Correction: An earlier version of this post erroneously stated that the Ferrari 275 GTB/4*S N.A.R.T. Spider was featured in "Bueller." Thanks to our commenters for pointing out the error.

I won't claim to be a self proclaimed expert on this topic so I rely on credible sources and articles.  

 

This also from the article I linked.

That car, which was modeled on the Ferrari 250GT California, sold for $235,000, NBC Bay Area reported. The car is actually an ersatz Ferrari, built to order for the film by Neil Glassmoyer of Modena Design and Development. 

Glassmoyer told KSBW that the car was unlike most Hollywood models: 

“A lot of movie cars are just for looks, they don't perform well at all. This car has over 500 horsepower (and a) very sophisticated chassis. It handles better than it looks and that was the main thing I wanted to do when we were building this car."

No expert either. They could be variants of the same thing for all I know, Ferrari has made a lot of cars and what you posted makes sense.

 

I do have a sudden urge to skip the rest of the day however, maybe take in a parade yahoo.gif

For movie purposes, there may have been more than one version of the car. th_dunno-1[1].gif

 

I'll see your urge and raise you a ball game.
