I believe a 250 was around $700k, in today's money, back in 1986 (costing $300k then, $700k in today's buying power). There was no V12 front engined Spider (like the 250) 25 years ago in 1993. So the choices open to today's filmmaker would be: 512 TR (the only 12 cyl Ferrari in 1993) - much cheaper, at around $200k for a good one now F40 - older (1987), but with superstar quality, and even more expensive For a Spider, the only 1993 choice would be a 348 or Mondial T, no disrespect to either, but I don't think they have the Wow factor of the 250. I'm thinking Ferris would drive an F40; but then they wouldn't be able to do their famous threesome cruise around Chicago. No room. Or maybe a converted (not Factory) Daytona Spider? The price would be about right, it would fit all of them in the same way, and look cool, but it would be a 50 year old car now, rather than a 25 year old car in the original. Which of these cars would have the same effect now, as they 250 had back then?
