This 'Ferris Bueller’-Inspired Dream Garage Is the Ultimate Automotive Man Cave
This stunning $10 million "Dream Garage" inspired by Ferris Bueller's Day Off is a pristine showroom for classic and modern supercars alike.
Austin's Mark Ashby Design joined forces with Dalgleish Construction, Shiflet Group Architects to bring this ultimate car collector's fantasy to life.
The house and ill-fated Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder (which was actually a replica) owned by the father of Ferris' pal, Cameron Frye, in the iconic 1986 coming-of-age movie served as a starting point for the design.
“I knew the homeowner had an affinity for the ‘80s, so the goal here was to tip our hats to the movie Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and luxuriate on that theme,” Michele Lorenz, the creative director at Mark Ashby Design, told Robb Report.
And luxuriate they did. The three-story structure is even more impressive than the one featured in the film, with a custom lift that carries a car from the basement to the mezzanine, a plethora of rare restored, vintage BMW art scattered throughout, and a custom neon sign that reads "Live for the journey, not the destination" in the client's own handwriting.
Other stylish features include a high-end sound system, Andy Warhol wallpaper, crimson-leather sofas, and wood-paneled walls, one of which houses a secret closet.
As for the home owner's stash of rides, exact prices and models weren't provided. Art shows multiple BMWs and Porsches from different eras plus a vintage motorcycle. Sources told Robb Report that they carry a combined value in the multimillions.
As Ferris would say, the Dream Garage is definitely "so choice."
