Matthew Broderick Wouldn’t Recommend That You Buy the Bueller Ferrari

The Ferrari that Ferris Bueller took for a joyride will be going up for auction in London on April 19, but the grown-up Ferris — Matthew Broderick, that is — will not be bidding. “I don’t think I would do that,” Broderick told us at the opening night of The Addams Family, which stars his friend and Producers co-star Nathan Lane. The car on auction is not a real Ferrari, he noted, but a replica, reportedly a modified MG. “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,” Broderick explained. (You can read more about this, if you care to, here.) The 1986 teen-comedy classic may have made him a star, but Broderick is putting sentimentality aside. “My memory of that car is that it often didn’t start. That’s all I remember,” he said of the auto, which is estimated to fetch $45,000 to $60,000 at auction. Then he grimaced: “Which I probably shouldn’t say; I don’t want to bring the price down. But, uh, it was unreliable, that car.”
