The famous Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder replica used in the \'80s film classic Ferris Bueller\'s Day Off is being auctioned off this weekend (August 17, to be exact) at the fifth annual Mecum Daytime Auction at the Hyatt Regency in Monterey, California.

Built by Neil Glassmoyer of Modena Design and Development, the car is one of three built for the filming of the movie and \"might be the only surviving example.\"

\"They gave us four weeks to build the movie cars,\" recalled Glassmoyer. \"I always said we build two and a half cars: Two were interchangeably used as main and stunt cars, and one was a rolling fiberglass shell that was used in the destruction scene. This car was actually intended for the stunt work, but both saw action, and both wound up with broken front suspension bolts because the big-jump scene took nine takes between the two cars.\"

Fully restored by Glassmoyer, the car is now up for sale \"directly from the original builder.\"
