Which iconic movie car would you like to own? The DeLorean DMC-12 from Back to the Future? The Dodge Monaco (aka the Bluesmobile) from The Blues Brothers? The Ferrari 250GT Spyder California from Ferris Bueller's Day Off? If you said the last one, and you have a spare 70 grand, you're in luck. The single surviving fiberglass-bodied replica from the 1986 John Hughes classic will be up for the bidding in London next month by the auction house Bonhams.

Their website listing for the item estimates that the "ready-to-drive" car will go for somewhere between $45,000 and $67,000, which is pretty affordable for the die hard Ferrisphile. Even for the non-fan who wishes to pretend he has a real, original 250GT Spyder California -- given that those rarities can fetch as much as $10 million -- it's quite a steal. Either way, you're sure to impress.

Personally, as a longtime Ferris fan, I'd prefer the other replica, the one destroyed in the film's finale. You can drive around with the working model, which is sure to remind everyone of the joyride car from the movie regardless if they know it's the real deal. But, as for me, the smashed-up Ferrari would be a more significant collectible. Of course, I also hate driving, and when I did own a car -- one about a hundredth the value of this one -- I was already Cameron-level nervous about wrecking it.

So who's up for taking a trip to the UK on April 19th to snatch this thing up?
